US president calls North Korean dictator ‘a great leader’ as talks begin in Vietnam
The US president is expected to push North Korea’s regime leader to abandon his nuclear ambitions, while dangling the possibility of the nation becoming one of the world’s “great economic powers” if he were to relinquish his weapons.
The North has refused such demands unless the US would be willing to remove its military forces from South Korea. The disagreement has led to a continuation of severe sanctions against the Kim regime and, at times, tense confrontations between the two leaders.
