Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled to North Korea on Friday and met with Kim Yong-chol, the Vice Chairman of North Korea's worker's party, to fill in details on denuclearization, reports Reuters.

The details: Kim Jong-un broadly declared North Korea would commit to denuclearize at his summit with President Trump in June, but Pompeo hopes to get more information on a concrete plan moving forward. He's also hoping to discuss recovering the remains of American soldiers from the Korean war after Jong-un promised he would send them back to the U.S.
