Kim to the negotiating table "I do think and I want to think that this aggressive behavior of our president is going to have a positive effect on him"Earlier when he met Lofven in the Oval Office Trump told reporters that he’d "like to be optimistic" and blamed his three predecessors – Barack Obama George W Bush and Bill Clinton – for failing to secure the nuclear disarmament of North Korea"This should’ve been handled over many years by many different administrations but these are the cards we are dealt" Trump said He added: "It never worked out That was the time to have settled this problem – not now"In both appearances Trump brought up the case of Otto Warmbier who died six days after being returned to this country in a coma and in "very poor condition" following 17 months of imprisonment in North Korea Trump thanked Sweden whose embassy represents the United States in Pyongyang for its "terrific" assistance in arranging Warmbier’s return Three US citizens remain imprisoned in North KoreaThe Korean overtures come at a time when the United States has no ambassador in South Korea and no special representative on North Korea and when the nominee for assistant secretary of state for East Asia has yet to be confirmed by the SenateDuring its visit to Pyongyang a delegation led by Chung Eui-yong the South Korean national security adviser had a four-hour dinner with Kim and his wife as well as other senior officials including Kim’s sister Kim Yo Jong who went to South Korea for the opening of the Winter Olympics last month"The dinner proceeded in a warm atmosphere overflowing with compatriotic feelings" the North’s official Korean Central News Agency said in a report one of several that mentioned the Koreans’ shared blood and implied that they were united together against the outside worldChung who will travel to Washington later this week to brief Trump administration officials returned to Seoul with an agreement that surprised analysts with its scopeVice President Pence – who attended the Olympics Opening Ceremonies – said the United States and allies seek to keep "maximum pressure" on the North if talks emerge or not"All options are on the table and our posture toward the regime will not change until we see credible verifiable and concrete steps toward denuclearization" said a statement from PenceIn Korea during the Olympics Pence met with the South’s president Moon But a planned encounter with Kim’s sister was scrapped by North KoreaNorth Korea "made it clear" that it would not resume provocations – such as nuclear tests or intercontinental ballistic missile launches – while it was engaged in talks with the South he said This commitment comes even as the US and South Korean militaries prepare to start huge annual drills that North Korea considers preparation for an invasion and that typically lead to a sudden increase in tensions on the peninsulaThe regime reiterated a willingness to talk with the United States its avowed enemy since the Korean War and "clearly affirmed its commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" Chung said once back in SeoulIf events play out the way Seoul hopes Moon will be meeting Kim for a summit on the southern side of the inter-Korean border late next monthMoon’s progressive predecessors both traveled to Pyongyang for summits with Kim’s father Kim Jong Il Analysts had said it would be unseemly for a South Korean leader to make the same pilgrimage a third timeThe two sides agreed that the next summit will be held inside Peace House at Panmunjom the "truce village" straddling the Demilitarized Zone that divides the peninsula The house is just over the southern side of the border lineThis would be the first time since the Korean War ended in 1953 that the North Korean leader had crossed into the South and the first meeting between Kim and another head of state in his six years in powerThe two Koreas also agreed to establish a hotline between the leaders of the two sides to ease military tensions and to be able to consult closely They will test the line with a phone call before the summit"This is a potentially significant development but it’s too soon to judge" said Scott Snyder a Korea expert at the Council on Foreign Relations The Trump administration would want to hear the same message directly from the North Koreans he saidNorth Korea has a history of striking bargains with the outside world almost always involving some kind of payment for some kind of weapons freeze But it has quickly broken the deals that it has signed including the 1994 "agreed framework" and a 2005 denuclearization deal struck during now-defunct six-party talksThis track record suggests that skepticism about this tentative agreement is warranted"I’d caution against too much optimism because we’ve been down this road too many times before" said Abraham Denmark a former Asia official at the Pentagon now director of the Asia program at the Wilson Center"Even if it’s eventually successful it’s going to be difficult There will be setbacks and uncertainty" Denmark saidBut the development also offers a welcome glimmer of hope after months of talk emanating from Washington about military options for dealing with North Korea’s nuclear advancesAlmost every Korea expert in Washington agrees that there are no good military options for dealing with North KoreaWith this diplomatic gambit Moon is managing to stave off talk of strikes at least for now said Gordon Flake a longtime Korea expert in Washington who is now at the University of Western Australia"Moon sees the same things in DC that the rest of us see" Flake said "He’s trying to buy some time to figure out some kind of peace"Author Information: Brian Murphy joined the Post after more
