U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will meet with his North Korean counterpart in New York this week to continue discussions on denuclearization, the State Department said Monday.

Pompeo will meet with Kim Yong Chol, a close aide to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, on Thursday to discuss ways to advance a denuclearization agreement reached by U.S. President Donald Trump and the leader in Singapore in June, the department said in a statement, Yonhap reports.

"Secretary Pompeo will travel to New York City with Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun to meet with DPRK Vice Chairman of the Central Committee Kim Yong Chol on November 8," the statement said.

"The Secretary and Vice Chairman Kim will discuss making progress on all four pillars of the Singapore Summit joint statement, including achieving the final, fully verified denuclearization of the DPRK," it added.
