North Korea's Kim Jong-un Wants Peace With US

Washington DC.                       Larry French

The story so far: President Donald Trump accepted North Korea's invitation for direct talks with Kim Jong Un, to be held by May.

The U.S. fully expects the meeting to take place, the White House said shortly after Tillerson's remarks.

Both sides can claim credit for the rapid thawing of relations and Trump may suggest that his hard line policy on Pyongyang, including the imposition of severe economic sanctions and his threat to wage a preemptive nuclear attack on North Korea, have vindicated his policies and bore fruit. Whether that fact will seal the deal for Pyongyang remains to be seen, but to date the U.S. has seemed willing to sacrifice a lot on the domestic front in favor of hostility and war. -South Korean joint military exercises to continue, and ensuring that denuclearization is on the table.

At a news conference during a visit to Nigeria's capital, Abuja, Tillerson said that the USA expects to hear directly from Pyongyang.

Demonstrably, Kim has been a major posturer, showing the world and its leaders North Korea's military capability at nearly every turn, most importantly their nuclear capability (embarrassingly for him, many test launches failed).

Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo says the USA will not make concessions to North Korea before President Trump holds talks with the reclusive country's leader, Kim Jong Un. The Winter Olympics provided the venue for contacts between the south and north Korean countries.

On "CBS This Morning" Monday, Bremmer called it "a really big deal" that Mr. Trump agreed to meet with the North Korean leader; he would be the first American president or world leader to do so.

"I think North Korea needs time to organize their position and is being careful and cautious in approaching regarding the summit", said Unification Ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyn.

Hours after the announcement, news website Politico reported a summit could be in jeopardy after the Trump administration followed the vague announcement before announcing detailed plans that include preconditions North Korea would likely never agree to.

The possibility of a meeting made headlines last week when South Korean officials announced a possible summit after meeting with Trump at the White House.

Yang said China supports the current diplomatic efforts and added that the nuclear standoff with the North should be resolved peacefully.

According to Seoul, North Korea's silence on the historic development means the secretive state "needs time to organize its stance". Suh is scheduled to meet with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga before returning to Seoul on Tuesday.

The participation of two North Korean paralympians in the 2018 Paralympics happening now in Pyeongchang, South Korea, also has gotten attention because the country has drawn criticism from the United Nations for its treatment of its disabled citizens.
