"We urge the U.S.to stop such misguided activities", Wang told Pompeo at the start of a meeting, citing the "escalation" of trade friction, actions towards Taiwan and "criticizing China's internal and external policies".

"These actions have damaged our mutual trust, cast a shadow over China-U.S. relations, and are completely out of line with the interests of our two peoples", Wang told his visiting American counterpart.

Those disagreements - a burgeoning trade war, China's territorial claims in the South China Sea and USA policy toward Taiwan - are unlikely to be resolved any time soon.

Pompeo, who was briefing Wang following his visit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, said, "The issues that you characterized we have a fundamental disagreement".

In 2016, Cato Institute senior fellow Doug Bandow wrote in Forbes that North Korea is "the globe's number one religious persecutor".

"While there is still a long way to go and much work to do, we can now see a path to where we'll achieve the ultimate goal which is the full and final verified denuclearization of North Korea", Pompeo told reporters at the White House. The Vatican insisted at the time that a papal visit would only be possible if Catholic priests were accepted in North Korea.

After Seoul, Pompeo ends his trip Monday in China, North Korea's political and economic lifeline. Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported that Kim had "warmly welcomed" Pompeo in Pyongyang and "spoke highly of him". A second summit in the coming weeks could boost Trump ahead of US midterm elections in November, but a failure to secure any measurable commitments would undercut what the president has seen so far as a clear foreign policy strength. It said on Monday Kim lauded his talks with Pompeo and "explained in detail the proposals for solving the denuclearisation issue".

Amy Schumer, Emily Ratajkowski Arrested in Kavanaugh Protest
The two famous ladies weren't the only ones to be arrested, they were among 300 other protestors who also got detained. Kavanaugh, for his part, flatly denies the allegation, and he has the backing of Trump and dozens of GOP senators.

Chief Justice John Roberts administered the constitutional oath and retired Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the judicial one. Kavanaugh's confirmation is even more of a triumph for the administration considering the obstacles he overcame to be confirmed.

"I'd love to remove them, but we have to get something for doing it", Trump said. "I thought we had a good, productive conversation, and as President Trump has said, there are many steps along the way, and we took one of them today, another step forward".

Pompeo said there was agreement that Kim and President Donald Trump would hold their second summit as soon as possible, but plans for a sequel to their June meeting in Singapore already were in the works.

"I support the courageous decisions of the North and South Korean leaders", the pope said following the first summit in Panmunjom in April.

Earlier, while still in Seoul, Pompeo said that both Trump and Kim believed "substantive progress" can be made at a second summit meeting, adding that arrangements for the leaders to meet are close to being finalized.

Pompeo also said ties between Japan and the United States were strong and the two countries were in a position to make progress on trade talks. On the plane ride back to Rome, he expressed hope that the divisions would be overcome, saying "the two Koreas are brothers, they speak the same language".

Moon also said there was a possibility of Kim holding a summit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
