North Korea, US resume nuclear diplomacy with Sweden talks

Parts of an underwater-launched ballistic missile test-fired on Wednesday fell inside Japan's exclusive economic zone.

HELSINKI, Finland — U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says teams from North Korea and the United States are in Sweden's capital to resume diplomacy talks on Pyongyang's nuclear program.

Pompeo, who was in Greece for the last leg of a European tour, said it's too early to know if talks in Stockholm on Saturday will yield progress but he was hopeful they would.

He said: "We came with a set of ideas."
