Pompeo said that the president’s senior-most expert in weapons of mass destruction is on the ground in Singapore and that officials with PhDs in every relevant area are waiting on standby in Washington.
‘The ultimate objective we seek from the diplomacy with North Korea has not changed. The complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula is the only outcome that the United States will accept,’ he asserted at a televised briefing.
Until that time, he said ‘sanctions will remain’ in place and ‘those measures will increase’ if talks with North Korea stall.

‘We’re prepared to take security assurances that are different, unique, than have been provided, that America’s been willing to provide previously. We think this is both necessary and appropriate,’ he asserted.
