Newspaper says country ‘boiling like a crucible’ as Kim Jong-un arrives in Hanoi
As Kim Jong-un prepared for his second meeting with Donald Trump to discuss denuclearisation, the North Korean media were playing up the prospects for a breakthrough, describing the country as “boiling like a crucible” with expectation.
Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the ruling Workers’ party of Korea, devoted its entire front page to Kim’s arrival in Hanoi the previous day, replete with colour photos designed to burnish his credentials as an emerging global leader. In the accompanying story, prominence was given to the “enthusiastic” greeting Kim had been given by the Vietnamese people.
While North Korea has repeatedly signalled it is willing to give up its nuclear weapons, the conditions for that to happen may be too high a price to pay for the US and its allies.
