Kim Jong Un sees himself in a “position of strength” ahead of second summit: expert

The Brookings Institution's Jung Pak says Trump is underprepared for complex negotiations

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un heads into an upcoming summit with U.S. President Donald Trump believing he is at a distinct advantage, Jung H. Pak, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, warned in a recent interview with NK News.

Pak, a former CIA senior official, said she is skeptical that the U.S. President will go into his second meeting with the DPRK leader well-prepared to navigate the complexity of the denuclearization issue.
