Less than four months ago, U.S. President Donald Trump briefly set foot in North Korea, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to do so. This was the third meeting between Trump and Kim in twelve months, an unimaginable development for Americans and Koreans alike. Ambassador Joseph Yun, former U.S. Representative for North Korea Policy (2016-18), will discuss whether these Trump-Kim meetings are just photo-ops or if they could lead to an agreement that will denuclearize North Korea and thus change the Korean Peninsula and the region.
