Еще of talks in Pyongyang, noting that he raised «a full range of issues with them with respect to their nuclear programme, to the abductee issue — all the issues that I know matter to the United States, Japan and indeed to the world.» Following Pompeo's third visit to Pyongyang, North Korea accused Washington of making «gangster-like» demands, noting that the US visit had been «regrettable.» North Korea's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that «the high-level talks this time brought us in a dangerous situation where we may be shaken in our unshakable will for denuclearisation.» Pyongyang's statement appears to contradict Pompeo, who maintains that «progress» was made during negotiations with North Korea.
