As part of his delegation to Pyongyang, Pompeo brought along Stephen Biegun, his special representative to North Korea and the diplomat expected to take on more of the day-to-day negotiating with Kim's regime.
Meanwhile, South Korea's foreign minister said Wednesday that Seoul is considering lifting sanctions imposed on North Korea in 2010 following a deadly attack on a warship that killed 45 South Korean sailors.
The North has insisted that sanctions should be lifted before any progress in nuclear talks.
But increasingly North Korean ships have been spotted at foreign harbours, which the United Nations sanctions forbid.
As for Japan's motive for hosting the planned summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the daily said Japan is likely seeking to avoid being kept from being involved in intensifying dialogue regarding the Korean Peninsula.
Seoul's potential removal of unilateral sanctions would be a largely symbolic move as it's virtually impossible for South Korea to resume joint economic projects with North Korea under US-led worldwide sanctions, which have been strengthened considerably since 2016 as the North accelerated its nuclear and missile tests. U.S. secretary of state Michael Pompeo came away from meetings Sunday in North Korea without a date for another meeting or news on when key denuclearization milestones might take place.
He cited Kim's invitation to have inspectors visit the already dismantled Punggye-ri test facility, the site of all six of the regime's nuclear blasts.

He said the resumption of water supply does not violate sanctions. China and Russian Federation have reportedly increased trade with the country since the summit, and now South Korea has started providing more aid and discussing removing sanctions. "This has nothing to do with restarting the Kaesong factory park".
Other moves by the Koreas to reduce tensions between them include temporary reunions between war-separated relatives and military agreements that called for reducing weaponry and guards at the border and demining sections of the Demilitarized Zone.
