The below is attributable to Spokesperson Heather Nauert:

Secretary Michael R. Pompeo spoke by phone today with Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi. They discussed ongoing efforts to achieve our shared goal of the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. The Secretary noted that the DPRK has a bright future if it denuclearizes and emphasizes the continued importance of full enforcement of all relevant UN Security Council resolutions related to North Korea, especially as they relate to North Korea’s illegal exports of coal and imports of refined petroleum through UN-prohibited ship-to-ship transfers. They also discussed ongoing cooperation on the recent health related incident in Guangzhou, China, as well as other issues in the bilateral relationship.
