USA demands 'concrete actions' before summit with N. Korea
10 March, 2018, 01:27 | Author: Genevieve Gibbs
The two countries haven't had significant, high-level talks in years and, as White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders emphasized, a meeting between the two leaders themselves could be the fastest way to turn around what has become an increasingly unsafe impasse. U.S. officials said that no time or place had been agreed.
Many say the jury is out on whether the meeting is a good idea though it has positive prospects.
But the state of Donald Trump's readiness for such a historic encounter is causing anxiety attacks in the Washington foreign policy establishment.
Geng told reporters at a regularly scheduled press briefing that China hope that all parties "will continue to strive for the political resolution and lasting peace and stability on the peninsula".
Apparently President Trump's commitment to meet with Kim Jong Un was to be taking seriously, not literally. North Korea has long protested the military maneuvers south of the divided Korean Peninsula as a rehearsal for invading the North.

The White House said Trump had agreed to the encounter.
"If Trump goes at all, and expects to announce a denuclearized North Korea, he will leave disappointed and maybe angry enough to believe that talks are useless and only military options are left", Narang warned.
Is this North Korea invite/acceptance going to be the foreign-policy equivalent of Trump's immigration summit at the White House in January? In the West Wing, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster is rumored to be on his way out.
But Suzanne DiMaggio, who helped facilitate the first official discussions between the Trump administration and North Korean government representatives in Oslo previous year, said she is concerned the apparent lack of lower-level groundwork that usually paves the way for summits could cause big problems.
South Korea's national security made a surprise announcement from the White House Thursday night saying Mr. Trump has agreed to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, and Kim is "committed" to denuclearization.
"Let's be clear, the United States has made zero concessions, but North Korea has made some promises". Then the cameras turned off, he went back to his office, and Stephen Miller and John Kelly started lobbying him. "That's the point", says Wit.
"Thornton has been very involved in this process since the beginning, and has traveled to the region several times", Goldstein said. He needs to stop North Korea from perfecting an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting the U.S. And making progress on denuclearizing the North, an area where past administrations had failed, would provide a major boost. We may see the same thing play out here with the North Korea.
"Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze", he tweeted. They have created the conditions for him to be treated by an American president as an equal rather than as an awkward pariah.
CNN's Erin Burnett said Thursday that if President Trump can solve the USA problem with North Korea, he "would be going down as a great president". The change was "a decision the President took himself", Tillerson explained, according to CNN.
Trump's approach to North Korea has wavered between bellicose rhetoric and expressions of openness to diplomacy - with the President saying one day that the U.S. would rain "fire and fury" on North Korea and then saying he would consider speaking directly with the country's leader under the right circumstances. Not only has there never been a meeting between the leaders of the two countries in the seven decades since the Korean War, there's never even been a phone conversation.
