Pompeo said a USA -led sanctions pressure campaign on Pyongyang would not be eased until North Korea gives up nuclear weapons and that the United States had no intention of making concessions to Pyongyang.

"A bad deal is not an option", Pompeo said in his written opening statement for a House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee hearing.

Appearing before the House foreign affairs committee, Pompeo was asked repeatedly about his two recent meetings with the North Korean leader and what the USA meant by the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, a goal that both parties share but which is vaguely defined.

Washington is not meant to make concessions to Pyongyang during the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and the DPRK's top leader Kim Jong Un slated on June 12 in Singapore, he added.

Trump and South Korea's leader met in the Oval Office on Tuesday, and President Moon Jae-in says "the fate and the future of the Korean Peninsula hinge" on the summit set for June 12 in Singapore.

"We're optimistic that we can achieve an outcome that would be great for the world", Pompeo said. "If we can get the two to agree that that's the end state we're working for, we will have a good day".

But the U.S. can not protect Kim from threats inside North Korea.

Pompeo said Trump would be leading the talks but declined to discuss how many people, or who, would be on the summit team.

The United States and South Korea are working to keep the scheduled USA summit with North Korea on track - even after President Donald Trump's comment that "there's a very substantial chance" it won't go off as planned.

And if North Korea truly has completed its nuclear program, as it says it has, then it no longer needs an active test site anyway.

"When Bolton gave an interview and talked about following a Libya model, Pyongyang said, 'I don't think so, that ain't happening".

On the other hand, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo adopted a more positive stance by stating that the U.S. is continuing their preparations as the summit is going to happen. "I'm very hopeful that meeting will take place".
