NEW YORK -- The U.S. is arranging a second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but looks first to ensure that "the two leaders are put in a position where we can make substantial progress" on denuclearization, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday.

"We're working on it," Pompeo told Fox News of the potential for a follow-up to the June summit between Trump and Kim in Singapore. "But there's still a little bit of work left to do to make sure the conditions are right."
