Friend or foe: Kim Jong-un signals that North Korea may enter a new era of foreign relations

North Korea’s Kim Jong-un appears to be reversing his hardline policy for now and holding out a tentative hand to his neighbour to the south – and maybe his arch-enemy the US as well.

That calculated verbiage highlighted a report covering “affairs with south [sic] Korea as required by the prevailing situation”.
