surprise summit

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in held a surprise summit Saturday at the truce village to discuss the on again off again now maybe on again June 12 summit.

Kim and Moon met just a few hours after South Korea expressed relief that the talks may possibly be saved. Moon has stated that the North Korean leader is willing to get rid of his nukes.

It remains unclear if Kim Jong un is serious about dismantling his nuclear capabilities. Moon has insisted Kim can be persuaded to abandon his nuclear facilities, materials and bombs in a verifiable and irreversible way in exchange for credible security and economic guarantees.

Moon, who brokered the summit between Washington and Pyongyang, likely used Saturday’s meeting to confirm Kim’s willingness to enter nuclear negotiations with Trump and clarify what steps Kim has in mind in the process of denuclearization, said Hong Min, a senior analyst at Seoul’s Korea Institute for National Unification.

“While Washington and Pyongyang have expressed their hopes for a summit through published statements, Moon has to step up as the mediator because the surest way to set the meeting in stone would be an official confirmation of intent between heads of states,” Hong said.

President Trump remains optimistic tweeting today “We are having very productive talks with North Korea about reinstating the Summit which, if it does happen, will likely remain in Singapore on the same date, June 12th, and, if necessary, will be extended beyond that date.”

The surprise summit may or may not be a good sign. It remains to be seen if Kim Jong midget can be trusted.
