The lead-up to June 12 has been a rollercoaster, as U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made plans to meet, canceled them, and then reinstated them. The two countries have been publicly clashing about denuclearization, and third parties such as China, South Korea, and Japan are eager to get involved with the summit. Now that the summit’s back on, we’re on track for a historic tête-à-tête.
Will it be high on spectacle and low on substance? Will it create a framework for follow-through and implementation? What are the implications of the two leaders’ meeting?
Please join the Center for American Progress for a discussion of the U.S.-North Korea summit on June 12 as we look at where relations between the two countries stand, where they’re going, and what the repercussions are for other regional players.
