Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un need the European Union

Tereza Novotná from the EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy and her colleague published the article "Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un need the European Union" in a prestigious academic journal Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.

Much ink has been spilled analyzing the surprising turn of events at the US-North Korea Hanoi summit in late February. Accounts differ as to what happened, or which side overstepped first with its demands. At a late-night post-summit press briefing, North Korea sought to make its position abundantly clear: It would give up the nuclear production facilities in the Yongbyon complex in exchange for the lifting of post-2016 UN sanctions. The United States, on the other hand, has insisted on complete denuclearization before giving in on any sanctions relief.
