President Donald Trump sets the date and venue for his historic summit with North Korea's Kim Jong-un. Is peace a real possibility? DW's Brent Goff talks to Korea expert Aidan Foster Carter and DW Washington correspondent Clare Richardson.
In the wake of the US-North Korea summit, South Korean democrats are meeting to discuss the future of defense whereas conservatives are calling the outcome a one-sided victory for Pyongyang. Fabian Kretschmer reports.
After a 65-year freeze between their countries, North Korea's Kim Jong Un and the US's Donald Trump have agreed to be reasonable with each other. Of course, DW's Frank Sieren writes, China played an important role.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has pledged "complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula" in the joint text issued at the summit with Donald Trump. In turn, the US promises "security guarantees" for Pyongyang.
Trump and Kim can both consider the summit a great success. North Korea will abandon its nuclear program for security guarantees. But a real relaxation of tensions takes time and above all trust, says Alexander Freund.
