Prof. Julian Ku Explains Why the North Korea Summit Matters for Business Insider

Julian Ku, the Maurice A. Deane Distinguished Professor of Constitutional Law, was featured on Business Insider’s YouTube channel to explain why even if the meeting between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un was primarily a photo opportunity, it still matters.

Professor Ku also discusses what to expect from North Korea and the U.S. in the future and how their agreement may look similar to the Iran deal that was recently ditched by Trump.

In his interview, Professor Ku said, “If both sides want to continue, and they feel like there’s enough good faith built up in that first meeting, then maybe something will be achieved. So that’s what we can expect in the future, that this original meeting provides enough political support on both sides to then move forward where both sides start making more substantive commitments or specific commitments, and really the commitments are mostly at this point for North Korea. There’s not much more the U.S. can reasonably give.”
