Who knows the results of the June 12 summit between Kim Jung Un and President Donald Trump? As a non-Trump supporter, I’m still glad that the summit took place. It hopefully means at the very least that a pre-emptive strike against North Korea is less likely to happen, something I greatly feared given the bellicose statements that flew between these two leaders over the last year.
Of course there are thousands of complicating factors that will come into play as any kind of agreement is worked out over the next years.
In the meantime, I strongly urge the Trump administration and all nuclearized countries to use diplomacy to work toward a nuclear-free world, not only a denuclearized North Korea.
Nuclear weapons can never again be a weapon of choice.
