The remarkable news that CIA Director and U.S. Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo made a secret trip to North Korea where he met North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is a measure both of the head-spinning pace of diplomacy on the Korean Peninsula and of the seriousness with which U.S. President Donald Trump's administration takes the upcoming Trump-Kim summit.U.S. officials have met from time to time with senior North Korean officials. Pompeo's trip was historic not just because he met with Kim, but because it involved planning for an even more historic event – the Trump-Kim summit.The Trump-Kim summit has been made more complicated by the fact that in planning for the North-South summit, Seoul has said that the two sides will discuss a peace treaty to formally end the 1950-1953 war.To sign a peace treaty with North Korea, the United States would need to first have diplomatic relations with Pyongyang.In any case, North Korea will be the ultimate test for Pompeo and Trump's foreign policy.
