U.S. to offer ‘unique’ guarantees to North Korea

Share

When President Trump and Kim Jong Un meet, it will be the result of strenuous diplomacy by officials from the U.S., North Korea and other countries.

Trump and Kim are expected to discuss North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles programs, but the president has cautioned that the summit is meant to mark the beginning of a dialogue between the two countries rather than the conclusion of negotiations.

From there, according to the White House, the meeting will expand to include Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Adviser John Bolton. In the summit in April, the first time one of the ruling North Korean leaders crossed over to South since fighting in the Korean War stopped in 1953, saw both the leaders lay the roadmap for a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula and permanent peace.

The article said that Kim was accompanied by his sister Kim Yo Jong, first vice department director of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), vice-chairman of the WPK Central Committee Ri Su Yong, and others. If North Koreans had seen Kim's efforts at Ryomyong Street in Pyongyang as an impressive bout of modernization under byungjin, then Singapore arguably sets in place an objective for North Korea's eventual economic betterment under the "new strategic line". Their hope is that Trump and Kim can agree to a plan that allows North Korea to denuclearize in return for normalized ties with the US. "I just think it's going to work out very nicely", he said Monday.

Various administration Twitter feeds posted footage of Trump departing his hotel and heading to the summit with Kim on Singapore's Sentosa Island.

Director Patty Jenkins also tweeted the photo on Wednesday with the caption, "Welcome to WONDER WOMAN 1984 , Steve Trevor! ". Rebecca Roven Oakley , Richard Suckle , Wesley Coller , Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada are the executive producers.

Beyond the impact on both leaders' political fortunes, the summit could shape the fate of countless people - the citizens of impoverished North Korea, the tens of millions living in the shadow of the North's nuclear threat, and millions more worldwide.

"We're not going to go in and sign something on June 12th and we never were", Trump told White House reporters on June 1.

Trump and Kim - both intent on making history - greeted each other early in the day with extended hands in front of a row of United States and North Korean flags, a previously unthinkable sight that reflects a new chapter in the two countries' acrimonious relationship.

Pompeo said "any suggestion that the United States somehow lacks the technical expertise across government, or lacks it on the ground here in Singapore, is mistaken". He traveled to Pyongyang twice this year, once as Central Intelligence Agency director and soon after he was confirmed as secretary of state, both times meeting with Kim. Two of America's close partners - Japan and South Korea - have assured the USA of help in the economic reconstruction of North Korea if everything goes well in Singapore.

North Korea has long rejected unilateral nuclear disarmament, instead referring to the denuclearization of the peninsula. Most important, few believe Kim is actually willing to give up the nuclear weapons that cement his grip on power.

If the summit does lead to a lasting detente, it could fundamentally change the security landscape of Northeast Asia, just as former U.S. President Richard Nixon's visit to China in 1972 led to the transformation of China.

Opting against an early night's sleep before the summit on Tuesday morning, the 34-year-old dictator toured Singapore's nightlife on Monday evening.
