North Korea’s Nuclear Talks May Come to The Table Again

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Leader Kim Jong Un might sit down and discuss nuclear agreements for third time, as both leaders showed tendency to negotiate.

North Korea’s Stance

Chairman Kim’s comments were diplomatic yet restricted. The notorious leader is open to talks only if Washington proposes mutually agreed accord that satisfies his plans.

Speaking at North Korea’s Parliament, Kim noted that his Hanoi-Summit with no deal as Washington’s focus was on “unilateral” disarmament. Though, Kim that his relation with Mr. Trump is good and voiced inclination for a third summit.

North Korea’s KCNA news-agency reported Kim’s remark few hours after Mr. Trump met with South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in, concluding with a goal to resume talks with Mr. Kim.

What Kim thinks of his southern neighbor’s mediation?

“The South should not act as an ‘overstepping mediator’ or a ‘facilitator’ and should rather get its mind straight as a member of the (Korean) nation and boldly speak up for the interest of the nation,” the Associated Press (AP) quoted Chairman Kim.

President Trump’s Remarks

Mr. Trump welcomed his friend’s talking and said he is also ready for a new “soon” summit, writing on twitter that their “personal relationship is very good.”

Trump further hailed North Korea’s “economic success”

Opposite Directions

When it comes to nuclear parlays, America and North Korea are not on the same page. Each side has a philosophy that is quite unacceptable to the other.

“We of course place importance on resolving problems through dialogue and negotiations. But U.S.-style dialogue of unilaterally pushing its demands doesn’t fit us, and we have no interest in it,” Kim during his Saturday speech.

Bilateral nuclear disarming is what Mr. Kim seeks, yet Washington has not shown any fettle to diminish its arsenal.

On the other side, America stated that the Hanoi summit collapsed as the North hardly assured to fully disarm the peninsula.
