Trump creates history setting foot on Korean Demilitarized Zone

He becomes the first sitting US President to visit the DMZ on North Korean soil. His twenty steps were a remarkable achievement and highly significant too in terms of a warm relationship with counterpart Kim Jong Un.

Both are confident to resume denuclearization talks soon though past two attempts failed in Singapore and Hanoi respectively.

However, Trump didn’t mention about denuclearization while briefing to the press on Sunday. This means the tremendous challenges still are in place even after the historic day at the DMZ.

Well, North Korea is a unique country in the world. It is isolated and so the nuclear weapons guarantee its survival. In 2016-17 Kim spent much of the time launching ballistic missiles. The last was highly powerful. It triggered an earthquake of 6.3-magnitude.

The ultimate goal of Kim has never been to unleash the horrific weapons, but to gain leverage in talks from a position of strength.

After the failed second summit in Vietnam with Trump the North Korean leader had powerful meetings with other world leaders including Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping. He also looked to keep the diplomacy alive with South Korea.
