▶ U.S. WANTS NUCLEAR FREEZE AS A START TO TALKS
North Korea and the U.S. have been showing signs of flexibility since the historic encounter between its leaders at the DMZ last month. Pyeongyang has reorganized its negotiating team around its foreign ministry. Washington is reportedly considering security guarantees as its "corresponding measures" to Pyeongyang instead of sanctions relief along with a possible nuclear freeze deal to halt the production of new nuclear material. Some voice concerns that a nuclear freeze may amount to a tacit recognition that North Korea is a nuclear state. We are joined by Kim Jina, Research Fellow at the Korea Institute for Defense Analyses, to take a deep dive into the latest developments.
