MEAN­WHILE IN NORTH KOREA

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

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.”
