Trump To Meet With North Korea’s Leader Later This Month
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
In his State of the Union speech this week, President Trump announced a second North Korea summit.
(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Much work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong Un is a good one. Chairman Kim and I will meet again on February 27th and 28th in Vietnam.
GREENE: All right. The date, the place all set of – these two leaders, of course, met for the first time last summer in Singapore. That’s where they signed a broad statement that called for denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. So what has happened since then, and what could come next out of this meeting in Vietnam? To talk about that, we’re turning to Joel Wit. He’s a former State Department official who led the first American nuclear inspection in North Korea in 1999. He’s in our studios in Washington. Welcome back.
