Overpromised, underdelivered? Moon hopes to save his inter-Korean legacy
Moon has one year left to shift status quo with North Korea, but needs help from the U.S. to make it happen
South Korean President Moon Jae-in is off to Washington today, where he hopes to convince U.S. President Joe Biden to stop dilly-dallying and talk to North Korea.
After finally concluding its months-long policy review on North Korea, the Biden administration said that it will pursue a “calibrated, practical approach” toward North Korea, likely something in between a Trumpian “grand bargain” and Obama’s “strategic patience.”
The administration will also reportedly build on the 2018 Singapore statement, in which North Korean leader Kim Jong Un pledged his “firm and unwavering commitment” to denuclearization.
