Trump-Kim meeting 'a step in the right direction — Russia

Trump-Kim meeting 'a step in the right direction — Russia

The announcement means North Korea will suspend all missile tests in the weeks leading up to the planned May summit and mitigates financial risks that have been typically associated with the Korean Peninsula.

"The Chinese have come in for some criticism from North Korea on their willingness to impose sanctions". As has been repeatedly noted by the MSM, this face-to-face meeting would be a first for a sitting U.S. president.

Call it vintage Donald Trump - and a diplomatic gambit for the ages.

So, what can we expect?

The US has expressed surprise at the "dramatic" shift in stance by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un that has seen President Donald Trump agree to talks.

Also bullish for oil prices, Libya's 70,000 barrels per day El Feel oilfield stayed shut despite the Petroleum Facilities Guard saying it had reached a deal to reopen it, according to a field engineer and local mediator.

Seoul would not be a choice for the North, nor the city of Washington.

Not many saw this one coming.

.

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha says South Korea will make sure if the summit does take place, "it's a meaningful meeting with good outcome".

After months of trading insults and threats of nuclear annihilation, President Donald Trump agreed to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jung Un by May to negotiate an end to Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program, South Korean and U.S. officials said Thursday.

Politicians and experts around the world have been surprised by the pair's decision to meet.

When will the meeting happen?

.

It "will not lead to North Korea's denuclearization".

President Trump had previously said he wanted to see "credible moves" towards denuclearization by Pyongyang before talks could even begin.

"They've staked a lot of their reputation on solving the North Korea problem", Mount said.

Weirdly enough, the invitation from Kim to Trump was in a handwritten letter that Chung delivered early on yesterday.

"We're not going to have this meeting take place until we see concrete actions that match the words and the rhetoric of North Korea", she told reporters.

What do the South Koreans think?

Mr Trump said the development was "great progress".

Trump tweeted today: "Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearisation with the South Korean representatives, not just a freeze".

For his part, Xi urged the two leaders to begin talks as "soon as possible" and praised Trump's "positive aspiration".

Formerly a human rights lawyer, Moon's stand on dialogue, disarmament and peace is in stark contrast to that of the previous conservative government.

Trump has derided Kim as a "maniac", referred to him as "little rocket man".

"It's certainly the start of talks. Let's test that. Let's see if we can use [Kim's] own momentum, like ju-jitsu, to help accomplish what we want". That could explain why there are a handful of lawmakers who are already leaning against these talks. And he had some advice for Kim, too. But the official said that years of experience "going back to 1992" have evidenced the failure of direct low-level talks.

How did the markets react to the announcement of the meeting?

.

Has anything like this happened before?
"Need to keep up pressure alongside engagement". "He didn't, and he got a US state visit".
