I had every expectation that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would live up to his commitment not to resume nuclear and missile testing, Mike said in a conference. 

 "We're (US government) hopeful that we can continue to have conversations, negotiations," the top US diplomat told reporters, adding that North Korea's Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui had left open the possibility of continued talks in the reported remarks. 

Mike also said  "It is their utmost desire to continue having conversations around this," Pompeo added. 

US officials have said they remain open to talks after the second summit between Kim and President Donald Trump collapsed last month with no deal, but have given no specifics.
