After the summit between President Trump and Kim Jong-un ended without an agreement, various news sources reached out to the Korean Economic Institute to assess the implications of the impasse. In particular, KEI Director Kyle Ferrier's analysis was widely quoted:
Ferrier noted that “by walking away from the table, Trump is effectively signaling to North Korea that they will have to deal more with (U.S. special envoy for North Korea) Steve Biegun" He added that the setback is minimal as both sides appeared willing to keep talking. He recommended that both sides take small steps to keep the diplomatic momentum going.
