WASHINGTON: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has urged North Korea to follow the example of Vietnam to normal relations with Washington and to prosperity.

Speaking to business executives in the Vietnamese capital Hanoi, Pompeo said but for that to happen, its leader Kim Jong Un needed to seize the moment. Pompeo expressed hope that United States could one day share the same level of partnership with North Korea as it did with Vietnam , a long-time former enemy.

His comments followed two days of talks in Pyongyang persuading Kim to give up nuclear weapons, which prompted North Korean accusations he had used gangster-like diplomacy.
