Month in Review

It was quite a week for North Korea watchers. With U.S. President Donald Trump’s shock decision on Thursday to withdraw from a planned summit with Kim Jong Un, it felt to many that a return to the days of “fire and fury” was all but inevitable.

But an uncharacteristically diplomatic statement from DPRK official Kim Kye Gwan followed, and as the weekend progressed it appeared more and more likely that the June 12 meeting may be back on, with a surprise inter-Korean summit and the news that a U.S. delegation had begun working-level talks with the North Koreans on the northern side of Panmunjom.

Hoping to parse the break-neck developments on the Korean peninsula, NK News CEO Chad O’Carroll, Managing Editor Oliver Hotham, and Senior Correspondent Dagyum Ji gathered on Monday for a rapid response podcast.

About the podcast: The “North Korea News Podcast” is a weekly podcast hosted exclusively by NK News, covering all things DPRK: from news to extended interviews with leading experts and analysts in the field and insight from our very own journalists.
