Korea talks moving quickly, Trump to leave early

Russell Knight | 11 June, 2018, 21:55

In fact, only hours before the White House announcement, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had seemed to lower expectations for the meeting, which Trump had earlier predicted could potentially yield an on-the-spot deal to end the Korean War.

Even if Kim offers only "a fine-sounding rhetorical commitment, and maybe a few missile surrendered or some site closures", he said, Trump will "market this thing as something extraordinary for his voters back home".

The first came early in the day, showing a glimpse of his morning briefing with Ambassador Sung Kim, the South Korean-born American diplomat who is the U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines.

Differing reports stated that Kim was on an Air China aircraft, not a private jet.

The sudden change in schedule added to a dizzying few days of foreign policy activity for Trump, who shocked US allies over the weekend when he used a meeting of the Group of Seven industrialized economies in Canada to alienate America's closest friends in the West. Lashing out over trade practices, Trump lobbed insults at his G-7 host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

If Kim makes such a change, he said, "President Trump is prepared to assure that there's going to be a successful transition".

Since his election as president in November 2018, several media houses have been vehement critics of the U.S. president and his policies-unswayed by his constant "FAKE NEWS" attacks-and they made no exception with their comments on the Trump-Kim meeting.

The move was in reaction to North Korea's criticism of USA vice president Mike Pence's statement that the country could meet the same fate as Libya if it failed to meet a nuclear deal with the US.

Some observers insist that it's the beginning of the complete denuclearisation of North Korea.

The first meeting between the two leaders is scheduled for Tuesday at 9 a.m. Singapore time - Monday at 9 p.m.

More recently, Trump has suggested he will raise human rights issues with Kim.

Trump expressed optimism about Tuesday's meeting during a working lunch with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and aides to both leaders.

"I bet the North will not abandon nuclear weapons", he said, adding that the United States and its allies should use both "carrots and sticks" to force the North to do so.

The meeting between Kim and Trump will mark a turnaround of relations between the two leaders after a long-running exchange of furious threats and insults.

Cheering crowds greeted Kim during his stroll, and cameras from North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency documented his every move.

The White House said Trump would hold a one-on-one meeting with Kim on Tuesday on the small island of Sentosa.

The guards must be about the same height as Kim, BBC said.

The president who once described Kim as "Little Rocket Man" and threatened to destroy his country if it did not give up nukes, has not said what might happen if the summit goes the wrong way.

Citizens are traditionally told - pretty much from birth - that the United States and former colonial power Japan are the great enemies of the people of the Korean peninsula. "And he has that opportunity, and he won't have that opportunity again".
