South Korea Thinks North Ready to Denuclearize

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is still very much committed to his maybe on-again summit with President Trump in Singapore on June 12, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Sunday. The two Korean leaders met Saturday for an unannounced discussion of how to keep the summit and inter-Korean relations on track after Trump's surprise Thursday cancellation of the scheduled negotiations. Moon also reported Kim reaffirmed his promises to pursue "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula." Meanwhile, Trump told reporters late Saturday that if the summit proceeds, the time and location will remain unchanged.

Disucssion Questions:

  • Do you agree with South Korea? Why or why not?
  • Why do you think North Korea would consider giving up nuclear arms?
  • How could the world best assure North Korea denuclearizes?
