N. Korea's denuclearization problem a "decades-long challenge" that takes time: Pompeo Updated: 2018-07-12 12:21:04 KST

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has once again said that getting North Korea to dismantle its nuclear and missiles programs will be a "decades-long challenge."
According to CNN, that's what Pompeo told reporters upon his arrival in Belgium for the NATO summit on Wednesday -- that getting the North to make the fundamental strategic decision that its nuclear weapons are actually a threat to the regime itself will be a long process.
He was addressing the criticism that his most recent visit to Pyongyang accomplished little or nothing.
He said the same thing on Monday when he was in Afghanistan, adding that expecting to change North Korea's mind in a matter of hours would be "ludicrous."
