U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo admitted Friday there was still "a ways to go" on North Korea as Washington seeks to push Pyongyang to move faster along the path towards denuclearization.At the forum and in meetings on the sidelines, Pompeo is expected to push key powers involved in efforts to curtail the North's nuclear ambitions to keep up sanctions pressure.Cutting off oil and fuel to the North would require enforcement primarily by China, which supplies most of North Korea's energy needs, but also by Russia, which delivers some oil to Pyongyang.After attending the Singapore meeting, the North's Ri will head to Iran for an official visit, North Korea's official news agency KCNA reported.
