(Seoul) Donald Trump has proposed to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to board the US presidential plane Air Force One.
According to this film, titled Trump takes over the world, The former US president took the opportunity “astonishing even the most experienced diplomats”, which Kim rejected.
“Matthew Pottinger, Asia’s adviser to the former Republican president, gave President Trump the flight back to Kim in one of the Air Force,” he told the BBC, which announced the weekend.
“The president knew that Kim Hanoi had arrived after a several-day train journey through China. The president said, ‘I can take you home in two hours if you want.’ Kim refused.”
Had the North Korean leader accepted the offer, his presence on the US president’s official plane in North Korean airspace – and part of his entourage – would have raised many questions. Security concerns.
Kim is scheduled to accompany Donald Trump to his first summit in Singapore in 2018 on a flight he borrowed from China, and Beijing is determined to keep North Korea in its sphere of influence. The intermediate position between its borders is where American soldiers are stationed in the south.
At the Singapore Summit, Donald Trump showed Kim the interior of his presidential car – nicknamed the $ 1.5 million Cadillac “The Beast” – in a demonstration of their approval.
After exchanging threats and intimidation of nuclear war, Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump made an extraordinary agreement that marked the meetings as historically significant. But no progress has been made on the thorny issue of Pyongyang’s nuclear and ballistic programs. Negotiations have stalled since the failure of the second summit between the two at the end of February 2019 in Hanoi.
One reason for this stalemate is the lack of consensus on what North Korea should do in exchange for lifting international sanctions against it.
Kim called the United States “North Korea’s” greatest enemy last month, saying Washington’s policy on Pyongyang would “never change,” “whoever is in power is United.”
North Korean official media have not yet named the new US president, Joe Biden.
