Pompeo ‘Regrets’ Lack of Talks With North Korea (Cambodia mentioned)

The secretary of state, in Thailand for the ASEAN summit, says he's 'optimistic' the discussion will resume 'before too long'.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he could not meet with North Korean officials in Bangkok on the sidelines of an ASEAN summit that came just hours after North Korea’s latest ballistic missile test.

Previous ASEAN meetings were an opportunity for talks between U.S. and North Korean officials. Pompeo said he hopes to resume diplomatic contacts soon.

Talks among ASEAN members are set to continue Friday in Bangkok.
