US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday he had phone talks with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha on the outcome of a historic Singapore summit with North Korea.

He also spoke with his Japanese counterpart Taro Kono over the phone.

In a Twitter message posted shortly after the meeting between President Donald Trump and the North's leader Kim Jong-un, the secretary said he "just spoke with FM Kono & FM Kang to provide a brief readout of today's meeting btw @POTUS & Chairman Kim at #singaporesummit."
