Summit With North Korea "One-Time Chance" For Peace, Says Donald Trump

  • How the US-North Korea summit will move the markets

Trump administration officials have cited Libya as a possible model for denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.

It's a technicality, but yes.

Haas offers a useful warning, though, as people around the world settle in to watch the show in Singapore: "Virtually no North Korea analyst inside or outside of the USA government" expects Kim to actually give up his nukes.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un delivers his New Year's speech at an undisclosed place in North Korea, Jan. 1, 2018, in this photo provided by the North Korean government. Ambiguity about exactly what "denuclearization" must look like has left some wringing their hands, while others fear he may yield on a longtime North Korean wish that the US withdraw some or all of its military presence on the Korean Peninsula.

Hundreds of North Korean security experts have no doubt been up nights wondering how to safeguard Kim Jong Un since Trump shocked the world by accepting the North's invitation to meet.

In 1997, Kim and his father left the country in the midst of a four-year-long starvation and economic crisis that some estimates suggest claimed the lives of between 240,000 and 3.5 million North Koreans, out of a population of 22 million. And there is a possibility of something like that.

First the nuts and bolts: How do you protect what many North Koreans consider their single most precious resource, the third member of the Kim family to rule and a direct descendant of North Korea's worshipped founder Kim Il Sung?

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, left, met with Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang, North Korea, while in his previous role as CIA Director. In 2003, Libya agreed to give up its nuclear, chemical, biological and missile programs to restore its standing in the global community and get sanctions relief.

Singapore has a far shorter history - it did not become an independent republic until 1965 - but it is already approaching "the stature of being the "Geneva of the East", according to Lawrence Loh, a professor of governance at the National University of Singapore. The 1950-53 conflict ended with an armistice, but not a formal peace treaty. Kim, whose organization helps defectors escape North Korea and China and assists them once they reach South Korea, said that, even now, the situation is much the same; North Koreans know their government is lying.

South Korea seems ready, and there is media speculation in Seoul that Moon might travel to Singapore to stand alongside Kim and Trump and declare an end to the war. "They certainly look like the real ones".

Kim should be aware of just how good an opportunity he has, Trump cautioned, because it will not last forever.

"It's a fairly big process".

When asked what he was doing to prepare, the president said he doesn't have to "prepare very much". I'm sure the North Koreans would sign up for that. "I think that he's going to surprise on the upside, very much on the upside", Trump said.

The situation surrounding North Korea and its nuclear program was one of the key agenda items during the talks in La Malbaie, Quebec, on the first day of the annual gathering.

Poll numbers that showed most Americans - on both sides of the aisle - approve of his handling of North Korea.
