New Letters Between Trump and Kim Point to Possible Second U.S.-North Korea Meeting

Aug. 3, 2018 (EIRNS)—Ignoring general press coverage seeking to declare President Donald Trump’s Korea diplomacy a failure, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and Trump have exchanged letters in recent days at the same time as 55 boxes of remains of Korean War dead were returned to the U.S. by North Korea. Presidential Press Secretary Sarah Sanders did not divulge the contents of either letter in her Aug. 2 briefing; however, Kim’s letter may have proposed a second meeting between the two, since Trump also “replied” on Twitter:

“Thank you to Chairman Kim Jong Un for keeping your word & starting the process of sending home the remains of our great and beloved missing fallen! Also, thank you for your nice letter—I look forward to seeing you soon!”

During the briefing Sanders also replied to a question, that a second meeting is “not locked in.”

If the possible meeting takes place during the United Nations General Assembly in September, which both Trump and Kim may attend, it could also involve other leaders present, such as South Korean President Moon Jae-In.
