Trump's big news on Korea arrives in dark

Kim Jong-un is not inviting Donald Trump over to have some talks about negotiations about de nuking, as Trump says. "In all honesty, that came as a little bit of a surprise to us as well".

Experts say Pyongyang was driven to make overtures to the U.S. by the looming impact of ever-tightening sanctions on the North Korean economy and the oft-repeated warning of military action by the Trump administration.

"North Korea has said these things before - Kim Jong Il wanted to meet with President Clinton", said Mark Dubowitz, CEO of Washington's Foundation for Defense of Democracies think-tank.

The risks, according to Burns, lie in the North's history of violating their agreements - as they did under Presidents Clinton and Bush - and in their strengthened position in terms of nuclear capability.

That is quite a diplomatic agenda. I mean there are lists going around in the news today about all of the times that Donald Trump has personally insulted Kim Jong-un on Twitter. "He's evolving into a strategic thinker, into a man with an end game", said veteran U.S. politician and diplomat Bill Richardson.

For such a meeting to be successful, the USA will have to come to some agreement with North Korea on denuclearization.

The agency said it had continued to monitor the North's nuclear programme, including through the use of satellite imagery.

But this was the fruit of 14 years of preliminary - sometimes covert - diplomacy followed by 20 months of intense negotiations involving senior diplomats from Iran and six world powers.

It was the first time Southerners met with Kim; it brought about signs that Pyongyang might give up its nukes after all; and it revealed that the North Korean strongman has a sense of humor. But he stressed that China would continue to maintain sanctions on North Korea until a political settlement was reached. "If they are playing us, we should unleash maximum pressure", he said.

"Sending someone that important to the undeserving North Korea is a humiliation to Japan!" one official says. If Donald Trump does go over there and meet with him, he legitimizes their power and puts the U.S. in a very bad position.

In its initial comment on the incident, a police spokesperson said, "We treat hate crime extremely seriously". Words can not describe how sad this makes me feel, in this 2018 people think this is still acceptable.

But as last month's Winter Olympics drove a rapprochement on the peninsula, Pence traveled to South Korea, rubbing shoulders with Kim's sister, and appearing open to a meeting with North Korean officials - although it was the North Koreans and South Koreans who actually met. We could send Rex Tillerson. "We look forward to the denuclearization of North Korea".

If Trump or Tillerson had chose to consult serving United States experts on the situation before the decision to talk was made, it's not immediately clear who they would have spoken to.

Washington's contacts with Pyongyang are limited, but past year Yun successfully negotiated the return of a USA prisoner, college student Otto Warmbier, from a northern jail.

Yun's boss in the State Department Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs is respected China specialist Acting Assistant Secretary of State Susan Thornton.

Kim Jong Un has "committed to denuclearization" and to suspending nuclear and missile tests, South Korea's National Security Office head Chung Eui-yong told reporters at the White House on Thursday after briefing Trump.

"There is anxiety in USA capitals about the risk of attack from North Korea and Americans are getting more serious about a military response".

But the North already possesses rockets capable of reaching the USA mainland, and previous year detonated what it said was an H-bomb.

This was not to be, but he nevertheless had advice and a warning for the administration Friday in a column in the New York Times.
