    North Korea Tag

    News has come out that North Korea launched at least two unidentified projectiles toward the sea on Tuesday. This action comes hours after the nation's officials offered to resume nuclear diplomacy with the United States.
    The North's projectile launches and demand for new proposals were apparently aimed at pressuring the United States to make concessions when the North Korea-U.S. talks restart. North Korea is widely believed to want the United States to provide it with security guarantees and extensive relief from U.S.-led sanctions in return for limited denuclearization steps.

    I recently urged readers to approach reports of a purge of North Korean officials associated with the Hanoi Summit with the U.S. that ended abruptly with skepticism. Now it appears that everyone should take the cautious approach since the media reported Kim Jong-un sent one of the high ranking diplomats involved in the summit to a labor camp, but pictures show him enjoying himself at a North Korean theater....along with the Dear Leader.

    The last time we checked on North Korea, all the participating parties in the Hanoi Summit were regrouping after the sudden collapse of the high-level meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korea's Chairman Kim Jong Un. Now it is being reported that after a North Korean opposition group stormed the North Korean embassy in Spain last month, it handed over data stolen from the raid to the FBI.

    We have been chronicling how South Korea has been teaming up with North Korea on a number if different projects in an apparent effort geared toward eventually opening up the rogue nation in a way that will not be a severe economic strain on its southern neighbor. Though the Hanoi Summit did not conclude with a declaration, South Korea's President Moon Jae-in promises he will work toward having the other two countries complete the peace deal.

    Given the Democratic-staged drama of the Cohen hearings, one would be forgiven for not recognizing another historic summit occurred yesterday between President Donald Trump and North Korea's Dictator Kim Jong Un. Perhaps the American press will turn its attention to Hanoi today, as President Donald Trump cut short the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un after denuclearization talks went nowhere.
    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the two leaders "had very good and constructive meetings" and "discussed various ways to advance denuclearization and economic driven concepts," but that "no agreement was reached at this time."
