Whatever are the reasons and whoever were the principle actors in the chain of recent events, the main thing is to have President Trump meet face-to-face with Kim Jong-un and come up with a solution that may include the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and save the world a nuclear war.
Chung told Trump that the North Korean leader was committed to denuclearization and that he was ready to meet "as soon as possible". But it is still sticking to its principles of preferring a negotiated resolution to economic sanctions or military action.
"This potential meeting has been agreed to, there are no additional conditions being stipulated, but, again they - they cannot engage in missile testing, they cannot engage in nuclear testing and they can't publicly object to the U.S".
"He's made a big give to the North Koreans by saying, 'I'm going to legitimize you". Kim has pushed his isolated nation closer to having a nuclear-tipped missile that can strike the US mainland.
Swedish media reports that Leven highlighted the role of Sweden, which she played in relations between the USA and the DPRK informed. "We believe that neither of the preconditions could be satisfied without China's active involvement and support", the commentary said.
It was during this meeting that Kim announced Pyongyang would halt nuclear and missile tests while attempting to extend an olive branch to the Trump administration. With Trump's brash nature and lack-of-tact, this may be Kim's ideal opportunity to achieve this, since Trump would love anything that seems like a win (and really, this would be a major win for the Trump administration if he were to achieve this). For instance, United Nations special rapporteur on human rights for North Korea Ojea Quintana said on Monday that Pyongyang should "consolidate" its diplomatic rapprochement with South Korea and the world community by creating a "parallel opening to human rights review".
"We've played this game for decades", Maginnis complains. "Furthermore, we truly hope that the two sides will build trust with each other without threat of invasion and that this might become an opportunity to conclude a peace treaty that guarantees mutual peaceful coexistence".
