The highly anticipated meeting with the U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea Chairman of the Workers' Party Kim Jong Un came to an abrupt end with neither party willing to compromise on a denuclearization agreement. Both mainstream media outlets in the U.S.
and South Korea have reported that the talks fell apart due to ongoing efforts of North Korea to retain its nuclear weapons. The analyst further emphasized that if South Korea had known about other testing locations and did not disclose them to the U.S. prior to the discussions, it could worsen the relationship between the U.S.
and South Korea as well in the near-term. "It's a serious issue. Whether South Korea knew about the testing sites and did not disclose them or simply did not know about the testing sites at all, it's a serious issue," the think tank said, suggesting that the probability of South Korea being unaware about the testing sites is higher.
Throughout February, President Trump stated that the U.S. was not in a rush to land a deal with North Korea and that it did not intend to prematurely remove any sanctions on the regime. Prior to the Hanoi meeting, President Trump essentially threw an ultimatum to North Korea and said that the U.S.
was not interested in a deal unless it involved complete denuclearization. During a call with South Korea President Moon Jae-in, President Trump reportedly stated that he will continue to lead the discussions with North Korea in the months to come.
