Trump-Kim Handshake May Be Meaningless Without Bridging Denuclearization Differences

President Donald Trump may have jumpstarted a new round of working-level talks with Pyongyang at his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but experts say their handshake is meaningless unless negotiators make a headway in bridging the countries™ divergent approaches toward denuclearization.
œIt was great being with Chairman Kim Jong Un of North Korea this weekend, Trump tweeted on Monday, the day after the two leaders met.
œWe had a great meeting¦I look forward to seeing him again soon¦In the meantime, our team will be meeting to work on some solutions to very long-term and persistent problems. No rush, but I am sure we will ultimately get there.
The tweet came after Trump met Kim at the Freedom House on the South Korean side of the inter-Korean border village of Panmunjom in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) that dissect the two Koreas. On Sunday, Trump announced that working-level talks with Pyongyang will begin within weeks.
