North Korea demands removal of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from Atomic Talks

North Korea has requested the expulsion of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from atomic talks, blaming him for “rambling” and being “heedless”.

A senior remote service official said that further talks would be “lousy” if Mr Pompeo was included, asking that he be supplanted by somebody “progressively cautious”.It comes after North Korea said it had tried another “strategic guided weapon”.

The test is the first since a February summit in Hanoi between the nations’ chiefs finished without an understanding. Mr Pompeo visited North Korea multiple times a year ago incorporating for a gathering with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
