"This is your third visit to our country so I guess you are used to it now", Kim Yong Chol told Pompeo at the guesthouse, according to the report.

Major South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo, citing unnamed Washington sources, said the "Rocket Man" CD was a gift for Kim Jong-un, a reference to Mr Trump's "Little Rocket Man" gibe of past year.

Instead, it seems as though the USA needs to get assurances that Kim is still committed to the document he signed in Singapore that calls for the "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" - and to determine what that phrase means to each side.

Before President Trump's historic meeting with Kim, Pompeo had insisted the US would only accept complete, verifiable, irreversible, denuclearization, commonly referred to by its acronym CVID. The other was a letter from Mr. Trump.

The National Weather Service reported later Tuesday morning flooding had occurred in the area along Highway 14. A cold front is approaching from the northwest, firing up a few thunderstorms as it inches closer.

Following a summit in Singapore between the notorious leaders last month, Trump has delivered an unusual gift to Kim Jong Un - a copy of Elton John's "Rocket Man".

Pompeo plans to have a day and a half of meetings with the North's officials to follow up on the summit deal, which calls for improved bilateral relations and the complete denuclearization of Korea.

Hoffman ended by saying negotiations with the Soviet Union under President Reagan took years to play out and the situation with North Korea is still in its early days.

"I expect that the DPRK is ready to do the same". Chosun Ilbo reports that during Trump's first meeting with Kim, the North Korean dictator asked about the nickname.

"If they're serious, then we can get down to the business of defining the terms of final denuclearization", said one official.

"The more you come, the more trust we can build between one another".

After a almost three-hour meeting with Kim Yong-chol on Friday night, the pair broke up for dinner, with the U.S. side saying that talks would continue on Saturday morning. He said the Trump administration can not give in to demands from Russian Federation and China to loosen sanctions before denuclearization is achieved.

Secretary Pompeo will depart Pyongyang Saturday morning for Tokyo, where he is expected to meet with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono to discuss the outcomes of his talks in North Korea.

His round-the-world diplomatic voyage will then take him on to Vietnam and Abu Dhabi before he arrives in the Belgian capital Brussels to rejoin Mr Trump for next week's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.
