U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday that Washington will agree to lift sanctions on North Korea if the country agrees to completely dismantle its nuclear weapons program, a move that would create economic prosperity that "will rival" South Korea.Pompeo's comments come ahead of a planned June 12 meeting in Singapore between North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump, the first such meeting between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader.Last month, Pompeo became the first known U.S. official to meet with Kim, where he helped lay the ground work for the upcoming meeting with Trump.He returned again to North Korea last week for a second meeting, after which Kim agreed to the historic release of three American prisoners.
