Trump’s Landmark Meeting with North Korea’s Kim

Trump's Landmark Meeting with North Korea's Kim

(Washington)

In what is being seen as similar to Nixon's China moment, President Trump has agreed to a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The meeting will take place within the next few months and the location has not been determined. It is very unusual for two top leaders to meet without a series of lower officials meeting first, but the White House says the approach is suitable in this situation because Un in the only one qualified to make decisions in the very authoritarian regime.

FINSUM : This is a sign of progress after 60 years of conflict, but it also raises the stakes for both sides.
