Why Kim Yo Jong isn’t shutting the door to diplomacy with the U.S. just yet
North Korea may be calling another summit "useless," but it's still open to talks that meet Pyongyang's demands
Kim Yo Jong is back in the spotlight. This time, she’s on a mission to clarify North Korea’s stance on dialogue with the United States — all while speculation circulates that an eleventh-hour meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un could actually take place.
Pyongyang’s provocations towards Seoul have largely eased up after North Korea blew up the inter-Korean joint-liaison office in June. Then last week, the Trump administration made numerous assertions that’s still hoping to resolve nuclear issues through talks with Pyongyang.
