Leaders meet in the DMZ

From The Panel, 4:24 pm on 1 July 2019

Donald Trump has become the first sitting US President to set foot in North Korea, meeting Kim Jong Un in the demilitarized zone.

The two leaders talked for nearly an hour and agreed to set up teams to restore nuclear talks, after their last summit broke down in February with little progress.

We ask Dr Tim Beal whether this was political theatre or real movement.
