Central Intelligence Agency Director Mike Pompeo met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over Easter weekend, according to media reports Tuesday.

Trump confirmed the reports in a tweet Wednesday morning.

Pompeo reportedly made the secret visit to North Korea to prepare for direct talks between U.S. President Donald Trump and Kim, who plan to discuss Pyongyang’s nuclear program. News of the meeting comes just days after the CIA chief told senators he was encouraged that such talks would be productive.

Trump has nominated Pompeo to become the next U.S. secretary of state. “I’m optimistic that the United States government can set the conditions for that appropriately,” Pompeo told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee during his confirmation hearing last week, noting that such talks could achieve an outcome “America and the world so desperately need.”
