Non ce n’est pas le premier avril. Le leader nord-coréen a proposé un sommet à Donald Trump, durant lequel la question de la dénucléarisation de la Corée du Nord serait évoqué.
Malgré les dépenses en investissements, les seuls qui désirent vraiment la réunification de la Corée sont d’une part les familles séparées des deux côtés de la Péninsule Coréenne mais surtout les autorités américaines qui rêvent de stationner à la frontière chinoise. Quant aux sud-coréens, une réunification serait synonyme de problèmes et c’est pourquoi je suis convaincu que les autorités sud-coréennes ne veulent d’aucune manière envisager une réunification avec la Corée du Nord.

North Korea’s ruling-party congress on Monday announced a new title for Kim Jong Un — party chairman. Kim Jong-un had already been head of the party, but with the title of first secretary.
Officially bringing more people into his inner circle, Kim Jong-un filled two vacancies on the powerful Presidium of the party’s central committee. Senior party official Choe Ryong Hae regained a seat that he had lost; once considered Kim Jong Un’s No. 2, he had been briefly banished to a rural collective farm last year for re-education.
Premier Pak Pong Ju was also named to the Presidium. Other members are Kim Jong Un himself; Kim Yong Nam, who as parliament leader is the country’s nominal head of state; and Hwang Pyong So, the top political officer of the Korean People’s Army. Kim Yong Nam, 88, stayed on despite speculation from North Korea-watchers that he might lose his position because of his age.
