Report: Ahead Of Potential Trump-Kim Summit, North Korea Says They’ll Suspend Nuclear & ICBM Tests

Move comes ahead of expected meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

As a potential meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un draws closer, North Korea appears to be laying the groundwork for potential cooperation.

They have announced that nuclear tests and ICBM tests have been suspended. They are also pledging to close a nuclear test site.

According to the regime, they are making the move to shift their national focus towards improving their economy. They say the want to buildĀ an “optimal international environment” for economic success.

While everything said by North Korea’s regime needs to be taken with a grain of salt, it’s a step in the right direction, and is encouraging.

Here’s how Donald Trump responded to the announcement from North Korea:

As noted by the AP, “The North’s decisions were made in a meeting of the ruling party’s full Central Committee which had convened to discuss a “new stage” of policies.”

North Korea has a history of making proposal for concessions, and then going back on those proposals. Even so, Donald Trump appears to be closer than past US Presidents to bringing about a possible resolution to the ongoing tension on the Korean Peninsula, rather than kicking the can down the road like Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama did.

No one knows the outcome of these upcoming talks, but one thing is abundantly obvious. That is the reality that a ‘leader’ who puts his country first and is prepared to back up his comments will normally get better results than a ‘leader’ with no substance — I resist the temptation to put a name to that comment — but I would hazard a guess that the name is not really necessary.

What all Canadians want to know: Will Turdeau be there wearing fuchsia and gold silk pajamas and a stick on Fu-Manchu mustache, carrying a six pack of water for Mr. Trump, taking selfies with the grownups? Will Chrystia Freeland be there trying to kick start the Korean War? Canadians have an important part to play on the world stage – that’s why we have a failed drama teacher as our prime minister.
