SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: «Don't know. I don't know the answer to that.» SOT, Official: «And our final question goes to Adam Shapiro with FOX News.» SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: «Let me just say Martha, while we won't be able to tell tomorrow, I will tell you we've made real progress in the last 72 hours towards setting the conditions, right, so your question really... Еще goes to what are the conditions. The conditions are putting President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong-un in a place where we think there can be real progress made by the two of them meeting. It does no good if we are in a place where we don't think there's real opportunity to place them together. We've made real progress towards that in the last 72 hours.» *JUMPCUT AT SOURCE* US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke of «real progress made in past 72 hours» over the planned US-North Korea summit after meeting with Vice-Chairman Kim Yong-chol in New York on Thursday. «Vice-Chairman Kim Yong-chol is now planning to travel to Washington to deliver a personal letter from Chairman Kim Jong-un,» Pompeo said. With negotiations ongoing, Pompeo was unable to confirm whether the original June 12 date would go ahead. Both figures are trying to revive the summit, after US President Donald Trump cancelled the meeting in a letter addressed to Kim, citing 'tremendous anger and open hostility' displayed by Pyongyang.
