Pompeo "confident" there will be a third summit with North Korea

Source: CBS News



By EMILY TILLETT CBS NEWS April 5, 2019, 8:55 AM

Despite two failed attempts at brokering a firm agreement to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that he's confident a third summit will take place between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Speaking to "CBS This Morning" on Friday, Pompeo would not provide a clear date or location for this third meeting, but expressed hope that it would take place "soon." Pompeo acknowledged that while "we didn't get as far as the world is demanding," the two leaders left Hanoi with a "deeper understanding of each other."

"The positions that the two sides had, the two leaders were able to make progress in that respect," he said. In February, President Trump told reporters in Vietnam he and Kim were unable to sign an agreement as scheduled largely because they disagreed on sanctions and nuclear facilities.

After the White House abruptly announced the summit would be cut short, Mr. Trump explained, "Sometimes you have to walk." Mr. Trump said walking away from the talks would be better than giving away too much. North Korea, the president said, wanted the U.S. to eliminate all sanctions imposed on the nation in exchange for the shuttering of just one nuclear facility.

3. I agree.

My first thought was to laugh. My second, what for? Maybe, tRump has nothing else to do. I wonder where it would be held? Would it abruptly be cancelled before breakfast or after lunch.

4. Why was there even a second when the first was such a 'success'?

6. There is a US bilateral consensus on regime change for North Korea

All else is deception.

Only a few isolated analysts understand the impossibility of the US approach, and the dangers it poses to stability in the region.
