Sen. Shaheen: ‘No Doubt’ Kim Jong-Un Is the One ‘Driving This Diplomatic Initiative’
SHAHEEN: "Well, I think the international sanctions and the pressure has been important. But there is no doubt that Kim jung-un is the person who is driving this diplomatic initiative. And I’ve had a chance to meet with a number of former secretaries of state and defense who have negotiated with the North Koreans in the past. And one of the things they said was very important to those negotiations was the preparation that was done beforehand. And we’re missing a secretary of state and a head of the CIA. So we need to think about those preparations so that when President Trump goes into negotiations, he has somebody there to support him."
