As the dust settles in the wake of the much-vaunted and, ultimately, failed second summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam, are the two countries now back at square one?
Before the summit, the U.S. president had hoped to make a deal with his
“friend” Kim, raising speculation of a more solid denuclearization agreement
— possibly even an “end-of-war declaration” of the Korean War, which has
technically continued even after an armistice agreement in 1953. (Japan Times)
