Trump Says He’ll Know Outcome of North Korea Summit After One Minute

"Kim Jong Un is revered as a god-like being in his country, while outside the North, he's been subject to hostility because of the way his regime is run, and that's enough to always cause safety concerns for his officials", said Chae.

Not so unusual, said Peter Ward, a North Korea researcher at Seoul National University. Kim also hopes to earn worldwide prestige for his government; to gain recognition, particularly from Washington, of North Korea as a nuclear weapon state; to move US troops off the Korean Peninsula; and to generally weaken the US-South Korea alliance.

"Summits are when leaders size each other up, for better or for worse", writes Robert Carlin, a frequent visitor to North Korea, both as a USA official and outside analyst. Trump also wants to emerge from the negotiations looking like the master deal maker he claims to be, solving a tough problem his predecessors could not. "That's what I do", Trump continued. And he may have achieved this under false pretences.

His administration had previously suggested its goal is for Kim to immediately denuclearize, but Trump in recent weeks has appeared to scale back his expectations for the meeting. But Lee and the other analysts pointed out that Libya hadn't developed nuclear weapons nor intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), and North Korea has both. "Both the American as well as the North Koreans are pleased with the arrangements, we're all set to go and things will start happening within the next 24 hours", he said.

He refuted suggestions he had already given Kim a win by agreeing to even have the meeting.

Donald Trump said North Korea has been working well with them ahead of the summit. Ambiguity about exactly what "denuclearization" must look like has left some wringing their hands, while others fear he may yield on a longtime North Korean wish that the US withdraw some or all of its military presence on the Korean Peninsula.

Hundreds of North Korean security experts have no doubt been up nights wondering how to safeguard Kim Jong Un since Trump shocked the world by accepting the North's invitation to meet.

The President customarily invites the champions of major professional and college sports to the White House for a visit. It's typical of him and, I don't know, I mean, I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyways.

"So it's one-time, it's a one-time shot, and I think it's going to work out very well". "We're going in with a very positive spirit".

If Singapore's reputation for tight security was one reason the real Kim Jong Un agreed to hold his summit with Donald Trump in the city-state, the fake Kim Jong Un now knows why. Beijing is considering deploying fighter jets to escort Kim Jong Un's aircraft when it is in Chinese airspace, South Korea's Yonhap News Agency said, citing an unnamed source in Beijing.

South Korean activists hold candles during a rally to support of the USA and North Korea summit on June 9 in Seoul. Although then-South Korean President Syngman Rhee, who wanted to fight on until the North was crushed, refused to sign the armistice, it still took effect.

That is three successes for Kim, two large and one medium-size.

And nothing, too, about the summit.

What the United States gets in return will be the measure of the summit's success. Second, the self-imposed moratorium on missile and nuclear explosion tests has interrupted North Korea's march toward deploying a credible nuclear missile capability. For decades, if a potential deal with North Korea looked too good to be true, it nearly certainly was.

In addition, the two leaders likely will establish some of the essential matters that they want to address under an agreement and a commitment to the negotiating process. But, in the short term, the North may also see a treaty - and its presumed safety assurances from Washington - as its best way of preserving the Kim family dynasty.
