Is the US-North Korea Summit Actually Happening Now? (This Article Might Already Be Out of Date)by

It’s been hard to avoid news regarding US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un potentially meeting up for a momentous summit in June these past few weeks. Not long after a war of words had apparently subsided did it seem that the two polarized leaders would potentially meet up to discuss world affairs face-to-face – amidst the release of three US detainees in Pyongyang and refreshingly positive rhetoric from both sides. Since then, however, and in the space of around a week, it seems that the meeting was potentially off – but definitely still on – and then off again – and now – where are we?

The doubt ball started rolling as soon as it emerged that North Korea were aggrieved by the words of US security head John Bolton, who reportedly suggested that a situation similar to Libya could be on the cards. In addition to this, ongoing US wishes that a deal to disarm North Korea’s nuclear stronghold were also floated around, and it’s safe to say that certain Pyongyang officials didn’t take too kindly to such talk – with North Korea concerned that the US were continuing to use rhetoric that went against the spirit of the proposed meeting.

Fast forward to earlier this week and we have US President Donald Trump stating in a formal letter that the meeting in Singapore in June would now be cancelled as a result of what seems to be a breakdown in communication – however, following this development, it seems that things may be back on again – at least, the President is staying positive despite his rather public cancellation. “We’re going to see what happens, we’re talking to them now,” Trump advised.

“We’ll see what happens, it could even be the 12th. We’re talking to them now – they very much want to do it – we’d like to do it,” he continued. This could mean that – amidst all the flip-flopping – we could be seeing what has been discussed as being ‘an historic event’ playing out after all. Who’s to say? In any case, the world will be watching carefully in June to see whether or not Kim and Trump make the case for a tet-a-tet or not. If it does go ahead – what will this mean for the future of world diplomacy? We’re going to have to wait and see.
