We have discussed North Korea a fair bit actually. Their leader, Kim Jong-un has been in office since 2011. He has an interesting personality, and one that particularly jars with that of the US President, Donald Trump.
However, he has been at least outwardly making some movements towards bettering relations with longtime enemy, South Korea. He sent a delegation to the Winter Olympics that were held in South Korea this year. He has agreed to a meeting with South Korean President, Moon Jae-in, in April 2018. He will also be meeting US President Donald Trump soon. As if that wasn’t enough, last week, from March 25th to March 28th, he took his wife on his green and yellow bullet proof train to visit Chinese President, Xi Jinping.
He hasn’t taken a trip abroad since he took office. It is thought that he went to talk to the Chinese President about his upcoming meeting with Donald Trump, and also perhaps to keep his Chinese ally close ahead of this very important meeting.
Stay tuned for more news on clandestine meetings and bullet-proof trains!
