MEANWHILE IN NORTH KOREA
Fox News offers an apt summation of a promising situation in North Korea which has been ignored by much of the press in its zeal to persuade voters that “chaos” reigns in the nation’s capital, the nation and maybe the whole planet.
“North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and his South Korean counterpart will meet later this month to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, his state-controlled media reported Thursday. Kim also expressed faith in President Trump‘s efforts to settle a nuclear impasse, despite recent bumps in the diplomacy,” Fox News scribe Louis Casiano recently noted.
“Chung Eui-yong, a special envoy from South Korea, told reporters that Kim stressed that ‘he has never talked negative about President Trump to his staff or anyone else,’ South Korea’s Yonhap News reported. Chung reportedly said North Korea expressed hope to improve the ‘North-U.S. relationship within Trump’s first term.’
“The statement comes after a South Korean envoy met with Kim to set up the inter-Korean summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in,” the Fox News report said. “Kim was paraphrased as saying it was his will to completely remove the danger of armed conflict and horror of war from the Korean peninsula and turn it into the cradle of peace without nuclear weapons and free from nuclear threat.”
