    Trump Administration Struggles For Path Forward On Nuclear Talks As Tensions Mount With North Korea I5OK6

    From The Washington Post

    President Trump’s claims that reduced tensions with North Korea resulting from his personal diplomacy with Kim Jong Un demonstrated progress toward a nuclear deal were undercut Friday as Pyongyang lashed out at the administration’s “gangster-like” tactics and blamed his top aides for the failed summit last month.

    In the latest sign of mounting hostilities since disarmament talks collapsed in Hanoi, a top North Korean official also declared that leader Kim Jong Un is weighing cutting off bilateral dialogue with the United States. The threat came amid evidence that the regime had recently rebuilt a space rocket and missile launch site and raised doubts about the future of the negotiations.

    Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui emphasized at a news conference in Pyongyang that the two leaders maintain a good relationship after the summit ended without a deal. And U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo played down tensions, responding in Washington that he expected that the two sides would continue “very professional conversations.”

    Yet behind the scenes, Trump aides have struggled to articulate a path forward to bridge the wide gaps between Washington’s demands that the North fully dismantle its nuclear weapons program and Pyongyang’s insistence that the United States ease punishing economic sanctions in exchange for incremental steps.

    In a private briefing in Washington this week, one White House official told foreign policy analysts that Trump’s talks with Kim last month convinced the president that the regime is unwilling to surrender its nuclear program, said Sue Mi Terry, a Korea expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies who attended the briefing.

    Trump's struggles with North Korea is showing through especially after the second summit between Kim Jong Un and Trump came up empty. A president would have come up with ideas already, but then again, you need someone who could actually broker a deal that would benefit both sides.

    Just Saying.

    Sadly, it's looking pretty dead in the water at this point Sad .

    It's difficult to see how to move forward with it. Kim was demanding the total removal of sanctions - and, that's just impossible for the USA to agree to. Even a partial lifting of sanctions probably shouldn't happen until North Korea has dismantled all of its nuclear test sites (after all, even without the nuclear programme, North Korea is still a totalitarian dictatorship with an atrocious human rights record).

    I do hope this can be picked up again at some point, but I guess now's not the time.
