Reactions to North Korea's Denuclearization Pledge
Headline Roundup April 23rd, 2018
Reactions vary in the wake of North Korea's denuclearization pledge. South Korea stops propaganda broadcasts, but there is still distrust of The North Korea dictator and different views of what denuclearization would mean.
When North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his South Korea counterpart, Moon Jae-in, meet next Friday, the most important topic on the agenda is the one on which there has been least clarity: denuclearization.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s surprise announcement that his nation will suspend tests of nuclear weapons and missiles and close its nuclear testing site sounds like a momentous victory for the U.S. It’s not – at least, not yet.
South Korea halted the propaganda broadcasts it blares across the border with North Korea on Monday, aiming to set a positive tone ahead of the first summit in a decade between their leaders as the U.S. president cautioned the nuclear crisis was far from resolved.
