North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has finally broken his silence on what he plans to bring to the table during his summits with the South Korean and US presidents, and it does not have a whole lot to do with tossing out his hard-won nuclear arsenal. Instead, Mr Kim appears to be manoeuvring towards his own big “get” – the chance to sit down with Donald Trump on an essentially equal basis as the head of a nuclear-armed nation. The end of North Korea’s nuclear program, meanwhile, is not looking any closer than it was before. Ending weeks of ominous silence from Pyongyang, Mr Kim laid out the new strategy at a meeting on Friday of his ruling party’s Central Committee, that suspends underground nuclear tests and test-launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles. He also said the country’s nuclear test site at Punggye-ri, already believed to be essentially inoperable, will be closed and “dismantled”.

There is no dearth of rumours and conjectures pertaining to North Korea and its 30-something leader Kim Jong-un, given the highly secretive nature of the regime. Now an audio forensic expert from rival South Korea claims Kim could be suffering from kidney problems. Cho Dong-uk, a professor at Chungnam State University, told a local daily that Kim's recent New Year's address indicates that his kidneys are not functioning as well as his other internal organs. Analysing Kim's speech from a medical perspective, Cho paid close attention to the vibration, noise and amplitude of the dictator's pronunciation of several consonant sounds. The analysis included jitters, shimmer, noise-to-harmonics ratio and voice "energy", added Cho. "One cannot judge the functions of Kim's internal organs using such an analysis, but according to the results of his New Year's performance, one can understand that the kidney functions are weaker than those of other organs," the professor was quoted as saying. In … [Read more...] about Is North Korea’s Kim Jong-un having kidney problems?
President Donald Trump said Saturday that he would be open to speaking with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "I always believe in talking," Trump said Saturday when asked if he would speak to Kim by phone. "We have a very firm stance — look, our stance, you know what it is. We're very firm, but ... absolutely I would do that." When asked whether there would be no prerequisites, the president responded: "That's not what I said at all." Trump, speaking to reporters after a meeting at Camp David, claimed credit for announced talks between North and South Korea that are to include discussions about the PyeongChang Winter Olympics. "Right now they're talking Olympics. It's a start. It's a big start," Trump said. "If I weren't involved, they wouldn't be talking about Olympics right now." Trump has made similar statements on Twitter this week. There has been speculation that Kim used the prospect of talks to drive a wedge between South Korea and the United States.
