Trump Suggests "Protections" For Kim In North Korea Nuclear Deal

Trump Suggests

The US President Donald trump said that he was ready to provide protection to North Korea and its leader Kim Jong Ynu in the case of abandonment of the DPRK nuclear weapons. Trump said the two cases are very different.

Arend noted that North Korea may simply be preemptively establishing the pretext it can use to undermine the Trump-Kim summit, if and when it actually happens.

State Department officials responded cautiously, with department spokeswoman Heather Nauert telling reporters there had been no official message from North Korea or from South Korea to US officials about the ongoing military drills.

With over a month left before the proposed meeting and the US/NK relationship already taking a frosty turn since last week's hostage release, there's a significant possibility the meeting doesn't happen as planned, or at all in 2018.

The Blue House intends to "sufficiently convey (to the US) what we've discerned about North Korea's position and attitude. and sufficiently convey the US' position to North Korea", thereby helping to bridge the gap between their positions, the official said. "We may have the meeting". He tweets: "We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!" "So we'll see what happens".

In a statement on Wednesday that threatened withdrawal from the summit, North Korea's first vice minister of foreign affairs, Kim Kye Gwan, derided as "absurd" Bolton's suggestion of a deal similar to that under which components of Libya's nuclear program were shipped to the United States.

Bolton was referring to the dismantling of Libya's weapons of mass destruction program, but Trump appeared to refer to the "Libyan model" as the subsequent military intervention in Libya years later that removed Moammar Gadhafi from power. "He'd be there, be in his country, he'd be running his country".

"Well, the Libyan model isn't a model that we have (in mind) at all when we're thinking of North Korea. We went in there to beat him", Trump said. "We went in and decimated him, and we did the same thing with Iraq".

The Chinese were treated so indulgently by past administrations, Trump said, he doubted high-level trade talks with the People's Republic would be successful. "Now that model would take place if we don't make a deal, most likely", Trump told reporters prior to his meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the White House.

Trump also suggested that China might be influencing the decisions of North Korea citing that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had visited China immediately after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo came back.

"We're continuing to move forward in preparations and the president as we've said all along will be prepared and ready to meet and there's really not a lot to add beyond that point", she explained.

"You have to want to do it".

Trump's pre-emptive blaming for deals not yet achieved extended elsewhere. Kim "absolutely wanted to do it".

As for President Trump, so far, he has refrained from making a statement about the new developments leading up to the planned summit, either before the media or via his Twitter account. -South Korean military drills were practicing strikes on strategic targets in North Korea, and accused the South of allowing "human scum to hurt the dignity" of the North's supreme leadership.

Trump said Thursday comparisons with Libya would be more apt if North Korea fails to reach an agreement with the U.S.to rid itself of nuclear weapons. She added the annual exercises are long-planned, defensive in nature and meant to ensure the readiness of USA and South Korean forces.

That means the USA has to act too - perhaps cutting the number of troops based in South Korea or also getting rid of the nuclear umbrella it uses to protect the region.
