Kim Jong Un Wants a Peace Treaty With Donald Trump

Kim Jong Un Wants a Peace Treaty With Donald Trump

South Korea's National Security Office chief Chung Eui Yong, who led the delegation to Pyongyang and traveled to Washington with Suh, visited China on Monday to brief President Xi Jinping and other senior officials about the South Korean envoys' meeting with Kim. Trump's announcement has raised speculation about whether the meeting will actually go ahead, what North Korea will demand from the US and even where the two leaders might meet.

Central Illinois Congressman Rodney Davis is not convinced President Trump should meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. However, both the USA and Japan are sceptical, remembering past instances where North Korea has used potential diplomatic resolution to relieve pressure on the regime.

"They have made some major promises".

"I am delighted that South Korea's efforts have made great progress in the overall Korean Peninsula situation and that close dialogue between NK and the USA has been achieved".

What does North Korea want? But he says the US does expect to hear directly from Pyongyang.

Choi Kang, vice president of the Asan Institute for Policy Studies, floated the possibility of Sydney Seiler, a former U.S. special envoy for the six-party talks. Mr Pompeo said United States military exercises in the region would continue in the lead-up to the talks.

Some say that to deal successfully with North Korea and deliver a clear message, Trump needs to show a greater grasp of detail and a more even temperament than he's demonstrated to date. Sustaining maximum pressure on North Korea through sanctions, which was likely a factor in Kim's outreach to Seoul and his offer to meet with Trump, will require continued Chinese cooperation. The State Department's top diplomat in charge of North Korea policy, Joseph Yun, recently retired. He had met earlier with the North Korean leader in Pyongyang. The US position remains that it wants North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons programme in exchange for aid and diplomatic incentives. "The United States has made zero concessions but North Korea has made some promises".

Chung also told Xi that China's stance that the North Korean nuclear crisis must be resolved primarily between the North and the United States contributed greatly to arranging the Kim-Trump summit.

As far as is publicly known, Kim has not left North Korea since he came to power in 2011, meaning any trip outside the country might be problematic. Ahead of Trump's decision to accept Kim's offer of talks, Pyongyang agreed to pause its nuclear and missile testing, but made no commitment to halt its research and development on ballistic missiles - which is hard, if not impossible, for the Americans to trace.

Many people were shocked last week by news of the planned talks between the leaders of the United States and North Korea.
