Sources: U.S. and North Korea could potentially exchange liason officers


The United States and North Korea appear to be trying to make a diplomatic breakthrough.

Sources with knowledge of the discussions say the two countries are talking about potentially exchanging liason officers. Such a move could begin the establishment of so-called “interest sections.”

An agreement to do just that was made in 1994. The U.S. went as far as to sign a lease for space in North Korea.

North Korea callled it off a year later.

This comes as President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un prepare for their second summit in Vietnam.

That’s set for later this month.
