Yet the Pentagon under Secretary of Defense Mattis articulates talking points that more closely represent the Obama administration's views concerning the nuclear accord. Congressman, welcome to the program. "We're getting irritated. We've been talking to them for 18 months and have had no progress on these issues", a diplomat said.

"You all - many of you - ask me a million questions about Joe Yun like he's the second coming of Christ".
"I think ultimately it happens". Instead, Tillerson's North Korea strategy seemed to be to beg Pyongyang for talks.
GREENE: Well, say more about that.
"I think the president likely will move away from it unless my, our European counterparts really come together on a framework". Joseph Yun, the special representative for North Korea policy, who retired last month and had years of experience and contact with North Korean officials.

Now, Pompeo - a former U.S. Army officer and Harvard Law School graduate who served in the House of Representatives before he was picked to lead the Central Intelligence Agency and is known to have Trump's ear - is expected to play a key role in planning for the Trump-Kim talks and on the larger North Korea issue.

We're at the top of the negotiator - negotiations with our person that's sitting down with him versus having an emissary. "I think it is going to go well". We've seen too many wars in our lifetime, and we're still paying the legacy for the Vietnam War and World War II. "I can only confirm this issue doesn't have anything to do with the joint plan of action". "Right? Separate capacity and someone who might well have intent and break those two apart".
