North Koreans have 'no idea' of Trump, Kim summit

North Koreans
Ordinary North Koreans have no idea a major summit between Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump is being planned, and the reason is nuclear weapons, according to a Japanese journalist.


Jiro Ishimaru, founder of Asia Press, said he interviewed three North Koreans still in the country, Radio Free Asia reported Monday.

Not a single North Korean he interviewed was aware the North had agreed to the summits, partly because there have been no official statements in Pyongyang media confirming the latest developments, Ishimaru said.

Any announcement of the summits could work against the North Korean government's legitimacy, bolstered by its claims of being a nuclear weapons state.

As part of his offer of talks to the United States and South Korea, Kim had offered denuclearization as an option.

"It is not easy because in 2013 the Korean Workers' Party laid out the 10 principles of its leadership," Ishimaru said, adding the attainment of the status of a nuclear weapons state was one of the principles.

In North Korea, the state has also been instructing its citizens to not let down their guard, according to sources in the country.
