Gen Kim Yong-chol's visit came a day after he met US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in NY, who described their talks of denuclearisation as "substantive". American delegations are also meeting with North Koreans in Panmunjom and Singapore as part of efforts to confirm the summit that may take place on June 12 in Singapore. "I think it's going to be a process, but the relationships are building and that's very positive", he said.
After meeting Kim Yong Chol, Pompeo had said the path to better relations between the USA and North Korea could take some time. He did state that he was unsure whether the proposed meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un will go ahead but maintained that "real progress" had been made despite "a great deal of work to do".
