Trump announces meeting with Kim Jong Un to be held in Vietnam
U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun is still in Pyongyang in marathon talks with North Korean officials ahead of the second U.S.
The Yomiuri ShimbunWill the United States and North Korea be able to bridge differences in their respective standpoints over the North's denuclearization this time around?
While in the US view North Korea has yet to take concrete steps to give up its nuclear weapons, Pyongyang complains that Washington has done little to reciprocate for its freezing of nuclear and missile testing and dismantling of some facilities. Some experts say North Korea is trying to use the negotiations to weaken the sanctions and buy time to flawless its weapons program. He said Washington was willing to discuss "many actions" to improve ties and entice Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons and that Trump was ready to end the 1950-53 Korean War, which concluded with an armistice, not a peace treaty.
A year of mostly fruitless diplomacy has led to serious doubts about Mr. Kim's sincerity and Trump's ability to force North Korea to significantly reduce the threat its nuclear weapons pose to the region and world.
Yonhap noted a delay in reporting from North Korean media is not unusual - news of U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo meeting with Kim Jong-un in October was not reported until a day after it occurred, and North Korean envoy Kim Yong-chol's latest visit to Washington was not discussed until he returned to Pyongyang and delivered a briefing to Kim Jong-un.
DPRK is the acronym of North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
South Korea's government appears confident the second Trump-Kim summit will proceed on schedule and will produce more concrete results than the first meeting.
"In Singapore, Trump and Kim were chased by time and they couldn't even get to the main subject", said Mr. Koh, who is also a policy adviser to Moon.
