Kim summit vindicates Cold War doctrine of deterrence

The Korean Central News Agency and the Korean Central Television reported Monday that Kim departed from Pyongyang on Sunday morning via a Chinese chartered airplane to hold a summit with his us counterpart in Singapore.

Bruce Klingner, a North Korea expert at the conservative Heritage Foundation, said the denuclearization pledge in the Trump statement is "diluted from the six-party talks provision, and there was no mention of North Korea moving towards complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization, as the administration had hinted".

The joint statement signed by U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un stated: "The United States and the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified".

"China has not made any losses here", said Deng Yuwen, a political analyst based in Beijing.

Trump said he will send his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Seoul after the summit to explain the results and discuss cooperation between South Korea and the U.S.

His parents are good friends of mine, ' Trump told reporters and a global TV audience after his nuclear summit with North Korean despot Kim Jong-un.

Intelligence reports suggested Warmbier had been beaten so badly while in custody that there were fears he had died, a US intelligence official told The New York Times. Instead of months or years of low-level talks culminating in a landmark accord, Trump agreed to a face-to-face meeting with Kim at the outset, before either side had even agreed on a broad definition of denuclearization.

Chuck Schumer Rips Trump Amid Reported ZTE Deal
The decision amounted to a death sentence to ZTE, which relies on U.S. parts and which announced that it was halting operations. That was a serious problem for ZTE because the company is heavily dependent on USA components for its smartphone business.

"We had a historic meeting and chose to leave the past behind", said Kim afteward.

That suggested that any lasting benefit to Trump on the world stage or at home will depend on whether, in the next stages of negotiations, he can turn the summit's made-for-TV script into tangible progress toward Pyongyang's nuclear disarmament.

In an opinion piece in Chinese media, Chung In-moon, a special adviser to South Korean President Moon Jae-in on foreign affairs and national security, said that Beijing's role in the Korean peninsula peace process "will be larger in the future".

But Chung said that China would not be left out. It was brutal. A lot of people started to focus on what was going on, including North Korea'.

At the same time, he said complete denuclearization would take time. One possible lesson is Vietnam, a former Communist ally that has become one of the strongest opponents of China's assertiveness in the South China Sea.

"I think without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here". "This may seem far-fetched but it has happened with Vietnam".
