Just last year, as Kim was launching long-range missiles at a record pace and trading vulgar insults with Trump, it would have seemed unthinkable for the topic of denuclearisation to be on the table.

But the North’s statement on Sunday seemed to be aimed at strengthening Kim’s position going into his meeting with Trump. Pyongyang claims Kim himself is the driver of the current situation.

“The US is deliberately provoking the DPRK at the time when the situation on the Korean Peninsula is moving toward peace and reconciliation,” the spokesman was quoted as saying.

North Korea also warned Washington that claiming Pyongyang was forced into talks by US pressure risked returning the peninsula “back to square one”.

DPRK is short for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the North’s formal name.

Kim and Trump are expected to meet later this month or in early June.

Trump has indicated the date and place have been chosen and said he believes the Demilitarized Zone that divides the Koreas might be a good venue. Singapore was also believed to be a potential site.

Believe it.  When it comes to causation, temporal sequence is strong evidence.  What came first, NK's nuclear and missile testing, or Trump's loud mouth?  

Trump's bluster is born of his fear, and Kim has realized that Trump can be manipulated into geopolitical positions, having no strategy himself...kinda like B'rer Bear.  All Kim has to do is set off a blast, or test a missile, and Trump will start bleating.  So...cause and effect.  You figure it out.

I hope the Nobel Peace Prize goes to Kim, if only for being in charge of a good thing.
