(Newser) – Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is on course to rack up more visits to North Korea than Dennis Rodman. The State Department announced Tuesday that Pompeo will meet with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang on Sunday during an Asia trip that will also include stops in South Korea, China, and Japan, Politico reports. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Tuesday that Pompeo's fourth trip to the country in under a year shows "forward progress and momentum," the Guardian reports. "Of course, we have quite a ways to go but we look forward to the next steps in this conversation," she said. Pompeo is expected to discuss denuclearization and terms for a second summit between Kim and President Trump, who told a recent rally that he "fell in love" with the North Korean leader.
