Pompeo also said he hopes to see Chairman Kim Jong-un come to the negotiating table for a better outcome, . which would ultimately help the North Korean people as well as the worldwide community.

North Korea's continued missile tests are of concern to the US government, and negotiations to halt Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions have lagged, Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said Tuesday.

The message comes as U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun is in South Korea to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

News of Biegun's trip came after U.S. President Donald Trump said last Saturday that Kim had told him he was ready to resume stalled denuclearization talks with the United States and would stop recent missile testing as soon as U.S.

The fact that his visit coincides with the end of the Combined Command Post Training, a joint South Korea-US military exercise that was met with a show of force from the North, is fueling speculation about the revival of talks.

Asked whether he was concerned about North Korea's sixth round of missile tests since July, Pompeo responded "Yes, I wish that they would not".

In a tweet posted on August 10, Trump said Kim had stated "very nicely" in a personal letter that he would like to meet and resume negotiations as soon as the drills are over.
