Today, for the first time in history, the leaders of North Korea and the USA met with a handshake. They both agreed to denuclearise the Korean peninsula.
But for me this seems ridiculous. I suspect North Korea is confident enough to engage in peace talks because they are closer than they've ever been to a viable nuclear deterrent, which would prevent an American invasion and thus secure their survival... certainly a reason for Pyongyang to be happy for once.
But is this correct?
Does North Korea have a viable nuclear deterrent? If not, how close are they? Are we really to believe North Korea wants a denuclearised Korean peninsula?
