Listen: Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, North Korea discussed on Lee Mathews
"Okay. Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong met face to face for the very first time. Bill Zimper, what is on the agenda for this meeting, and this meeting has conclude? Okay. Yeah. It include a ninety minute face to face second. Which was about twice the length that had been allotted and then a three and a half hour session involving delegations from both Russia and North Korea talking about a variety of issues, and it ended with smiles and waves Vladimir Putin, literally waving goodbye to the motorcade of Kim Jong UN as the session broke up, and according to MIR Putin, they talked about a number of things and had an open discussion about everything from sanctions to denuclearization to. Yes. The United States. So Vladimir Putin broke it down to this. He said that Kim Jong is willing to denuclearize North Korea with some conditions number one a security guarantee and number two some sanctions relief as well. So here's the question. The big question leaves his good news or bad news for the good news that may be flat. Amir Putin can get. Kim Jong UN on track to denuclearization when others couldn't. Or is it bad news that we have to adverse seem to have gotten along very, well and seemed to be on the same page. I also know Putin, and he doesn't I don't think he goes to the bathroom without there being some sort of political lean to it or slant to it. I I'm wondering if he wants to be able to show the world, see, I did the Trump could not do let's have vodka. Yes. And I think that might have something to do with it as well. And that was a very good accent. I think you're right. If Ladimir Putin is now saying, I'm I'm I'm the guy in control here. And maybe he wants to say to the United States want to let me carry the ball on this one. I might be able to get it across the goal line when you could not, and there are certainly some political geopolitical implications in that as well. So this will be an interesting one to follow along here. I'm sure that North Korea is pushing Russia to support them on the idea of some sanctions relief because they talk about things including pipelines going from Russia into North Korea through the Korean peninsula to South Korea oil and gas pipelines as well as infrastructure projects. Well, none of that can happen without sanctions relief as well. So there are still some chapters to be written in this book. But this certainly was in interesting turn in this one and the Chinese of they've been pretty quiet about this. They let any reaction out from under secrecy. We haven't heard any reaction from China as of yet, however bladder. Amir Putin is on his way to Beijing where he will next take part in the belt road forum which gets underway actually starting today and bladder Putin is the featured speaker there, so I'm sure he'll be consulting Jianping there. And it's also interesting there has been no reaction from the White House. As of yet, the president has been very active on Twitter this morning, but nothing so far about this summit in Vladivostok. I mentioned they're just waiting to see what's going to happen because I don't I don't know that there's anything more here than than Putin trying to make political hay out of it. I don't know that they came to any conclusions or anything, but thank you for the update. From your perspective builds them for from twenty four seven."
