Secretary of State nominee and current CIA Director Mike Pompeo held secret, high-level talks with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un over Easter Weekend; clearing the path for upcoming negotiations between the despot and President Trump.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the CIA chief spoke with Kim regarding next month’s high-stakes meeting with Trump, as well as the full denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and the possible end of the 68-year-long Korean War.

“I’m optimistic that the United States government can set the conditions for that appropriately so that the president and the North Korean leader can have that conversation will set us down the course of achieving a diplomatic outcome that America so desperately – America and the world so desperately need,” Pompeo told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee during his confirmation hearings earlier this month.

“We have had direct talks at very high levels, extremely high levels with North Korea,” Trump said during his recent trip to Florida, refusing to confirm or deny the meeting.
