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.
