N. Korea calls for replacing Pompeo with ‘more careful and mature’ negotiator

North Korea called Thursday for replacing U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with a “more careful and mature” negotiator, accusing the top American diplomat of failing to understand Pyongyang’s position and causing the denuclearization talks to become “entangled.” A senior North Korean foreign ministry official made the demand, claiming that whenever Pompeo “pokes his nose […]

The US, China and ‘Technology War’

Although Donald Trump’s “trade war” against China has consumed much of the world’s attention throughout 2018 and into 2019, policy communities on all sides appear to agree that old-fashioned trade frictions are really just an appetizer ahead of the main course: a looming “technology war” between the two great powers.

When Kim Jong-un chose to travel nearly 4,000 kilometers by train to meet Donald Trump, it was only the beginning of a long and bumpy road to disarmament and peace, which remains out of reach after many handshakes, pleasantries and two days of talks. The North Korean leader and the U.S. president once again became […]

Forecasting Korea’s future

The French have two expressions that capture the essence of Kim Jong-un’s New Year address. First, there’s “deja vu” ― or maybe “deja vu all over again,” as the American baseball player Yogi Berra famously put it.

WHAT can face-to-face diplomacy between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un achieve? It is wisest not to expect a revolutionary change in Trump’s approach and instead for him to play to his strengths: ceremony and personal relationships.
