Guest: Eric Hyer, PhD, Associate Professor of International Relations of Asia, Brigham Young University, and Author of “The Pragmatic Dragon: China’s Grand Strategy and Boundary Settlements” President Trump’s summit with North Korea appears to be still in the works for June 12, after the President called it off in a public letter to North Korea’s Kim Jong Un last week. The US currently has a team of diplomats negotiating with North Korean officials in the DMZ and another team of diplomats in Singapore where the meeting is to take place. Meanwhile, one of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s top officials is traveling to the US this week to meet with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. That’s an encouraging sign for those hoping the summit happens, since a visit to the US by a senior North Korean official is very rare.
