NEW YORK -- North Korea has agreed to Washington's definition of denuclearization and progress "is happening," U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee at a hearing on Wednesday.

Pompeo defended the administration's North Korea strategy in an often contentious exchange with senators from both parties, who have largely been left out of the loop.
