The U.S. and North Korea have reportedly agreed to hold another summit between Kim Jong-un and President Donald Trump. 

The announcement comes after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to Pyongyang Sunday, during which he met with Kim.

Pompeo also visited South Korea and briefed President Moon Jae-In on his talks with Kim. Moon has made several efforts to increase South Korea's diplomatic ties with the North, including three summits of his own with Kim.

Talks between the U.S. and North Korea have been stop-start, with denuclearization being the main sticking point.

No set date for the next summit has been announced yet, but the two sides reportedly hope to meet as soon as possible.
