What the U.S.-North Korea Negotiations Might Look Like, Simulated (HBO)

The historic summit between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un is over and one of the few substantive points to come out of their joint statement is for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and a “high-level” North Korean official to lead, “follow-on negotiations.”

They’re supposed to occur at the “earliest possible date,” and drive toward a blandly-stated goal: “implement the outcomes” of the Singapore meeting.

What do these early rounds of diplomacy look like for negotiators on both sides? To figure this out, VICE News asked four experienced American diplomats to simulate a real negotiation.

“The North Koreans don’t negotiate the way we do,” explained Gov. Bill Richardson, a former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. In our simulation, he’s representing North Korea. “They don’t believe in concessions or compromises.”

Joining Gov. Richardson to represent the North Korean side was Ambassador Joseph DeTrani — who, in real life, served as Special Envoy to North Korea for the six-party talks starting in 2003.

On the other side, Ambassador Bonnie Jenkins, a former coordinator for threat reduction programs at the State Department, negotiated for the U.S. So did Ambassador Robert Gallucci, who was the chief negotiator with North Korea during the 1994 nuclear crisis.
They showed us that when it comes to denuclearizing a peninsula, every word matters.

‘Highly unproductive to threaten N.Korea’ – Former US envoy to the UN

Donald Trump says his much-anticipated summit with North Korea on the 12th of June might be delayed. His comment came during a meeting with the South Korean president in Washington.

RT talked to a former U.S. envoy to the United Nations Bill Richardson who’s negotiated with North Korea before. He says that it’s highly damaging to make any threats, especially when it’s so close to the summit between the two leaders.
