The President has enough pots boiling on the stove right now that it’s easy to lose track of them, but the situation in North Korea is still simmering away and requires some sort of eventual resolution. The next phase in this tricky diplomacy play still appears to be the pending summit between Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. The expected event came one step closer to becoming a reality following a meeting in Vietnam between officials from our two nations and Kim’s trip to China this week.
Kim’s most recent comments on the negotiations seemed to indicate that he wasn’t planning on any denuclearization progress in the near future, making these negotiations appear rather pointless. But now, after the meeting in Beijing, Kim appears to be singing a different tune. (Associated Press)
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has reportedly told the leader of his only major ally, China, that he wants to “achieve results” on the nuclear standoff on the Korean Peninsula in a second summit with President Donald Trump.
The comments, contained in reports Thursday from Chinese and North Korean state media, came a day after Kim left Beijing on his special armored train for Pyongyang after a two-day visit to the Chinese capital.
Kim’s trip to China — his fourth in the past 10 months — is believed to be an effort to coordinate with Beijing ahead of a possible second summit with Trump. It comes after U.S. and North Korean officials are thought to have met in Vietnam to discuss the site of the summit.
