  4. Asian Geopolitics TOPIC IN NEWS Many leaders promise fundamental changes in the existing order, but only a few get to have a shot at it. US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un might be among those few. At their much anticipated summit meeting here Tuesday, Trump and Kim Jong-un have begun an unprecedented effort to dismantle a seven- decade-old conflict in the Korean Peninsula. Working together with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Trump and Kim are getting ready to turn Asian geopolitics inside out. It has now turned into an extraordinary tale of turning sworn enemies - Washington and Pyongyang into friends, healing the tragic partition of the Korean Peninsula, and reducing American forward military presence in East Asia. In publicly discussing the prospect of withdrawing American troops from South Korea at some future date when peace prevails in the Peninsula, Trump has set a cat among the Asian pigeons. In hinting at potential American military retrenchment, Trump might compel the region to seek a new balance of power. AMAN SHARMA

  5. Asian Geopolitics TOPIC IN NEWS 'complete, verifiable, irreversible disarmament' VBut it is embedded in a larger political construct about changing the nature of the political relationship between America and North Korea. The first principle in the joint statement talks about commitment of Trump and Kim to establish a new relationship between the two nations. The second principle connects nuclear disarmament to the de-escalation of the larger security dynamic in the Peninsula. It calls for a joint effort to build a 'lasting and stable peace regime'. Trump refused to rise to the bait when the Western journalists repeatedly pushed him on the question of human rights in North Korea. He showered praise on Kim as a 'talented leader AMAN SHARMA

  6. Asian Geopolitics TOPIC IN NEWS Trump announced that he is suspending the routine US military exercises in South Korea that the North has always seen as provocative. The peace regime could also involve many measures to de-escalate the military tensions between North and South Korea Trump's musings on bringing home the 32,000 US troops in South Korea at some point in future has sent shock waves through the American establishment. During his campaign for Presidency in 2016-before that as well as since Trump has consistently raised questions about the costs and benefits of US military presence in Asia. He has insisted that America's allies must do more. In suggesting that the region must fend for itself, Trump has opened up space for rearranging the international relations of East Asia AMAN SHARMA

  7. ISAsian Geopolitics TOPIC IN NEWS Moon, without whom Trump and Kim could not have got to Singapore, has defied the conventional wisdom in betting that reconciliation with the North is possible. As the trio disrupts the regional order, two nations will put on their thinking hat. Both Tokyo and Beijing are deeply wary of Korean nationalism and the potential unity between North and South. Japan's premier Shinzo Abe will have no choice but to evaluate Japan's national security options if he sees that Trump is bent on scaling down American commitmentto Asian alliances. China, which should have been happy at American retrenchment, has reasons of its own to worry. For the strategic vacuum resulting from such retrenchment will create many new instabilities, encourage its Asian neighbours to strengthen their national military postures, including the consideration of nuclear weapons.
