N Korea at crossroads

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo travels to North Korea this week to begin nailing down the details of denuclearization, but whether Pyongyang will cooperate by disclosing the full scope of its nuclear program remains unclear.

The trip, scheduled for Thursday to Saturday, will be Pompeo's third to the country and his first since President Donald Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12. His negotiating partner is expected to again be Kim Yong Chol, the former spy chief who served as his leader's envoy on a high-profile visit to the U.S. in May.
