The White House published photos of a personal meeting between former CIA head Mike Pompeo and DPRK leader Kim Jong Un. An approximately secret event took place at the end of March, when an American official visited North Korea to discuss nuclear disarmament.

For the first time about the visit of Pompeo to the DPRK, the American media reported referring to sources in the presidential administration. April 18 Trump confirmed the meeting of the head of the CIA with Kim Jong-no, which is needed to prepare for the arrival of the US president himself. This was the first official meeting between US and North Korean politicians since 2000.

On April 26, the US Senate approved Mike Pompeo for the post of US Secretary of State, where in March Rex Tillerson was sacked. Against the background of the meeting with Kim Jong-no, the former head of the CIA recalled his statementabout the leader of the DPRK from October 2017.

As for Kim Jong-un, then, given the history of the CIA, if it disappears, I’ll just keep silent.
