White House releases photos from Mike Pompeo’s meeting with Kim Jong Un

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – White House releases photos from Mike Pompeo’s meeting with Kim Jong Un.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday shared photos of newly sworn-in Secretary of State Mike Pompeo meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un weeks earlier.

“Great to have Secretary Pompeo confirmed. He will do an excellent job helping @POTUS lead our efforts to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula,” Sanders tweeted.

Trump confirmed last week that Pompeo traveled to North Korea over Easter weekend, when he was still CIA director. News that he met with Kim Jong Un took Washington by surprise.
