Can the 'dealmaker' president deliver on North Korea?

U.S. President Donald Trump delivers remarks during the Prison Reform Summit at the White House in Washington

Moon's White House visit was originally arranged as a meeting to fine-tune a joint strategy for dealing with Kim but has instead become more of a crisis session after Pyongyang last week threatened to pull out of the planned summit in Singapore. But that self-congratulation could come back to haunt him. All in all, the North intends to strengthen its negotiating position ahead of the US-NK summit set for June 12 in Singapore. Within years, Gadhafi was overthrown and killed by rebels backed by Washington.

Earlier this month, with only weeks until the historic summit, North Korea flipped on the US and South Korea, blasting them both with a series of complaints that seemed like a tantrum.

"The Trump administration is not a big believer in foreign aid, so why are they going to be all of a sudden generous toward North Korea when they're not generous toward much nicer people in developing countries in Africa and South Asia and elsewhere?" "The President remains open to a summit taking place, and will continue to pursue that path even while we stand strong on the objective of denuclearization and the extreme pressure campaign that's underway today".

Trump has so far stayed the course with the summit, which would represent a major part of his foreign-policy accomplishments as president.

He said: "North Korea is actually talking to us about times and everything else as though nothing happened".

Stony faced, US President Donald Trump stares down a smiling Kim Jong-un in a high-stakes scene, unfolding entirely on the surface of a coin. If not, the North would face what Trump called "total decimation".


Robert Kelly, a Korea specialist and professor at Pusan National University in South Korea, acknowledges Moon's hard diplomatic dance. Perhaps he even had dreams of making Jared Kushner viceroy of North Korea, while Ivanka started up a new clothing factory with a fresh source of cut-rate labor.

Klaas said: "Kim Jong-un has continued his family's longstanding goal of acquiring nuclear weapons as a trump card to stop military action against their dynastic regime", he told HuffPost UK. "If Trump were less vain and had allowed his national security staff to vet the NK offer, he might have learned this". A year ago in April, India had banned all trade with North Korea, except for food and medicines, in line with the United Nations sanctions provisions.

South Korea has reasons to push for diplomacy with North Korea, not least of which is that its citizens would be likely to bear the brunt of the suffering and death if war broke out.

"What we are seeing is an increase in targeting of North Korean researchers and defectors, malicious emails pretending to come from the South Koreans", he told CNN.

During talks with Trump, Moon is expected to discuss what to expect and what not to expect from Kim based on his own encounter with the North Korean leader in April, officials from Seoul's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said.

Engaging with UN human rights mechanisms, including the upcoming UN Universal Periodic Review and a review under the Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, while responding seriously to recommendations for compliance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, both of which North Korea has ratified. It's unclear what will happen to them now that the White House National Security Council has eliminated the role of cyber coordinator under national security adviser John Bolton.
