WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has spoken with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-Wha to discuss the next steps on engaging with North Korea after the Singapore summit earlier this month, the State Department said in a statement.

The two officials agreed that pressure on North Korea must continue until it denuclearises, the statement said.
