To get reaction to today's events, we now connect with Dr. Mark P. Barry,... an independent Asian affairs analyst who has been following North Korea affairs for close to three decades. Thank you for joining us, Dr. Barry.
1. President Moon confirmed again today that he had a message from Kim Jong-un to President Trump. Would you say that was perhaps the most important part of today's meeting?
2. President Trump said several times that they are working towards a second summit with Kim Jong-un. Looking at his comments today and the events of last week, do you think it will happen soon? Considering how the U.S. has stressed that denuclearization has to happen, do you think North Korea has done enough to convince the U.S. to hold a second summit?
3. North Korea says it will take more steps towards denuclearization, but only if the U.S. takes corresponding measures. Do you think the U.S. will make such corresponding measures, and what do you think they look like?
(4. What do you make of the revised free trade agreement between South Korea and U.S. that Presidents Moon and Trump signed today?)
Mark P. Barry, Associate Editor of International Journal on World Peace,... thank you for your insights.
