Trumps maximumpressure policy works as Kim Jong Un requests meeting to denuke
North Korea’s Kim Jong Un wants to meet with US President Donald Trump – and there may potentially be a deal on the table to de-nuke NK’s dangerous dictator.
A South Korean official said: “He (KJU) expressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible.
“President Trump appreciated the briefing and said he would meet Kim Jong Un by May to achieve permanent denuclearisation.”
South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong credited the US Prez, saying: “I explained to President Trump that his leadership and his maximum-pressure policy, together with international solidarity, brought us to this juncture.”
Trump himself responded to the significant development by tweeting that “Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze”.
Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!
