Pompeo: 'We don't expect Chairman Kim to tell us the truth'

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) In an interview on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday (May 5), U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo responded to North Korea's missile launch, saying he still believes diplomacy can lead to denuclearization, adding that he doesn't expect Kim Jong Un to tell the truth.

"We're still evaluating the appropriate response.

But I want everyone in your audience to know we're going to exhaust every diplomatic opportunity there is.

I continue to invite our counterparts for negotiations.

We still believe there is a path forward where Chairman Kim can denuclearize without resort to anything beyond diplomacy.

We're hopeful that we can achieve that.

We've made real progress between Singapore and Hanoi and we hope that progress can continue.

It would be the best outcome for the world and Chairman Kim's commitment that he made to President Trump back in Singapore remains in effect.

He has said he's prepared to denuclearize.

My task as America's most senior diplomat is to achieve that," Pompeo said.

Pompeo also responded to remarks by Cindy Warmbier, who has called Kim a liar.

Warmbier is the mother of American college student Otto Warmbier who died shortly after his release from a North Korean prison.

"We don't expect Chairman Kim to tell us the truth.

That's why we're going to verify any denuclearization that takes place.

That's why we will ensure that we see actual on-the-ground- on-the-ground outcomes.

We're not going to take anyone's word for it but we want to work to try and do that in a way that is a negotiated solution and that's our mission set."
