    Km Jong Un and Donald Trump to meet at the DMZ

    Kim Jong Un agrees to meet Donald Trump at DMZ, source says

    Seoul, South Korea (CNN)South Korean President Moon Jae-in has convinced North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to hold his upcoming meeting with US President Donald Trump at the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas, a source tells CNN.

    Moon and Kim met at the same location in Panmunjom last Friday, a historically significant event that was televised worldwide and led to an agreement to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula and formally end the Korean War.
    There is a "strong possibility" the summit will be held at the site, with some events possibly scheduled on the northern side of the military demarcation line separating the two countries, according to an official with deep knowledge of North Korea's thinking on the matter.

    Oh well, would you look at that.

    SEOUL, South Korea -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Sunday that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un remains committed to sitting down with President Donald Trump and to a "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula." The Korean leaders' meeting on Saturday saw bear hugs and broad smiles, but their second summit in a month appeared to highlight a sense of urgency on both sides of the world's most heavily armed border.
    At the White House, President Donald Trump said negotiations over a potential June 12 summit with Kim that he had earlier canceled are "going along very well." Trump told reporters that they are still considering Singapore as the venue for their talks. He said there is a "lot of good will", and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula would be "a great thing."

    It's an odd mix but it works better than if it was only a single element
    Beside that they are already not so isolated. They have good relationships with China and NK nomenklatura citizens can travel pretty easily in South East Asia (Malaysia for example was pretty open to NK citizens until the airport inciden, Singapore had a pretty easy access until two years ago etc ...t)
    Their visa proecedure have been simplified for Russia
    etc ...

    North Koreans have worked in the EU for years , though apparently this practice is coming to an end . In Russia it's gone on for years , logging and other associated heavy industries .

    Considering the North Koreans have been conditioned to follow their leader, I don't there will be a popular uprising once Kim "frees" them.

    South Koreans were offered a hope. They'll try to keep it alive as long as possible
    North Koreans have a winning hand here : this meeting shows that there is already a strategical wedge between SK and USA
    If the meeting is a success they gain win chips from an economical and possibly political pov
    If the meeting fails, well, too bad, at least both sides tried no matter the position of USA

    Rocketman doesn't seem to be under anyone's control. Maybe the Chicoms. Perhaps some überhardline Norks who view his efforts at opening a dialogue with the West as a real threat. Those people are fucked up crazy.

    To be fair, when things are under of the White House, it does not mean these said things will achieve any kind of result.

    SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, held an unannounced summit meeting with President Moon Jae-in of South Korea on Saturday, Mr. Moon’s office said, a new twist in the whirlwind of diplomacy over the fate of the North’s nuclear arsenal.
    The two leaders met for two hours on the North Korean side of Panmunjom, a “truce village” inside the Demilitarized Zone that separates the two Koreas, said Yoon Young-chan, Mr. Moon’s spokesman.

    Mr. Moon and Mr. Kim held their first summit meeting on the South Korean side of Panmunjom on April 27. Their second meeting, held in secret and announced only after it took place, came amid doubts about the future of Mr. Kim’s planned summit meeting with President Trump.


    Mr. Trump announced Thursday that he was canceling the planned meeting with Mr. Kim, which had been slated for June 12 in Singapore. But he said on Friday that he was reconsidering and that it may still take place as scheduled.
