Seems as if North Korea may be caving in to international pressure and the possibility of stricter sanctions. Knowing that China is also unhappy with them because of escalating tension caused by their pursuit of nuclear arms, may have pressured them to consider holding talks with Washington "under the right conditions."


A senior North Korean diplomat in charge of U.S. affairs said Saturday Pyongyang will hold talks with Washington "under the right conditions," raising the possibility bilateral contact amid U.S. President Donald Trump having expressed his willingness to meet with the North's leader. Choe Son-hui, director-general of the North America bureau chief of North Korea's foreign ministry, told reporters at the Beijing Capital International Airport that her country "will hold dialogue under right conditions" with the U.S. administration.

Choe led a North Korean delegation that met with a group of American experts, headed by Suzanne DiMaggio -- director of the U.S. think tank New America -- in Oslo, Norway, earlier this week, according to South Korean diplomatic sources.

South Korea's newly elected Moon Jae-in of the liberal Democratic Party has stated that he would be willing to hold dialogue with Pyongyang to resolve the problem over North Korea's weapons. How will the left spin this, if Trump's willingness to hold talks with North Korea and his dialogue with Chinese President Xi Jinping, neutralizes the tension on the Korean Peninsula?


U.S. President Donald Trump warned in an interview with Reuters in late April that a "major, major conflict" with the North was possible, but he would prefer a diplomatic outcome to the dispute over its nuclear and missile programs. Trump later said he would be "honored" to meet the North's leader, Kim Jong Un, under the right conditions.

This was all sabre rattling by Lil Kim, to get the U.S./SK to the table for some juicy concessions. Thing is, he hasn't met a President like Trump yet. Trump may go hard line and let Kim know that testing nukes will get him nowhere fast or he may give a little to let Kim save face. Humiliating Kim will only escalate things, so I think Trump may give a bit.

A bit.

Why bring up the whole "what will the left do about this?" Crap? Seriously?

This entire "left/right" belittling is so annoying when there's actually decent news to read in the OP.

You know, after thinking about it....The liberal media is not being kind to Trump, to say the least. If they all go to the table and Trump is firm, they'll say he is wanting a war. If he gives a bit to de escalate the situation, they'll say he's weak Trump can't win with the liberal media. No matter what he does, they'll spin it.

If this is true, then just the stated intent to hold talks under the right conditions from both sides is a major step forward.
We might be seeing the difference between a strong president in Trump and a weakling in Obama.

I guess sending a battle group capable of taking pretty much all of N K major military assets was a good idea.

I do not like the US getting involved in this, but perhaps Lit'L KiM found out Trumps line in the sand is for real?

Isn't it actually funny how Mr. T believes he knows best how to deal with Asians?
Playing hard while showing fake honour to the enemy. Yep, but remember Japanese during WWII and Chinese later.
Maybe he should take psychology lessons and history lessons too. "How to make a deal with Mao-like psychopath with messiah syndrome."

Trump should not attend any meeting with Fay Boy. He should send an underling; Fat Boy is not worthy of a President of our country's stature. That would send the real message to NK. Keep em guessing-never show your cards.

This is an instance where Trump's arrogance could serve him well. No more Obama bowing and kissing everywhere he went. What an embarrassment.

I highly doubt China will be sending their top guy either-Fat Boy and buddies need to disappear and free the NK people.

We need no diplomacy with NK.

Wow. So, fantastic news, if it can be pulled off.

If Kim Jong Un's regime is willing to discuss matters, rather than simply bluster and rattle sabres, then that can only bode well, or at least less badly for the people of his country in the long term, so that is definitely a plus.

However, it is probably worth pointing out that the issue of how the left wing of American politics and the media decides to deal with this information has absolutely no importance. At this stage, it is not even something worth considering. I HATE Trump, I hate his crap eating smirk, I hate the way he made his money (by exploiting people rather than actually doing any real work himself), and I hate the hell out of the methods he used to win the election. I hate the choices he has made for vital positions, the fact that he claims to be draining the swamp of Washington politics, despite the fact that he is drawing in CEOs from big industry, many of whom are actually advocates of the very sorts of policy which CAUSE the problems that America has, as opposed to solving any of them.

BUT... If Trump can pull off a successful negotiation with North Korea, de-escalate the tension in that region, and soften the harder edges of the discourse between North Korea and not only the US but South Korea as well, then at the very least his Presidency will have had ONE positive outcome. It might not be an outcome which makes any difference what so ever to people on the ground in the US (because NK really poses zero threat to the USA, even with nuclear weapons at its disposal), but at least the world could stand to gain a tiny bit less war pressure from the negotiations as might go forward.

I look forward to seeing how this shakes down in the long run.

Trump winning at diplomacy, the Left will cringe even harder now. This is validating Trump's tough foreign policy of peace through strength, exactly what the American people voted for.

So what? That's what the media does to everyone. Since when is media ever spot on with their remarks?

It's completely uninteresting and irrelevant when the news in the op, which is big news, is such a compelling event

Kim played them all like a fiddle. Now they move forward on his terms.

Wonderfully played. Dont let another country bully you or tell you what you can and cant do.

Finally, some good news! Yes, the group mentioned, New America, has been working hoping for an Iran-like deal with North Korea since 2016. North Korea seems to have been lower on the priority list of crucial things to do for the Obama Administration. With South Korea's new liberal Pres, we will see what can come of such talks. How radical a change it will be for the Korea Peninsula and Asia/Pacific in general we will see. It will no doubt take awhile, but at least the nuclear fuse may have been temporarily stepped on. New world order afoot.

It's the same old song and dance , belligerence followed by reward.

Back to Russia then.

I really hope this happens and goes well.

Also I have trust in Trump with dealing such situation, maybe he is able to make the NK leader to come to his senses, look around, and understand the World is moving ahead and they are being left behind.

In reality I guess NK leader knows he is not in a position to threaten anyone and is putting the life of all Korean people at risk.

I've been saying the same thing all along. play to the fame, not the game. then trump and kim could go back to their respective countries and say "look what I can do!"
send over some Hennessey and hug it out

And then start a war...?

Isn't this whole meeting to prevent one? I think you've missed the point
