North Korean leader, Singapore’s PM discuss Korean Peninsula situation

11 Juin, 2018, 16:12 | Auteur: Auguste Feret

South Koreans are divided on generational and political lines about Tuesday's summit between the North's leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump.

Trump also reaffirmed the tight US-Singapore relations by reassuring PM Lee that he was "his friend".

The relative speed with which the state media got the news of Kim's arrival in Singapore out to the North Korean public suggests a certain level of confidence that the meeting will go well - or at least well enough.

Against the backdrop of Mount Paektu, a dormant volcano symbolising Korean nationhood, she said Kim had met Lee Hsien Loong, Singapore's prime minister, and would hold talks with President Donald Trump.

When the two meet in Singapore for high-stakes nuclear negotiations, Trump will be accompanied, as always, by a staffer carrying his "button" in the form of the "nuclear football" containing equipment used to authorize a strike.

Concrete barricades have been erected outside St Regis Singapore hotel which is within the zoned security area. He was received by Singapore's Foreign Affairs Minister Vivian Balakrishnan.

And en route from Canada to Singapore, Trump unleashed a harsh Twitter attack on Trudeau, which was amplified Sunday on television talk shows by Navarro and White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow.

The two leaders have had an extraordinary up-and-down relationship over the past 18 months.

The outcomes of Tuesday's unprecedented meeting are highly uncertain, but analysts say that the mere fact is happenng is a step forward.

Kim likely delegated authority to watch over the arsenal to one of a number of trusted North Korean officials who stayed in Pyongyang, including Choe Ryong Hae, one of several senior leaders who saw Kim off at the airport as he departed for Singapore, said Michael Madden, a leadership expert with the 38 North website, which monitors North Korea.

-North Korea summit must be a process, that will take time to achieve denuclearization.

A diplomatic source in Seoul told newspaper Chosun Ilbo: 'There was some trepidation about flying the 4,800 km distance aboard Kim Jong-un's own aging plane, so a third country is expected to supply it'.

But in his new diplomatic role - until March he had not left his country for more than six years - Kim has come across as polite, respectful and even charming in meetings with the Chinese and South Korean leaders.

South Korea estimates the North has 50 kilograms of plutonium, reportedly enough for around 10 bombs, and a "considerable" ability to produce uranium weapons. She led a North Korean delegation to the Winter Olympics in South Korea. "And if we're not willing to do that, we're not going to get a good deal", Graham said, complementing the worldwide community - including China and Russian Federation - for standing behind Trump in regards to sanctions on North Korea.

Trump had called Kim "Little Rocket Man" and threatened to unleash "fire and fury like the world has never seen" on North Korea as it conducted several ballistic missile tests in defiance of global warnings.

"He should disembark from Air Force One, head straight away into the meeting with no photos or handshakes allowed, sit across from Kim and ask one simple question: Are you ready to give up your nuclear weapons in a meaningful, timely and verifiable way?" He told Lee: "We've got very interesting meeting in particular tomorrow, and I just think it's going to work out very nicely".

Among those representing the United States at the lunch were Secretary of Secretary Mike Pompeo, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Adviser John Bolton.

The North Korean autocrat's every move will be followed by 3,000 journalists up until he shakes hands with Trump.
