North Korea's release of 3 US detainees

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

North Korea has released three US citizens detained for several months.

A welcome event, and perhaps also a pre-condition to the Kim-Trump summit, but far from consequential as far as the denuclearisation question is concerned

North Korea dropped its byungjin policy in favour of a single focus on economic development
