Trump-Kim Redux: Another photo op or something more substantive?

4 1 1

Remarkably, a second summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong-un has been scheduled for end of this month in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi. The date and venue of the meeting was announced by Trump himself who has gone from mocking the North Korean leader as ‘rocket man’ to describing him as a very capable leader who can transform his country. But what has experts puzzled is that the change in Trump’s position is hardly justified by movement on the ground. North Korea appears to have done nothing to satisfy the US’s desire for denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula. Sure, it has announced a moratorium on testing missiles and nuclear devices. But only after achieved credible nuclear-cum-ballistic missile deterrence.
