Israel Pleased With Planned Meeting Between Trump and North Korean Leadership

Top Israeli official says meeting between Trump and North Korea will have big impact on Iranian nuke program

By |

Surprising everyone who believed he was leading America to war, US President Donald Trump has accepted an invitation to meet with the North Korean leadership.

Trump insisted that the only outcome he'll accept is North Korea's denuclearization.

Last week, the White House confirmed the invitation and said the exact date and location of the meeting are currently being hashed out.

In the meantime, Israel is very much looking forward to such a gathering.

According to MK Michael Oren, who serves as a minister in the Prime Minister's Office, the very fact that North Korea was the one to offer the invitation proves that Trump has won.

And that will have a huge impact on preventing Iran from building and fielding nuclear weapons.

"The Iranians are looking at this meeting very closely," Oren told Israel's 103 FM radio. "They see an American president who doesn’t compromise on the nuclear issue, while North Korea is the one caving in."

Oren noted that Trump's ability to keep enemies guessing was what forced North Korea to back down, and it will have the same effect on Iran.
