Trump calls off the Pompeo’s visit to North Korea
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will not be travelling to North Korea in the immediate future after Donald Trump asked him to call off a planned trip.
The president tweeted that insufficient progress was being made in dismantling Pyongyang’s nuclear programme.
He also suggested China was not doing enough to put pressure on North Korea – due to trade tensions with the US.
After his summit with the North Korean leader in June, Mr Trump said the country was no longer a nuclear threat.
But since then there have been several reports that it is failing to dismantle nuclear facilities.
One of the most recent warnings came from unnamed US officials, who told the Washington Post that North Korea appeared to be building new intercontinental ballistic missiles.
The UN’s nuclear agency (IAEA) has also said North Korea is continuing with its nuclear programme.
