Deeds, not words

The ‘historic’ meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong-un has made headlines around the world, but there are no cast-iron guarantees, and not even moderate ones, that something concrete  will emerge as a result.

There is a lot of scepticism among intelligent observers; in fact some commentators believe that “The most substantial thing to come out of the summit may well have been the dark chocolate tart served at the “working lunch” which Mr Trump and Mr Kim held with their delegations after meeting face to face”. Another opinion is that “This feels more like the triumph of faith over reality with a heavy dose of spin and salesmanship thrown in to bolster Donald Trump’s standing with his base at home”. They ring true.

As always, what matters is deeds, not words. Time will tell how important or effective this meeting has been.

In the meantime, it is only logical to feel a great deal of scepticism, at the same time  wishing to be proven wrong.
