The President Believes That The North Korean Leader Wants To Help His People But Says He Isn’t Cutting Him Any Slack
We are all entering a historic event with the upcoming summit between the United States and North Korea. Never before has a leader met with the North Korean dictator with talks of peace and complete denuclearization.
However, President Trump isn’t going in unprepared and has made it clear that this isn’t the same administration that made the failed Iran deal. Trump sends ahead of his arrival a promise to talk of peace with a reminder that he will not accept anything less than complete denuclearization of the starved Nation.
According to CNBC, Trump says he’s confident “something positive will happen” at the summit. An official deal between the countries is largely unexpected.
“I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people, and he has that opportunity,” Trump said. “And it’s never going to be there again.”
As Written By The Washington Post:
South Korea has been cautious not to set clear expectations for the planned June 12 summit in Singapore between Trump and Kim. There are too many potential pitfalls, chiefly how far the North is willing to make concessions over its nuclear program in exchange for a possible easing of economic sanctions and other incentives from the United States and its allies, such as South Korea.
Moon has staked his political credibility on being a key broker between Kim and the Trump administration. After Trump said May 24 that he was canceling the summit, the South Korean president’s outreach included a hastily arranged face-to-face meeting with Kim.
In the past few days, envoys from both sides of the divided peninsula have agreed to goodwill gestures. Military talks are planned for June 14 in the truce village of Panmunjom, and discussions on holding reunions for families separated by the Korean War more than 60 years ago are set for June 22 in the North’s Mount Kumgang resort.
