Trump says he’d meet Kim Jong Un if conditions are right

Despite the tension over NorthKorea’s nuclear weapons programme, US President Donald Trump said he would meet with Kim Jong Un if the circumstances were right.

“If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would absolutely, I would be honoured to do it,” Mr Trump said Monday in an interview with Bloomberg News.
“If it’s under the, again, under the right circumstances. But I would do that.”, he added.

“Most political people would never say that,” Mr Trump said of his willingness to meet with the reclusive Mr Kim, “but I’m telling you under the right circumstances I would meet with him. We have breaking news”, said President Trump.

It is to be noted that the United States have no diplomatic relations with North Korea. Additionally, last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the US would settle with North Korea only if it made trustworthy steps toward giving up its nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

Lately, North Korea has become a threat to the national security which has created ripples in Trump’s foreign policy as Kim’s administration has continued developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles in disobedience of international condemnation and sanctions. The threat is as such that the military analysts have predicted that North Korea is underway to generate a nuclear-tipped ballistic missile that could reach the US mainland as soon as 2020, during Mr Trump’s term in office.

Notably, Kim has not met any major world leader since taking charge after his father’s death in late 2011 and hasn’t left his isolated country. His nuclear programme gives him prestige at home. And leaving North Korea, even for a brief while, could expose him to the risk of a coup by opponents in the military.
