A long-waited meeting

Por olimurs.92

The meeting will be the summit with the highest level that both countries have ever had. The date of the meeting has been established on June 12 and will take place in a third country, Singapore. The meeting between both leaders, considered unusual, pursues the establishment of an agreement to achieve the denuclearization of North Korea.

What is unique of all this theme is that no US president has ever met with a North Korean leader and, moreover, less than a year ago both countries were threatening with total destruction. The news was announced by Trump a few hours after praising Kim for the release of three American prisoners. Definitely next Tuesday June 12 will go down in history as the most resounding success or, perhaps, the biggest failure of the US president.

The election of Singapore as a neutral country has been rumored for days. Its choice is related to its location - accessible to the North Korean regime, which has a limited and precarious air fleet - and also to the image of greater neutrality that it transmits in respect to other options that were considered, including Ulan Bator, capital of Mongolia, and Panmunjom, located on the border between North Korea and South Korea.

President Trump said in his Twitter account that he and his South Korean counterpart will try to turn the meeting into a very special moment for world peace. Only hours before announcing the statement, the three Americans released by Pyonggyang arrived on American soil as a gesture of goodwill towards the summit. They are Kim Dong-chul, a 62-year-old hotelier, imprisoned since April 2016 on espionage charges; and two professors, Tony Kim and Kim Hak-duk, arrested in April and May of last year, respectively.

The American leader himself received them at a military base near Washington, in the state of Maryland. There, he praised his South Korean counterpart and thanked him for his excellent attitude towards the three American citizens.

Undoubtedly, the conflict between the US and North Korea has taken a radical turn in a short time, and the success -or failure- of the next June summit will be one of the greatest accomplishment of Donald Trump’s Administration. If denuclearization is achieved in North Korea, the most sanctioned country in the world for its atomic career, the US president will have achieved what none of his predecessors have.

Seeing is believing.
