US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that he and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un had made unspecified progress on Sunday toward an agreement for Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons.

Kim said he believed the dialogue between the two countries would continue to develop favorably "based on the deep confidence between the two leaders of the two countries", and expressed gratitude to Trump for making a honest effort to implement the agreement made at their historic June summit, KCNA said.

South Korea's presidential office later said that Kim and Pompeo had agreed to arrange a second summit between the North and the U.S. "as soon as possible".

During a closed meeting with Moon, Pompeo said he and Kim agreed to arrange the second U.S.

The Koreas in past months have held a flurry of talks, including three summits, amid a global diplomatic push to resolve the nuclear standoff with North Korea.

"What we all hope will be the denuclearization and the change in the relationship here on the peninsula..."

"I dearly hope that your latest visit, as well as the upcoming U.S".

Later that afternoon, Pompeo touched down in Seoul to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

But the official added: 'It's going to a long haul, ' according to The New York Times.

He visited Tokyo on Saturday and will head to Beijing before returning to the US on Monday.

Pompeo's fourth trip to Pyongyang comes after Kim's reaffirmation of his resolve to denuclearize during his third summit with Moon in Pyongyang last month. But his hosts will be looking for US flexibility on North Korean demands to improve ties and even reach a formal end to the Korean War.

At the heart of the impasse has been two fundamentally different approaches to denuclearization.

Until recently, Pyongyang has appeared to be increasing its demands. Any diplomacy, multiple USA administrations have said, must have as its endgame the total abandonment of all North Korean bombs.

The IAEA said in August it did not find any indication that North Korea had stopped its nuclear activities, adding to doubts about the country's willingness to abandon its arsenal. "It is such an oxymoronic, two-faced behavior'".

The U.S., in its mission for a fully verified denuclearization of North Korea, demands that the country turn over a full inventory of its nuclear weapons program.

Some had argued that President Donald Trump should be awarded the Prize for his role in moving the normalization between North and South Korea.

Pompeo also spoke about additional denuclearization steps and Washington's monitoring of the verification process and "corresponding measures", Yoon said.
