WASHINGTON, March 4 (CGTN) -- U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday he was hopeful the United States would send a delegation to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in the coming weeks, though talks between U.S. President Donald Trump and DPRK leader Kim Jong Un ended without yielding any agreement between the two countries.
"I am hopeful, although I have no commitment yet, that we will be back at it, that I'll have a team in Pyongyang in the next couple weeks. I'm continuing to work to find those places where there's a shared interest," Pompeo told the Iowa Farm Bureau.
China earlier reiterated its stance on the DPRK-U.S. relations, calling for dialogue and urging the two sides to meet each other halfway and push forward the political settlement process of the Korean Peninsula issue on the basis of mutual respect.
The Republic of Korea (ROK) President Moon Jae-in Monday also called for a quick resumption of meetings between Kim and Trump, saying that he believed the two sides would reach an agreement "in the end."
