Meeting of the leaders of the DPRK and the Republic of Korea, 26 May 2018.
According to him, Trump, it seems, “decided to surpass himself”: now he stated that the date of the meeting with the DPRK leader did not change at all, everything remains in force, and he still hopes for negotiations. Apparently the last message with the cancellation of the summit was written "under the influence of an impulsive rush."
Lukyanov noted that in such circumstances, guessing whether a meeting will take place or not is meaningless. But, as Kim Jong-eun rose up in the eyes of the public, who until recently was considered a brawler provocateur. Now he seems to be a responsible, solid and wise leader: he will not say a rude word, he demonstrates goodwill to the world and humbly waits for the American interlocutor to go crazy.
A political analyst even jokingly suggested that the head of the DPRK concluded a contract with Trump to improve the image of his republic.
In turn, the Chinese Foreign Ministry "strongly supported" the newly emerging dialogue between Washington and Pyongyang and expressed the hope that the meeting of leaders would take place. In Beijing, they stressed that direct communication between them is a key element in resolving the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula.
Recall the original leaders of the United States and the DPRK agreed to meet on June 12 in Singapore. However, last Thursday, Trump said that he considers it inappropriate to hold a meeting after hostile statements from Pyongyang.
In its response, the North Korean Foreign Ministry expressed regret about this decision and declared its readiness to hold the summit at any time and in any format, since it is necessary for defusing complicated relations.
On Saturday, a new message from the US President appeared, in which he assured that he was still looking forward to meeting with Kim Jong-un at the same time and in the same place - June 12 in Singapore.
