WASHINGTON — Anna Kook goes in-depth with Korean Policy analyst, Scott Snyder with the Council on Foreign Affairs. Prior to her interview with Mr Snyder, we hear some of the key issues and expectations of the upcoming summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, the ruler of North Korea.
In the wake of the North Koreans aggressive missile testing in 2017, the Trump administration pressured China to cut off trade with North Korea. China is key to the Korean economy, which has always been among the weakest of any nation.
As we hear from Scott Snyder, the pressure has already led to a historic summit between President Moon of South Korea, and Kim Jong Un of North Korea. Now as President Trump prepares for the first-ever meeting between a US President and a leader of North Korea, we hear what we may look for as likely outcomes and how this historic summit in June, will hold the potential for a radical shift in the political status quo on the Korean peninsula.
