President Trump’s Stunningly Effective North Korea Policy Leaves Professional Diplomatic Corps Gobsmacked…

The statement tonight by South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong is so jaw-dropping in significance it has left the professional diplomatic apparatus stunned.

A year of targeted and strategic geopolitical policy execution by President Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley has resulted in North Korean leader Kim Jong-un accepting denuclearization and requesting a meeting with President Trump to achieve terms therein.

Yeah, HO-LEE-CATS is an understatement.  The possibility of a willingly denuclearized Korean peninsular is such an astounding policy victory; it is difficult to conceptualize.  Here’s the statement from South Korea’s Chung Eui-yong:

“Good evening, today I had the privilege of briefing President Trump on my recent visit to Pyongyang, North Korea.  I’d like to thank President Trump, the vice-president and his wonderful national security team, including my close friend General McMaster.” 

“I thanked President Trump that his leadership, and his maximum pressure policy together with international solidarity, brought us to this juncture.  I expressed President Moon Jae-in’s personal gratitude for President Trump’s leadership.”

“I told President Trump that in our meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he is committed to denuclearization. Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests; he understands that the routine joint military exercises between the Republic of Korea and the United States must continue.  And he expressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible.”

“President Trump appreciated the briefing and said he would meet Kim Jong-un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization.”

“The Republic of Korea along with the United States, Japan and our many partners around the world, remain fully and resolutely committed to the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsular.” 

“Along with President Trump we are optimistic about continuing a diplomatic process to test the possibility of a peaceful resolution.   The Republic of Korea, The United States and our partners stand together in insisting that we not repeat the mistakes of the past; and that the pressure will continue until North Korea matches it’s words with concrete actions.  Thank You.”   (link)

Korea Times – North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has expressed willingness to meet U.S. President Donald Trump for talks over denuclearization, South Korean officials visiting Washington said, Friday.

In response, Trump said he would like to meet him by May, they said.

National Security Office chief Chung Eui-yong, one of President Moon Jae-in’s envoys to Pyongyang who is now visiting Washington, said in a press briefing at the White House that he delivered such messages of Kim to Trump.

Kim also said he was “committed to denuclearization” and would “refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests,” Chung said. (link)

      I was in charge of the relocation of US forces from the DMZ to a new base we were building south of Seoul. My job was negotiating with the Koreans over the construction since they were paying for it. I was made aware early on that “When you have an agreement in Korea, you are just beginning the negotiation”. Negotiating is a blood sport over there and most Americans were very poor at it. I expect this effort will take a long time and there will be fits and starts. I also expect our President to do quite well since he knows the art of the deal. I’m reminded of a tall building I once drove by in Seoul. High on the building was the name “Trump”….. This isn’t his first rodeo in Korea..

      I really can’t imagine what they’re gonna do. What can Kim and his top level people do, if there’s unification? They can’t just keep living “in the style to which they’ve become accustomed.” They can’t be allowed any governmental authority. And the NoKos are a nearly permanently damaged people, due to malnutrition, physical and psychological abuse, etc. They’re obviously very hard workers to keep going even under the awful conditions imposed upon them, but what can SoKo and the rest of EA do with/for them that won’t create massive problems somewhere else? I think the best that can be achieved at the moment is denuclearization and some form of defense security agreement that would allow NoKo to spend more on infrastructure and development for its citizens, rather than pouring virtually its entire GDP into its military and the Kims. We thought cold war eastern Europe was bleak–NoKo is a whole ‘nother level!

    Continuing with our discussion on the last Presidential thread where I posted the ‘leaks’ of what the message was from KJU (a letter from the dictator to the President) that was published in the Chinese owned SCMP, and the speculation if China was behind the leaks, there seems to be further evidence to suggest it was so.

    KJU, after the Olympics has instructed the executives of the Workers Party to hold mandatory lectures on KJU’s new plan for reunification, jettisoning his father’s plan and touting KJU’s plan as a soon to be realized project, a federal reunification of the Korean Peninsula.

    The model? It is explicitly based on China’s ‘one country, two systems’ formula, that Deng Xiaoping put forward to PM Thatcher as the constitutional basis for the retrocession of Hong Kong (and Macau from the Portuguese) to Chinese rule. Essentially, it meant there was only one China, yet Hong Kong and Macau could retain their own economic (financial and trade), legal and administrative systems, while the rest of China uses the socialism with Chinese characteristics system. Security and national defense of course is on the ‘one country’ side of the equation. The deal was given 50 years (from 1997-2047) for the transition when China’s socialist system will then prevail. Needless to say, under Emperor Xi, that autonomy has been significantly and persistently eroded.

    This is Kim’s plan. DPRK is China and the ROK is Hong Kong in this scenario. Kim is Deng and (he thinks) the President is Thatcher.

    Now that I have an idea of where this is heading (from the NK side), the ‘concessions’ KJU has made and the personal eagerness to meet the US President to ‘talk’ makes sense.

    This fantasy will not last long as it bumps into reality and it reveals the fundamental misunderstanding by both China and NK of how the US works and thinks.

        I see the China hand behind this. Kong Xuanyou did not meet with KJU as reported (?) after the 19th Party Congress communist courtesy call, but I am now certain this strategy was laid out to Kim.

        The DPRK has openly said at their Workers Party mandatory meetings now underway throughout NK after the Olympics, that Kim’s federation (reunification) plan is based on China’s ‘one country, two systems’ formula. (I just read the docs this morning).

        In their minds, taking the long view, they see parallels. China at that time was poor, its economy in a shambles and there were significant threats to CCP authority. Hong Kong, a British colony (NK sees SK as a US colony), was an economic miracle and trade dynamo. The main objective of Deng was reunification (NK’s primary objective and preservation of his rule as the embodiment of the NK Communist Party), and Britain was not going to risk war over ‘the question leftover from history”. Deng instituted reforms, opened up China ‘to the outside world’, liberalized the economy (thereby strengthening the Party/State) and ramped up united front tactics in Hong Kong in the lead up to the Sino-British Joint Declaration of 1984. Unfortunately the ’50 years no change’ guarantee under Xi is being consistently abrogated.

        It is important to understand their strategy and longterm objectives (and mindset) in any negotiations, as well as how risible is their perception of reality. Too bad for them they don’t understand the US. This gives us the advantage in diplomacy. We already have the advantage militarily and economically.

        Yes, differences. But then when did communists have a firm grasp of history.

    The reaction by the democrat media machine is so predictable. They are already trying to set an expectation for this to be a one and done meeting and if not they will pronounce the whole initiative a failure if an agreement is not reached in May.

    The meeting in May will end in Trump fashion, with a path forward frame work, and would be interesting if the one outcome was an actually signed peace treaty or plans to sign a peace treaty formally ending the Korean Conflict that includes the framework. Reunification will have to come later and very carefully because China is not so keen to have two democracies sitting directly on their borders (i.e. Taiwan and a Unified Korean Republic).

    China has to remain in the background since their official position is that they have no control over widdle Kim. They may emerge and take a lead in this if talks are set up to include them. So, they could make this happen or they could derail it.

    If I may be permitted to repeat my comment from yesterday:

    I will be disappointed if Presidents Trump and Xi have not agreed in principle to create a unified, neutral, non-nuclear Korea. This would be in everyone’s interest, would recognize China’s increased economic and military power in the region, and might even give us some leverage on other critical issues, e.g. the South China Sea. Of course, the devil is in the details, but it is at least plausible that both North and South leaders have been told that this is their future.

    China likes to have North Korea as a ‘buffer’ between the American ally South Korea and its own border. A unified Korea would have to be militarily neutral, something like Finland, and participate in both the US and Chinese economic spheres. Its neutrality could be guaranteed by a treaty among China, the US, Russia, and Japan. Kim will be happy in a villa in Switzerland.

    I think we have just seen the next step in this process. /LEJ

  42. “There is no way that President Trump can be ready, by May, to have a high stakes negotiation on denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula, it’s just impossible. … You can’t wing it.” – Samantha Vinograd reacts to Trump agreeing to meet with Kim Jong Un

    Ms Vinograd shows 2 things with this statement. 1) She clearly doesn’t understand that Pres Trump is not negotiating. The terms of the surrender of Kim Jong Un have always been very straightforward: no nukes and in exchange he won’t be bombed into oblivion. 2) She is trying to minimize the achievement by claiming that Pres Trump is “winging it”. This is the result of a well thought out brilliant foreign policy that required cooperation from previously uncooperative countries: Russia and China. Remember the UN resolution where they all voted with the US to condemn N Korea? How many times had that happened before? I know the answer: never.

    I know I should not expect anything from the enemedia regarding respect for Pres Trump’s success for us. But to listen to them say “he can’t” and “he won’t” when he already has just boils my blood. No other president, period, has been able to accomplish this and they have all tried (since Kim’s grandfather). Of course the Nobel committee would never think of Pres Trump as a recipient, but if this doesn’t qualify then nothing does.
