DW's Brent Goff talks to Hannes Mosler, Korea expert at Berlin's Free University, about the US President's decision that caught the world off guard.
The Trump-Putin summit, like the US president's recent talks with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, is expected to yield few tangible results. But there's one uncontroversial issue where real progress could be made.
Donald Trump spoke positively of a reportedly discordant emergency meeting with 28 other NATO countries. He suggested that allies had caved in after expressing his displeasure over low levels of defense spending.
The US president listed the EU, China and Russia as economic "foes" in an interview. He also said he has a "big problem" with Germany over its contributions to NATO as well as its pipeline deal with Russia.
Both sides have met on the Korean border and agreed to resume the search for the remains of Americans missing from the 1950-53 conflict. The US recently brought in scores of coffins to ready the soldiers' return.
