It’s probably unrealistic for Trump and Kim to agree on all aspects of denuclearisation at their first meeting.
Kim Jong-un’s historic meeting with South Korea’s President, Moon Jae-in earlier this year has set the tone for a more open and engaged North Korea to come to the fore.
The statement from Pyongyang appeared designed to get the summit with Kim back on track after Trump canceled their planned Singapore meeting, citing “tremendous anger and open hostility” in recent statements from North Korea.
The US supports the Royal Thai Armed Forces’ leadership role in Southeast Asia, including its role in peacekeeping missions, maritime security operations, as well as humanitarian assistance/disaster relief efforts.
Trump may either pull off the biggest peace-making deal in modern history, worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize or he has truly underestimated the size of the task at hand.
