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 afterglow of the latest Kim-Moon summit, negotiations between the US and North Korea appear to be back on track. However, Pyongyang won't accept anything less than a formal end to the war, says DW's Martin Fritz.
