WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday that Washington is continuing to work to establish dialogue with North Korea and is very hopeful the conversation can continue, though he declined to comment on timing or specifics.

“We continue to work to establish dialogue and have substantive conversations about how we might deliver this really good outcome, this outcome of delivering peace and stability to the entire peninsula,” Pompeo told reporters following U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun’s three days of talks in Seoul.
