WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is en route to North Korea ahead of Trump’s planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump said Tuesday afternoon that Pompeo will be arriving in the country shortly and has meetings scheduled.

It will be Pompeo’s second known visit to the country. Trump revealed last month that Pompeo also met with Kim over Easter weekend.

Trump says the time and date of his planned meeting with Kim have now been agreed to, but he has yet to reveal where or when it will happen.

Trump broke the news while announcing his plans to withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement.
