Big News. Isn’t it ?
After more than seven decades of war, here comes an initiative by both regimes to discuss peace and end the longstanding war. We have not only seen the involvement of USA, China, South Korea and Japan trying to suppress North Korea for its nuclear missile development but also sanction from UN, various twitter fights, nuclear tests, hydrogen bomb detonation. This all happened in a year. That was quick. Huh.
Being said that, I admire the way Kim Jon Un has displayed the strength of North Korea instead of a weak nation which stood up against the international pressure. Rather than being bullied by a developed and a big nation, N. Korea chose not to bend but to build itself as a strong opponent and then discuss terms and negotiations. I do not know that if the Korean Peninsula will ever be denuclearized as why will someone spend millions/billions of money on the nuclear arsenal just to dump or destroy it. Does not make sense to me.
One of my theory which can be a strategy of US is that, they might have helped North Korea to build its nuclear arsenal and would have just pretend internationally that they are against the missile development. However, it gives USA another boost to international diplomacy. Since North Korea now has nuclear missiles, US can not only make them their ally/friend but can also target/build pressure on China from there. It might look impossible now, but this is a checkmate situation.
This is hard to believe but if true, US that was a fantastic job !
