At the end of this month, President Trump will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for the second time during his presidency. In advance of the summit, panelists discuss what to expect from this unique diplomatic moment, the prospect of denuclearization negotiations, and the future of U.S. policy toward North Korea.
China is North Korea’s biggest trade partner and arguably has the most leverage on Kim Jong-un’s regime. But while Beijing appears willing to condemn its neighbor’s nuclear developments, analysts say its policies remain focused on stability.
Tech giants ask Congress for a data privacy bill to bypass state laws; Ren Zhengfei considers selling Huawei's 5G technology; North Korean APTs continue attacks on U.S. entities; new California labor law threatens gig economy platforms; and Cloudfare may have provided services to terrorists and drug traffickers.
Russian hackers compromise IoT devices; 8chan knocked offline following El Paso tragedy; North Korea has stolen over $2 billion in cyberattacks; cyber espionage group pilfers files from Venezuelan military; and China’s UNISOC accelerates 5G chip launch.
The Chinese view an expanding North Korean nuclear program as hastening the erosion of American credibility throughout Asia, and eventually contributing to China’s assumption of the role of regional security guarantor.
