In the article of CNN: Pompeo is under the gun, there is a sentence: but (Pompeo) knows he must return
from his third trip to North Korea in as many months with concrete plans for a path forward, sources tell CNN

Question) Would you please paraphrase the bold part?
Does it mean that he must return to North Korea a few months after he visited last time?

Thank you.

    he must return from his third (3rd) trip to North Korea in as many (= 3) months

    He has made three trips in (= within/during the period of) three months.
