Trump-North Korea meeting: US 'knows the risks', says spy chief


CIA director Mike Pompeo has defended President Donald Trump's decision to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, saying the president understands the risks.

President Trump "isn't doing this for theatre, he is going there to solve a problem," the spy chief told Fox News on Sunday.

The president has said the summit could produce the "greatest deal for the world".

But critics have warned that if the talks go poorly, the two nations will be in a worse position than before.
