President Trump confirmed Wednesday that CIA Director Mike Pompeo recently made a secret visit to North Korea for a meeting with Kim Jong Un.
Here & Now's Eric Westervelt (@Ericnpr) speaks with retired Navy Adm. James Stavridis (@stavridisj), dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and former supreme allied commander of NATO, about U.S.-North Korea talks and the likelihood of the North abandoning its nuclear weapons program.
"If I were advising Kim Jong Un, I wouldn't advise him to do so," Stavridis says. "And I think that he is very unlikely to give up his nuclear weapons, as he looks at what has happened to other dictators, like [former Libyan Prime Minister] Muammar Gaddafi, who did so."
