"We are hopeful that we can continue to have conversation, negotiations," Pompeo told reporters at a press conference held at the State Department on Friday.
He confirmed that there is ongoing negotiation between the two sides, but refused to give the details, Xinhua reported.
According to Trump, Kim demanded relief from sanctions against Pyongyang "in their entirety" in exchange for denuclearising a "large portion" of the North Korea's nuclear program, something the United States could not agree to.
Dismissing Trump's claim, North Korea Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho has said that North Korea only proposed partial removal of the sanctions, wanting those impeding the livelihood of their people to be removed first.
