Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s trip to Pyongyang was supposed to advance the discussion of North Korea’s denuclearization. While he said that they made “a great deal of progress” on the major issues, as soon as he left North Korea put out a statement saying that the talks were “regrettable” and accused the US of being “one-sided” and “robber-like” and said that their commitment to denuclearization “may falter”. Does this mean that talks between the US and North Korea are finished? Join Ambassador Robert Gallucci, along with Stimson Senior Fellow and founder of 38 North Joel Wit as they discuss how to get diplomacy back on track.
