US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo addressed the upcoming summit between the United States and North Korea during a press briefing alongside Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Washington DC on Wednesday, as doubt remains over whether or not it will take place. «We're still working, driving towards the date. I hope that it takes place. Chairman Kim requested meeting, President Trump agreed. I... Еще hope that we can have this historic opportunity to do something that would truly transform this global challenge that's been threatening the world,» Pompeo said. Wang echoed his remarks, adding: «We hope it will go ahead as scheduled and we hope it will be productive. It will deliver outcomes.» The summit between Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un is set to take place in Singapore on June 12, although the US President has stated that it may not happen. On trade, Wang said there was an 'imbalance' that needs addressing but commended the 'strategic guidance' of Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
