US Mike Pompeo meets Kim Jong Un

CIA Director Mike Pompeo recently travelled to North Korea to meet with its leader Kim Jong Un, United States media reported.
The highly unusual, secret visit comes ahead of a planned historic summit between the North Korean leader and US President Donald Trump, currently planned for sometime in late May or early June.
It will be the first official meeting between a member of the ruling Kim family and a sitting US president.
The White House declined to comment on CIA director’s visit.
However, Trump, who is currently hosting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, said on Tuesday that the US and North Korea were holding direct talks at “extremely high levels” in preparation for an anticipated meeting  with Kim.
“We have had direct talks,” the President said.
The White House later clarified Trump’s comments to make it clear he has not yet talked directly with Kim.
