Trump also approved a weapons sale to Taiwan, the self-ruled island the Communist mainland claims as its own territory, and sanctioned a Chinese company and its leader over an arms purchase from Russian Federation.
Meeting at the Diaoyutai Guest House, Wang told Pompeo that the United States has "stepped up rhetoric over trade tensions" after a raft of tit-for-tat tariffs on billion of dollars in USA and Chinese goods.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeosaid on Monday North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was ready to allow worldwide inspectors into the North's nuclear and missile testing sites, one of the main sticking points over an earlier denuclearization pledge.
After spending about five hours in Beijing, Pompeo headed for the airport to return to Washington.
"We have to see whether North Korea will let inspectors sample the soil at the Punggye-ri site for detailed analysis, or simply confirm that the site explosion was real". Kim's regime has said it wants to focus on more than just its nuclear program, and that it expects the U.S.to show some flexibility with its demands.
"China is committed to developing a good relationship with the US".
"The trade war's impact on the economy is showing", Xu Hongcai, the deputy chief economist at the China Center for International Economic Exchanges, a Beijing think tank, said.
"Kim Jong Un expressed satisfaction over the productive and wonderful talks with Mike Pompeo at which mutual stands were fully understood and opinions exchanged", KCNA said.
Pompeo held talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, before landing in Seoul on a whirlwind diplomatic visit to the region.
Pompeo even invoked the cancellation of a meeting between US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and his Chinese counterpart, which was supposed to take place in Beijing this month.
"Progress made on Singapore Summit Agreements! And this letter was further evidence of progress in that relationship".
Responding to Wang's remarks on Monday, Pompeo said: "The issues that you characterised, we have fundamental disagreements".
The announcement Sunday came shortly after Pompeo arrived in Seoul, following his fourth visit to North Korea, where he met with Kim. A series of diplomatic understandings on Taiwan - in which the Communist Party tolerates American weapons sales while the USA accepts Beijing as the capital of "one China" - underpin more than four decades of relations between the two sides.
Following Pompeo's latest trip to the Korean Peninsula, Trump and Kim are "close" to finalizing details for a second summit.
The official firstly made it clear that Pompeo's preferred translator was not welcome at the talks, according to Bloomberg citing a pool reporter traveling with Pompeo. He pledged the Trump administration would coordinate and unify its strategy for denuclearisation with its allies.
"In addition, the possibility of a North Korea-Japan summit is open".
"North Korea took some steps towards denuclearisation and the United States will face criticism from the worldwide community if it continues to demand complete denuclearisation without any lifting of sanctions", said Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul.
Interested in North Korea?
Wang expressed his hope that Pompeo's Beijing visit would play a positive role in supporting healthy bilateral ties.
Rising tensions have fueled concern in Beijing and Washington that the president's trade fight could, if left unchecked, foster a new Cold War between the two countries. "That is a necessary component of getting to the best deliverable".
Pompeo said this could happen "as soon as we get it logistically worked out", adding: "Chairman Kim said he's ready to allow them to come in".
The U.S. and North Korea agreed to have working-level groups to intensify discussions on delivering Trump and Kim's commitments from their Singapore summit, when the two sides promised to work toward denuclearization and improve relations. It has not taken any steps to halt nuclear weapons or missile development.
Pompeo said in Tokyo that it was important to hear from the Japanese leader "so we have a fully coordinated and unified view". Neither the US nor the North Korean side released an immediate detailed readout on the content of Pompeo's talks with Kim.
