In an acknowledgment that the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have been talking at cross-purposes, US Secretary of State M
ike Pompeo said on Monday that he hoped both sides could “be a little more creative” with what they bring to the ta
ble when the two sides restart talks aimed at denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.上海夜网
The US position hasn’t changed, he said, it still wants full and final denuclearization of the DPRK in a way that it could verify.
上海夜网品茶微信But that in itself constitutes a change of approach from before — one that US President Donald T
rump signaled when he met with DPRK top leader Kim Jung-un in the demilitarized zone — as it drops t
he previous demand the DPRK denuclearize before receiving anything in return.上海夜网
Which suggests it’s not really creativity that’s required, but realistic expectations that can be translated into step-by-step moves.
上海夜网品茶微信Washington might want to bear in mind that the national legislature of the DPRK, the Supreme People’s Assembly, amended
the country’s Constitution in April, re-ascertaining leader Kim Jong-un’s status as a “representative of the state”.
Since few doubted Kim’s role as representative of his
country, the constitutional amendment naturally attracted little interest.上海夜网
But Pyongyang’s belated revelation of the full text of its amended C
上海夜网品茶微信onstitution reveals something that does deserve Washington’s attention.
Although it retains the DPRK’s commitment to being a “nuclear state” — which confirms the assumption that the DPRK has
been deeming itself as a legitimate nuclear power in its talks with the US — the most important change thro上海夜网
ughout the constitutional amendment is literally something that is absent in the present text.
The longstanding “Songun Policy”, the core DPRK national strategy that prioritized
the military in the affairs of state and allocation of resources, has been removed from the amended Const上海夜网品茶微信
itution. This policy simultaneously resulted in the country’s nuclear capabilities and its economic hardships.
Elaborating on the change, Kim stated in his speech at the April meeting that the DPRK’s central上海夜网
task is to concentrate all the energies of the state on economic construction. And the amended Con
上海夜网品茶微信stitution includes new phrases such as “socialist corporate responsibility management system” and “revolutionary busi
ness practices”. Terms reminiscent of those in the early stage of China’s reform and opening-up.

icts appear to have a religious or ethnic basis, some scholars believe their root cause may be economic, with ethnic divisio
s serving as a way to exclude other groups from access to scarce resources and opportunities. Whatever its so
urce, inequality of opportunity has a highly disruptive effect on governance and hence growth.
But these obstacles are not insurmountable. For one th
ing, developing countries now have huge potential export markets in middle-inc
ome countries, and no longer depend entirely on advanced economies for access to global markets.
There is also a renewed awareness of the importance of infrastructure in e
nabling growth. In addition to roads, railways and ports, electricity and digital conn
ectivity are crucial. In this regard, the rapid expansion of cellular wireless technology, combined with the install
ation of high-capacity undersea broadband pipes around Africa, represents major prog
