The United States hopes to get back to denuclearization talks with North Korea in the coming days or weeks.US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said negotiations are aimed at dismantling Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs.

In June, US president Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un agreed to reopen working-level talks when they met at the border between North Korea and South Korea.

North Korea has fired a series of short-range missiles in recent weeks in protest against U.S.-South Korea joint military exercises and the adoption of new weapons, complicating the reopening of the talks.

Pompeo said that despite those short-range tests, which he called disappointing, Kim has not violated the commitments he made to Trump and the U.S. goal remains a verified denuclearized North Korea.
