Pompeo says he's staying, despite N. Korea demand

TEASER: Pompeo tells Pyongyang he's not going anywhere.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he's not going anywhere, despite calls from North Korea that he be excluded from future talks about it's nuclear program (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO, SAYING: "Nothing has changed.

We're continuing to work, negotiate.

Still in charge of the team.

President Trump, obviously, is in charge of the overall effort but it will be my team." North Korea's demand came hours after Pyongyang announced its first weapons test since talks with the US broke down.

It said the test was overseen by leader Kim Jong Un - and featured what it called a 'tactical guided weapon.'..the word "tactical" implying a short-range or conventional weapon, as opposed to the long-range ballistic missiles that have been seen as a threat to the U.S. KCNA, the North's official state media also called on the US to replace Pompeo with someone quote 'more careful and mature in communicating.'

Both the test and the Pompeo comment may be part of an overall strategy to ramp up pressure on Washington after Kim gave a year-end deadline for the U.S. to change its approach to talks.

Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan confirmed Thursday that the North conducted a test, but appeared to play down concerns.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ACTING U.S. SECRETARY OF DEFENSE PATRICK SHANAHAN, SAYING: "I'm not going to go into the detailed intelligence but the way I'd characterize it is it's not a ballistic missile, OK?

And then there's no change to our posture or to our operations." The U.S.-North Korea summit in February ended with no deal.

State media quoted a senior North Korean official, saying that failure was a lesson talks could go wrong - quote - 'whenever Pompeo pokes his nose in.'
