If the meeting happens, it is welcome news.
Last Friday, the U.S. slapped new sanctions on North Korea, targeting 56 vessels, shipping companies, and trade businesses, of which Chinese firms and personnel are involved.
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States", Trump told reporters in a briefing, responding to some of the threats with his own. The maximum pressure campaign must continue until North Korea denuclearizes. "Trump should explore ways to hold talks with North Korea if he wants to avoid armed conflicts with the nuclear-armed North". Pyongyang conducted its biggest and most recent nuclear bomb test in September and its largest and latest missile test in late November.
He added: "The dialogue between the US and [North Korea] is not only China's hope, but the common wish of the worldwide community".
Since his appointment as the U.S. special representative for North Korea policy by the Obama administration in October 2016, Yun has been a key player in implementing United States strategy and dealing with the limited bilateral relations maintained by the two countries.
Yun, a former ambassador to Malaysia, now serves as the special representative for North Korea policy and has served with the foreign service since 1985. "We hope such dialogues can be held at an early date, and that the USA and [North Korea] will work together towards achieving beneficial results through effective dialogues". "Joe Yun is the only senior official left at State who has experience dealing with the complexities of North Korea policy". Now that the North possesses nuclear weapons, it could launch them against those targets using shorter-range artillery or missiles.

The collision happened just after 9:30 a.m. local time when Fegan's SUV attempted to merge onto the highway. Two passengers in the vehicle , including Fegan's five-year-old son, were also hospitalized in the crash.
The advisory has also alerted the industries of North Korea's deceptive shipping practices.
Even if the Trump administration's talk of a bloody nose strategy is merely hot air created to scare Kim Jong-un, such perilous rhetoric, along with implicit threats of using nuclear weapons, could paint President Trump-whose psychology seems to compel him to play the "tough guy"-into a corner, requiring later rash action to save face".
Japan will continue to refuse to take part in any dialogue that would acknowledge North Korea as a nuclear power, the sources said. "Let me tell you, the one that matters is me", he said.
"I'm completely convinced that President Trump and his team reject the policy of containment", Graham told CNN.
We stationed nuclear weapons in these same regions so that it would be clear that no one could overrun our allies without the prompt risk of nuclear retaliation-even if that risked putting us on a slippery slope to general nuclear war.
Beyond the missile threat to the USA homeland, the national security officials pushing for military action believe that if North Korea becomes a full nuclear power, it will proliferate, potentially sharing nuclear and missile technology with states such as Iran, Pakistan and Libya, and non-state actors.
