Anticipation Builds Ahead of Trump-Kim Meeting
As President Trump prepares to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam next week, speculation is growing over how the Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center might figure into the talks. The facility is the jewel in Pyongyang’s atomic crown, and experts suggest it continues to produce weapons-grade nuclear materials. Meanwhile, North Korea has reportedly warned the U.N. that it’s facing a major food shortage this year.
What’s Trump hoping for? Some suggest his priority is to score a symbolic victory by finally declaring peace on the Korean Peninsula.
