Trump's Diplomacy

The final declaration of summit between Donald Trump and president of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, can be considered very positive and, in this sense, meeting has been a success. North Korea is an unstable dictatorship in foreign policy, strongly nuclearizadaed, and in recent years has conducted numerous ballistic missile tests in a growing challenge to US and its neighbors.

The prewar hostility of just a few months ago has disappeared, including personal threats between two leaders. The four points signed by Trump and Kim ratify beginning of this new era between two countries but without assuming concrete commitments. The normalization of diplomatic relations between United States and North Korea; The exchange of prisoners of war; The denuclearization of Korean peninsula and signing of a peace treaty between two Koreas that definitively put an end to war waged between 1950 and 1953 are goals that both Presidents now leave in hands of diplomats. In any case, statement — sounding in words, minimal in details — would not have been possible without thaw starring President of South Korea's Moon Jae-in, and China's mediation, during Winter Olympics.

It contrasts this diplomatic achievement of President of United States — and how comfortable it has been seen with North Korean dictator — with confrontations lived by leader with leaders of or six most industrialized countries in world — which are also democracies — During G7 summit last weekend in Canada. If Kim Jong-un has bridged, in front of his G7 allies, he has dug a deep moat and accused Canada's prime minister of lying. Trump gives impression to be better understood in face to face with authoritarian regimes than with representatives of democracies. But se are real partners of United States.
