Donald Trump to meet Kim Jong Un: experts react

Is the North Korean leader sincere in his desire for talks, and how much will actually be achieved?

Never before has a sitting U.S President sat down for talks with a DPRK leader, and with Pyongyang's apparent willingness to discuss denuclearization, it feels like we're a long way away from the "fire and fury" of 2017.
