US Sending Bad Message to North Korea

 US Sending Bad Message to North Korea US Sending Bad Message to North Korea

Former UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, believes that Washington’s walking away from the landmark Iran nuclear deal will hurt US reliability in the critical talks planned with North Korea next month. “Can I trust the US president? This may be the first question by North Korea’s leader,” ISNA quoted Ban, citing his interview with CNBC.  With the stated aim of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, US President Donald Trump administration has scheduled talks with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. Planned to take place in Singapore on June 12, the summit would be the first ever between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader. Trump’s decision to withdraw from the international nuclear agreement does not set a good precedent for credibility and that will matter to Kim during the upcoming nuclear talks, the former South Korean diplomat told CNBC on Wednesday. Ban added that he had long urged the Trump administration against leaving the JCPOA, but his appeals fell on deaf ears.
