Trump announced the second session in his State of the Union address earlier in February.

“As part of a bold new diplomacy, our historic push for peace on the Korean Peninsula,” Trump said, we continue to be at the time. “Our hostages come home, nuclear testing has stopped, and it was not to launch a rocket, in more than 15 months.”

“If I were President of the United States, was not elected, we would now, in my opinion, are caught up in a major war with North Korea,” Trump. “A lot of work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong-Un is a good one.”

Here is what to expect of the coming meeting.

Nuclear tests and denuclearization

Denuclearization is likely to be in the center of their meeting, the Vice allowed Robert B. Murrett, professor of practice, public administration and international affairs at Syracuse University, told Fox News.

“A lot of progress has been since last summer,” he said, but it is not moving forward pointed out that the denuclearization of, “as quickly as hoped.”

While Trump and Kim, under a document signed promising work in the direction of a “complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” during the first summit, Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, of the doubt whether the so-called hermit Kingdom, “in fact, its nuclear weapons and production capacity,” he said during a hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee at the end of January.

“Our assessment is supported by the observations of any activity, not with complete denuclearization,” he said at the time.

“We hope very much to be as successful [on the second summit]. I’m not in a hurry for speed. We want to not only test.”

Speaking from the Rose Garden in the middle of February, Trump also indicated that he did not push for full denuclearization, as long as North Korea agreed to stop testing weapons of mass destruction.

“We hope very much to be as successful [on the second summit]. I’m not in a hurry for speed. We want to not only test,” he said.

This means that there are expectations for the second summit on “concrete, detailed, current design plans,” about denuclearization, Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul, South Korea, told NPR.

A Peace Treaty?

There is growing speculation that Trump may provide an announcement of peace, and a formal end of the Korean war, when he convince Kim can commit to denuclearization.

The Korean war ended in 1953 with an armistice, essentially a cease-fire was signed, North Korea, China and the 17-nation, U.S.-led United Nations command, to be replaced by a formal peace Treaty. But both sides settled deeper and deeper into the Cold war, the enemy is marked hostilities by occasional outbreaks of violence.

The conflict in Korea is technically America’s was the longest.

But a peace Treaty, even decades later, could have significant benefits for North Korea, possibly easing the economic sanctions on the country and leads to economic growth, for starters.

“The trade is part of the [talks],” Murrett said, adding, Kim is, has expressed interest in “bring your economy in the 21st century.”

A contract could also lead to regional peace “with South Korea, but also wider in the context of East Asia, Japan and Russia,” he added.

However, a possible contract “is not mentioned, only the United States and North Korea,” Murrett.

While Trump could technically one-sided, the end of the Korean war proclaim, he can not close by itself, a real peace Treaty. China, and possibly a representative of the U. N. command would have to participate, as South Korea would. In addition, the U.S. Senate would ratify the Treaty.

Does Trump deserve credit for the upcoming second summit? Murrett thinks he’s doing — at least in part.

“At any time if you have strict communication between the two countries with important issues, the leaders deserve recognition,” he said. “It’s a good intersection of leadership between the United States and Asia.”

Murrett added, he“ praises of any political leadership with current or potential enemies.”
