Summit Sum-Up: A Conversation with Ambassador Jim Zumwalt
With the world's attention on Singapore on June 12, U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un walked across a stage flanked by American and North Korean flags, and officially made history. Afterward, they released a Singapore Statement that laid out some common goals that both sides agree to implement. But anaysts point out that much of that Statement is vague at best, and skepticism about the success of future talks is still high.
In this week's episode, Korean Kontext host Jenna Gibson sat down with Ambassador Jim Zumwalt, who is CEO of Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA, to discuss his thoughts on how the summit went, what the two countries need to do in the coming weeks to move the process forward, and how other regional players like Japan and South Korea have reacted to the big meeting.
