On April 11, U.S. local time, South Korean President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump held their seventh summit meeting, their first since the breakdown in talks between North Korea and the U.S. at the Hanoi summit. In their latest meeting, Trump said progress had been made in regards to North Korea, while hinting a follow-up meeting with Kim Jong-un, while Moon agreed with his assessment and also mentioned the possibility of a fourth inter-Korean summit. The situation on the Korean Peninsula has once again become more fluid with the latest summit, with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un also looking to engage in diplomacy following his appearance at his country's Supreme People's Assembly meeting. Rumors are abound that North Korea may be arranging a summit with Russia, while possibilities have also been raised of Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to North Korea, as the two countries mark the one-year anniversary of Kim Jong-un's first-ever visit to China. In this week's edition of 'Foreign Correspondents', we sit down with our panel of journalists to talk more about the progress made at the seventh South Korea-U.S. summit and the outlook of peninsular affairs moving forward.
