So a much anticipated and talked about summit meeting between US president Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un would kick off in a few hours, on 12th June. Just a few months back, the hawkish statements from both sides was making the possibility of a dangerus war quite likely. So, the talks are a surprise. It would not be prudent to expect too much from the talks, as much is at stake and demands from both sides could be a bit tricky to balance. To add to it, China would like to influence the talks and see that North Korea possibly does not swings too much towards United States. I am keeping my fingers crossed. By the way, from the reports, it seems that both the North Korean dictator and US President are enjoying their Singapore stay.

People need to realize that just one meeting will not solve all. A lot of work and talk needs to take place over a lengthy period of time to come up with a solution. Trump will be bashed by the left if this one single meeting does not result in something monumental, but that kind of bashing will be ignored by many.

I think there are many who will be anxiously watching these two. I just hope they don't start trying to outsmart each other.

This was certainly an opportunity for both countries to size each other up on a personal level.
