Korea talks despite 'gangster' rebuke U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Japan’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Taro Kono and South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha listen to a reporter’s question July 8, 2018 in Tokyo. The three leaders met to discuss Pompeo’s recent visit to Pyongyang. By CAITLIN DOORNBOS | STARS AND STRIPES Published: July 8, 2018 TOKYO, Japan — Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is sticking with a positive assessment of his talks in Pyongyang despite North Korea calling American denuclearization requests “gangster-like.” Pompeo initially described discussions with senior communist official Kim Yong Chol in the North’s capital Friday and Saturday as “productive.” He stuck with the upbeat assessment after arriving in Tokyo for his first visit as secretary of state Sunday despite complaints by the North that the U.S. was not acting in the spirit of the June 12 summit in Singapore between President Donald Trump and leader Kim Jong Un. “The U.S. side came up only with its unilateral and gangster-like demand for denuclearization,” a North Korean foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement to the official KCNA news agency Saturday. However, Pompeo told reporters in Tokyo that his talks with Kim were “good faith, productive conversation[s].” The “requests” asked of North Korea were in line with the “unanimous decision by the [United Nations] Security Council on what needs to be achieved,” he said. “If the requests were gangster-like, then the whole world is a gangster,” Pompeo said, brushing off the North’s statement as a “stray comment” to the media. North Korea “did not push back” regarding the broad nature of calls for denuclearization and reaffirmed a commitment to destroy its missile-engine test site, he said. “I am counting on Chairman Kim to be determined to follow through on the commitments,” said Pompeo, who has held three rounds of talks in Pyongyang.
