A senior North Korean official arrived in Washington on Thursday apparently for negotiations with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on a second summit between the two sides.

A plane from Beijing carrying Kim Yong-chol, known as one of the closest aides to leader Kim Jong-un, and his entourage touched down at Dulles International Airport.

It’s the first time that a North Korean government official has flown directly into the U.S. capital without any stopover in another US city.

Stephen Biegun, Washington’s special representative for Pyongyang, greeted the envoy.

Biegun refused to answer reporters’ questions at the airport.

Kim, vice chairman of the ruling Workers’ Party Central Committee, is expected to have talks with Pompeo on Friday in a bid to finalize details of another meeting between the leaders of the Korean War foes.

He will also likely pay a courtesy call on Trump and convey Kim Jong-un’s letter. (Yonhap)
