Donald Trump has become the first US president to meet and shake hands with a North Korean leader. After months of speculation and threats, the two men met on Singapore’s Sentosa island.

They held a 40 minute meeting, followed by a signing of a joint statement in which they agreed to the de-nuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

But it was a document vague in detail and lacking a time frame.

So, what will the North Korean leader get in return for agreeing to ‘de-nuclearise’?

Presenter: Hashem Ahelbarra

Guests:

Scott Snyder – Senior Fellow for Korea Studies and Director of the Program on US-Korea Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations.

Tai Wei Lim – Adjunct Research Fellow for the East Asian Institute at the National University of Singapore.

Victor Gao – Director of the China National Association of International Studies.

The puppet show continues.

Michael LeBlanc says:

Denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula means that President Trump just agreed to remove nuclear weapons from South Korea. These weapons that America keeps in this region protects the South Koreans and other Asian Partners such as Japan. If President Obama would have even suggested America remove their nuclear deterrent from South Korea, they would have said this was treasonous. This Man Mr. Trump the American President just gave North Korea legitimacy and agreed to remove American nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula, this is not a win, but a surrender.

Don't trust either of them, but North Korea would be wise to tread carefully…the US regime has a history of walking away from agreements, etc. Rollercoaster of unpredictability.
