  • Donald Trump thanks Kim Jong-un for releasing US prisoners from North Korea
    (Daniel Hurst, Tokyo, 10 May 2018) President Trump has thanked Kim Jong-un for the release of three American prisoners who have begun to describe their detention in North Korea.

The North and the South are experiencing a thaw in relations and a visit by the President of South Korea to North Korea is on the cards. This thaw has huge geopolitical implications. Dr. Leonid Petrov, a visiting Fellow in the […]
