US and North Korea Not on Same Page over Denuclearization Negotiations

  • The relationship between North Korea and the US has turned hostile and tense, just less than a month after the US President Trump expressed hope of opening a new chapter between the two. North Korea accused the US of having a "gangster-like mindset" on Saturday during negotiations over denuclearization, which strikingly contradicts the description of talks as 'productive' by the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The disconnect in the statement reflects the fact that the two nations are not on the same page and that they both view the agreement in different lights.
