The US cannot rule out military conflict with North Korea, the former US ambassador in Seoul has told DW's Brent Goff on "The Day."
North Korea agreed to abolish key missile facilities and close its main nuclear site. Kim Jong Un promised to visit Seoul soon – it would be a North Korean leader's first trip to the South's capital since 1945.
The historic summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was a success — primarily for Pyongyang and Beijing. But there was also a silver lining for Washington.
The US security adviser John Bolton has again accused Russia of meddling in elections, which Russia again denied. Bolton also announced a cut in US funding for the UN.
UN condemnation has followed Pyongyang's claim that it "successfully" test-fired a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan. This latest activity may be a game changer, a former US envoy to Seoul tells DW's Brent Goff.
