Pompeo added that the USA and world powers would maintain economic sanctions against North Korea until full denuclearization was achieved. If I paid attention to what the press said, I'd go nuts, and I refuse to do that.
"We had expected that the USA side would offer constructive measures that would help build trust based on the spirit of the leaders' summit ..."
In practical terms, Pompeo mentioned only that officials from both sides would meet on July 12 to discuss the repatriation of the remains of some United States soldiers killed during the 1950-1953 Korean War.
Talks with the North have been led by Pompeo since Joseph Yun, the former point man on U.S.

North Korea says it is disappointed with the way the US has conducted itself in bilateral discussions, saying that the progress made at last month's historic summit in Singapore is in danger of being eroded.
The statement came shortly after Pompeo said he had made progress "on nearly all of the central issues" in the talks, including on setting a timeline for its denuclearisation, though more work remained to be done.
