Former US diplomat: Don’t ‘disown everything that Trump did’ on North Korea

Joseph Yun, the former special representative for North Korea policy, hopes for more diplomacy in the future

A former top U.S. diplomat is urging President Joe Biden to examine Donald Trump’s successes on North Korea but also learn from past U.S. mistakes. 

On Wednesday, Joseph Y. Yun — the former U.S. special representative for North Korea policy and a former ambassador to Malaysia — said that there were “many things that Trump did right” when dealing with Pyongyang, and that Biden’s new team of foreign policy aides are well-equipped for an American repivot to Asia.
