Trump greets freed American detainees

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

North Korea released three US detainees as a goodwill gesture prior to the Kim-Trump summit in June

A welcome move, possibly a precondition to the summit, but a far shot from being consequential as far as the real question (denuclearisation)

North Korea signalled the desire to replace its dual focus on the nuclear weapons programme and the economy with a policy shift towards economic development only.
