South Korea's Moon calls Trump-Kim summit end of hostility

The article forecast the North's Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui could be U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun's counterpart.

Moon, a liberal who took office in 2017, has lobbied hard to set up diplomacy between Trump and Kim to help find a peaceful settlement of the North Korean nuclear crisis.

The two Koreas have occasionally traded exchanges of gunfire there, though animosities have eased since North Korea entered talks on its nuclear program.

The US hardman became the first sitting US President to cross the infamous DMZ - dividing North and South Korea - as he attempts, once again, to get Pyongyang tyrant Kim Jong-un to the negotiating table.

"I was proud to step over the line", Trump told Kim later, inside the Freedom House on the South Korea side, according to the Associated Press. "A lot of people in the United States don't know that in 1953 the Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty, and that means that the United States is, technically, still at war with North Korea".

Scotch whisky latest target of USA tariffs
A spokesman for the Scotch Whisky Association urged governments and the European Union to act swiftly to resolve the crisis. Lighthizer's office is seeking public comment and will hold a public hearing on the proposed additional tariffs August 5.

North Korea's state media described Kim's meeting with Mr Trump as "an wonderful event" and that both leaders expressed great satisfaction over the result of their talks.

US and North Korean officials are expected to sit down for working-level talks in coming weeks to hammer out the terms of a mutually acceptable deal, but many experts say it remains unclear whether the negotiations would successfully address the fundamental differences between Washington and Pyongyang that were exposed in the second Kim-Trump summit in Vietnam in February. "The venue can be neither Washington, DC nor Pyongyang". Some 28,500 American troops are stationed in the South.

"Can we reach a compromise where we back off of saying no sanctions relief and North Korea does something significant on denuclearization and missiles?" he asked.

With US officials and mainstream outlets holding quite different approaches and attitudes toward the peninsula's reconciliation efforts, it remains to be seen whether these showings of unity are the seeds of lasting peace or if they will disappear as quickly as they are being made.

However, Lee said that "rather than using his cards in a row", Trump may hold a summit "in late January before beginning the campaign for the presidential election in November next year".
