"U.S. Warns Of 'Terrorism' Risk During World Cup In Russia"

Dem US-Außenministerium zufolge muss die am Freitag eröffnete Fußball-WM in Russland wie andere Großveranstaltungen zuvor als potentielles Ziel von Terroranschlägen betrachtet werden. "The U.S. State Department is warning that 'terrorists' may target World Cup venues in Russia, which is hosting the monthlong soccer tournament, but it did not point to any specific threat. In a travel advisory issued late on June 15, the department urged U.S. citizens to reconsider traveling to Russia due to the threat of 'terrorism' as well as 'harassment and extortion' from law enforcement and other Russian officials. 'Large-scale international events such as the World Cup present an attractive target for terrorists,' the department said. (...) The Islamic State extremist group has threatened to disrupt the games in social-media postings since late last year. Russian officials say they are prepared, and have stationed tens of thousands of security personnel in Moscow and the other 10 Russian cities that are hosting games."

"Amid Concerns of Terrorism and Hooligans, Russia Puts In Place 'Ring of Steel'"

Die russischen Sicherheitsbehörden hätten einen "Ring aus Stahl" um das WM-Turnier gezogen, um Terroranschläge und Übergriffe von Hooligans zu verhindern, schreibt die Moscow Times. "With Russia hosting a massive influx of tourists in 11 cities across the country, the question on many people’s minds is: Is it safe? Russia is well aware that the world’s attention is fixed on the country this summer and it is eager to show that it can easily accommodate the more than one million foreign fans expected to descend on the country during the World Cup. Ensuring that the tournament’s matches go ahead without a hitch is a matter of supreme importance to the Kremlin, and the government has spared no expense: Official estimates claim that more than 30 billion rubles ($479 million) have been spent solely on security."

"South Koreans pause for glimpse of U.S.-North Korea summit"

Reuters berichtet aus Seoul, wie das Gipfeltreffen Donald Trumps mit Kim Jong-un in Singapur von der Bevölkerung in Südkorea verfolgt wurde. "As North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump shook hands at a historic summit in Singapore on Tuesday, South Koreans stopped in their tracks to watch the event unfurl on live television. (...) South Koreans have been largely supportive of the summit since it was announced, with a poll in April showing the border village of Panmunjom as their top preference for the venue. (...) Despite the excitement many expressed about watching Trump and Kim on television, some South Koreans voiced doubts and indifference regarding Tuesday’s summit. 'Peace isn’t bad but I didn’t have that much of an interest because I was busy working,' said Maeng Yeong-hwan, a 32-year-old office worker in Seoul, noting he had more of an interest in the soccer World Cup."

"New start for peace"

Die Korea Times hofft in ihrem Leitartikel, dass das Gipfeltreffen in Singapur eine neue Ära der Beziehungen zwischen den USA und Nordkorea eingeläutet habe. "The two leaders deserve equal credit for realizing the historic U.S.-North Korea summit, which is something their predecessors failed to do. With their first meeting, the two leaders have laid the foundation for a new era of bilateral relations. (...) It remains to be seen how much impact their agreement will have on actually bringing results on North Korea's denuclearization. It will require commitment and sacrifice from both parties to realize permanent peace on peninsula, which is the shared goal of both countries as well as South Korea. But regardless of the implementation of the agreement, the meeting has left an extremely important legacy in that it marked the start of direct communication between the leaders of the Cold War foes."

"Kim Jong-un is winning the Singapore summit"

Auch Tim Stanley sieht Kim Jong-un als klaren Gewinner von Singapur, da Donald Trump das nordkoreanische Regime mit dem symbolischen Treffen praktisch legitimiert habe. "They shook hands standing in front of a row of flags, alternately American and North Korean. No image has done more to validate this dictatorship. It implies an equality between the two countries, and that Kim is the leader of the kind of regime that the world’s greatest super power wants to talk to. That is exactly what North Korea wants. (...) you have to understand that Kim’s sudden outreach to the United States is not a sign of weakness – it’s only happened because Kim judges that the nuclear programme has reached such a degree of strength that it can now be played as a bargaining chip."

"Trump-Kim summit: president says US 'will be stopping the war games' – live"

Der Guardian hat das historische Gipfeltreffen zwischen US-Präsident Trump und Nordkoreas Staatschef Kim Jong-un in diesem Live-Blog verfolgt. Dazu gehört auch eine Zusammenstellung der ersten Reaktionen von Politikern, Experten und Journalisten auf die Ergebnisse des Treffens. So meint z.B. Nicholas Kristoff in der New York Times, dass Trump von Kim ausmanövriert worden sei: "Kim seems to have completely out-negotiated Trump, and it’s scary that Trump doesn’t seem to realize this. For now Trump has much less to show than past negotiators who hammered out deals with North Korea like the 1994 Agreed Framework, which completely froze the country’s plutonium program with a rigorous monitoring system ... For now at least, Trump seems to have been snookered into the same kind of deeply frustrating diplomatic process with North Korea that he has complained about, but that is far better than war."

"The Nine Steps Required to Really Disarm North Korea"

Die New York Times erklärt in diesem interaktiven Übersichtsartikel, warum ein international kontrollierter Abbau des nordkoreanischen Atomwaffenprogramms die bisher schwierigste Herausforderung dieser Art wäre. "The vast scope of North Korea’s atomic program means ending it would be the most challenging case of nuclear disarmament in history. Here’s what has to be done to achieve — and verify — the removal of the nuclear arms, the dismantlement of the atomic complex and the elimination of the North’s other weapons of mass destruction."

"Yes, North Korea Will Give up Its Nukes and Kim Jong Un Is Crying to Prove It"

Larry Ong schreibt, dass Kim Jong-un zur Aufgabe der eigenen Atomwaffen bereit sei, da diese sich als ernste Bedrohung des nordkoreanischen Regimes herausgestellt hätten. "Kim will likely agree to abandon his nuclear weapons because they are currently threatening, and not ensuring, the survival of his regime. Regime survivability comes first and foremost for the authoritarian communist regimes of North Korea and China. (...) Faced with an unwilling China and an uncompromising America, Kim may find that he has no choice but to agree to Trump’s demand for complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization to preserve his rule. After all, Trump has promised to help North Korea achieve economic prosperity on par with South Korea and give security guarantees if Kim abandons his nukes. The catch is that for Kim, the biggest headache would come from selling the deal to North Koreans without losing prestige. Already, the propaganda gears are whirling."

"This Is Bigger Than a Meeting With Kim Jong Un"

Uri Friedman hat sich in Seoul mit dem Korea-Experten John Delury unterhalten, der Donald Trumps Nordkorea-Strategie im neuen internationalen Kontext als angemessen und "mutig" einschätzt. "Delury disagreed with Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the nuclear agreement with Iran, and acknowledged that America’s relations with Iran are even more toxic than its relations with North Korea because Washington and Tehran are on opposing sides of conflicts across the Middle East. Still, he maintained that Obama’s 'complicated, technical' deal may have been 'too focused' on constraining Iran’s nuclear capabilities. 'It wasn’t a deep political settlement,' he explained, whereas 'what I see Trump working on with Kim Jong Un is … a fundamental transformation of the relationship.' And what Trump is facing is nothing less than a new nuclear age, when the strategies that kept the world safe during the Cold War may no longer apply. (...) 'I think Trump gets it,' Delury told me. Fundamental transformation is 'the way to get progress with North Korea.'"

"North Korean leader anxious about military coup"

Nordkoreas Staatschef Kim Jong-un habe offenbar seinen wichtigsten Berater in Pjöngjang zurückgelassen, um die Möglichkeit eines Militärputsches während des Gipfeltreffens in Singapur auszuschließen, schreibt Yi Whan-woo. "Kim Jong-un is expected to stay in Singapore for at least a couple of days until the summit. And he worries that his trip could expose him to a military coup or other attempts to unseat him back home, according to the Washington Post. Despite his reign of terror, Kim is believed to fear losing power after killing numerous figures since taking power in 2011, including his older half-brother Kim Jong-nam and his uncle Jang Song-thaek."

"China may take bigger role as 'guarantor and mediator' after Trump-Kim nuclear talks"

Laura Zhou berichtet dagegen, dass Peking von einem zunächst symbolischen Erfolg des Gipfeltreffens zwischen Donald Trump mit Kim Jong-un ausgehe und bereit sei, beide Seien bei einer Einigung zu unterstützen. "Beijing is expected to take a bigger role in Korean peninsula negotiations after US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un meet on Tuesday – helping the two sides to push forward any deals they make. The role would be as a 'guarantor', Chinese analysts say, not just of progress on the denuclearisation Washington is seeking, but also to ensure what Kim wants most: the safety of his regime."

"Can Trump persuade Kim Jong-un to give up nuclear weapons?"

US-Präsident Trump sei offenbar bereit, Nordkorea beim Gipfeltreffen mit Kim Jong-un in Singapur das Angebot einer vollständigen Normalisierung der diplomatischen Beziehungen zu unterbreiten, schreibt Uwe Parpart. Dies gehe über frühere Angebote der USA hinaus und sei genau, was Nordkorea schon immer gewollt habe. "Kim Jong-un can’t be bullied by threats of military attacks, and he can’t be bought by the offer to lift sanctions. He wants to be treated as an equal. Kim wants what he and his predecessors have always wanted and will always want. That is full, internationally recognized sovereignty and security within its borders, certified by a peace treaty with the powers involved in the Korean War. (...) If Trump comes to Singapore to bully and bribe Kim Jong-un, the summit will fail. If the US President instead is willing to trade legitimacy for a regime that has been a thorn in America’s side for the elimination of the nuclear threat, it has a chance to succeed."

"Trump's history of dealmaking guides his quest for the biggest deal of his life"

Jeremy Diamond analysiert das Gipfeltreffen Donald Trumps mit Kim Jong-un in Singapur im Kontext früherer geschäftlicher Praktiken des US-Präsidenten. Trump wolle unbedingt einen Erfolg präsentieren und könne dabei möglicherweise vom politischen Skript abweichen. "When Trump is eager to make a deal, everything else fades from view, explained Jack O'Donnell, a former Trump Organization executive. 'Sometimes he would say, 'Get it at any price.' When he makes his mind up that he wants something, it really doesn't matter. The economics begin to disappear for him,' O'Donnell said, adding Trump would only get upset about deals made to satisfy those desires once the bill arrived. Experts Trump hired to run his various enterprises repeatedly hit walls when their advice ran counter to Trump's gut instincts or his vision of success".
