Washington wants North Korea to quickly give up all its nuclear weapons in a verifiable way in return for sanctions and economic relief.

On May 26, Kim had an unannounced meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who is acting as a go-between for the high-stakes summit between the North and the USA since the recent breakthrough in détente between Seoul and Pyongyang, to get the summit with Trump back on track.

Trump said he doesn't know what the letter will say but says he thinks "it'll be very positive".

On Wednesday, Kim Yong Chol, the vice chairman of the ruling North Korean Workers' Party's Central Committee, arrived in NY to hold talks with Pompeo as part of preparations for the US-North Korean summit in Singapore. A top North Korean official is in the US and met Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for dinner Wednesday, the highest-level talks between the two countries on American soil in 18 years.

Pompeo talks with Kim Yong Chol - the most critical of three tracks of negotiations now taking place between the two governments in the US, in the heavily fortified Korean Demilitarized Zone, and in Singapore - are aimed at determining whether a meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un, originally scheduled for June 12 but later cancelled by Trump, can be restored. "The people of #NorthKorea can have a brighter future and the world can be more peaceful".

Ship-to-ship transfers between North Korean ships and those of other United Nations member states are prohibited by a Security Council resolution adopted last September in response to North Korea's nuclear weapon and ballistic missile testing.
