I have talked with the administration and basically what we re looking at is they postponed it because they weren t ready, she said, and secretary Pompeo and the administration stand ready to talk. Pompeo was supposed to meet Kim Yong Chol in New York Thursday. Haley spoke ahead of Security Council closed consultations called by Russia to discuss exemptions from UN sanctions.
