Kim-Trump meeting is back on track

White House stated that the preparations for the Singapore meeting between President Donald  Trump and North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un, are on the track. The meeting will take place on the 12th of June in Singapore. Both men will meet at 9 am in the morning. The place of the meeting has not yet been made public. The meeting is set to take place at the summit organized by Singapore. 

However, the sanctions will not be lifted as a result of this meeting. In order to do that, North Korea must abandon its nuclear program. The denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula is expected to be high on the agenda of this meeting. Moreover, there are chances that talks will also focus on permanently ending the Korean War. 

Initially, it was uncertain whether the talks between the US and North Korean would even take place.The meeting was also called off for some time last month after Mr. Trump had disagreements with North Korea. Sarah Sanders, White House spokeswoman, stated on Monday that the National Security team has been briefing Mr. Trump regarding the specifics of the meeting. Mr.Trump has assured that he will not impose any additional sanctions if North Korea keeps on cooperating. 

Ahead of the meeting, North Korea has engaged in a plethora of diplomatic meetings. Russia has abstained to weigh in on the Kim-Trump meeting,albeit the Russian Foreign Minister recently visited Pyongyang. North Korea also stated that a state visit by Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, is also set to take place.

At least seven Democrats have advised Trump that any relaxation on the sanctions imposed on North Korea without the confirmation that it will abandon the nuclear weapons, will be most definitely construed as a "bad idea". Furthermore, they have also told Mr. Trump not to waste this incredible opportunity to denuclearise Korean Peninsula.
