Prof John Stremlau on the Trump-Kim Summit


As Gizmodo reports, during the 40-minute one-on-one meeting between Trump and Kim Jong-un, the USA president showed his counterpart the movie trailer on his iPad.

The deal Trump made with North Korea could end up fundamentally changing the state of relations between the USA and North Korea, but many critics point out that it lacks a specific outline for how Pyongyang will denuclearize.

Speaking in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos after a sit-down with Kim, Trump said you could see "the fervor" felt by people in North Korea for Kim. "Old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles on our way forward".

It's an appalling reality, but that's the world we live in so I suppose we need to show gratitude when two leaders are willing to agree not to annihilate each other's populations #ThankyouforNotNukingUs. The bulk of the agreement consists of four sections, the first of them shows the commitment of the two countries to establish new relationships.

The official also said there had been discussions between North Korea and the United States before Tuesday's summit about completing an "early" denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

Mr Trump announced he would halt "very provocative" and expensive regular military exercises that the USA holds with South Korea.

USA forces in South Korea said it has "received no updated guidance on the execution or cessation of training exercises" and will continue to coordinate with South Korean partners and maintain the current posture until it receives an updated guidance from the Department of Defense or the Indo-Pacific Command. He pointed out that the Trump-Kim agreement does not define what denuclearization would mean.

(Doubts among allies about US reliability will be harder to fix.) Given how quickly the summit was thrown together, no one should have expected a credible, comprehensive deal.

"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country, " Trump said Tuesday. "I just want them to talk".

After the delegation-level meeting, Trump joined Kim for a working lunch which had a mix of Western and Asian dishes, such as Korean stuffed cucumber and beef short rib confit with some Haagen-Dazs ice cream to top things off.

The two leaders then took a post-lunch stroll in the courtyard of the hotel. That was on the table at the beginning, and you see a total denuclearization of North Korea - so important.
