U.S. President Donald Trump Thursday played down the chances of a quick breakthrough in talks with North Korea about its nuclear arsenal, as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and a senior official from Pyongyang wrapped up two days of negotiations.It was not clear if Trump meant he would need a second summit with Kim to reach the U.S. goal of persuading North Korea to abandon its nuclear arms, or if he believed more lower-level talks were needed.Pompeo and high-ranking North Korean official Kim Yong Chol concluded two days of meetings in New York aimed at clearing the way for the summit. However, disputes between Washington and Pyongyang led Trump to announce on May 24 he was canceling the Singapore meeting with Kim, only to say the following day that it could still happen.
