VOA: US, South Korea Presidents to Discuss Threat to Scrap Trump-Kim Summit22 May 2018 | 08:21 | FOCUS News Agency
Moon Jae-in, during Tuesday's scheduled two hours of talks, is to try to reassure Trump that next month's encounter with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un can lead to a historic breakthrough.
"I suspect President Trump has some tough questions for President Moon that he'd prefer to ask privately, given the lack of clarity on what the North Koreans will agree to — and the latest chess move by the North Koreans to threaten to cancel the June 12 summit," said Jean Lee, the Korea Center program director at the Wilson Center.
Trump, according to officials in the U.S. and abroad, has been questioning his aides and foreign leaders about whether he should proceed with going to Singapore to meet Kim.
Some officials in Washington, speaking on condition of not being named, also blame South Korean officials for initially overselling to Trump the willingness of the North Korean leader to denuclearize.
