Trump to host South Korea’s President to discuss North Korea’s nuclear diplomacy
South Korean President Moon Jae-in will travel to the United States in two weeks for a summit with President Donald Trump on stalemated North Korean nuclear diplomacy. according to NBC.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s office said Friday that Moon will visit the United States on April 10-11 and meet with Trump. It says the two leaders will discuss how to achieve North Korea’s complete denuclearization and peace on the Korean Peninsula, according to TIME.
South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha was expected to meet her US counterpart, Mike Pompeo, for talks that were focused on the next steps after the ruptured North Korea-US summit in Hanoi in February.
U.S.-led diplomacy on ridding North Korea of its nuclear program remain stalled since Trump’s second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam last month ended without any deal.
North Korea later threatened to quit the nuclear diplomacy, citing a lack of U.S. steps to match disarmament measures it took last year.
