He’s introduced bands onstage at gritty downtown venues, extolled the music of Sepultura of Brazil, and even fondly reminisced about how he once got booted from an Ozzy Osbourne concert after jumping off a wall — and into the audience. ____ Photo Credit Charlie Gates for The New York Times 8.

Japan Fears Being Sidelined by Trump on Trade and North Korea

NYT

Mr. Abe hoped to secure Mr. Trump’s commitment on two issues: curtailing the North’s nuclear and ballistic weapons programs, and facilitating the return of Japanese citizens abducted by North Korea in the 1970s and ’80s.On Wednesday in Tokyo, critics were skeptical that Mr. Trump would give Japan much consideration once he got into a room with Mr. Kim.“The possibility of the U.S

Treaty to Formally End Korean War Is Being Discussed, South Confirms

NYT

China said on Wednesday that it wanted to play a positive role in formally ending the war, in which an estimated three million Chinese soldiers fought. But it stopped short of endorsing the idea of a treaty, which is likely to involve extensive negotiations and would require the recognition of North Korea by the United States.“China’s attitude is open and supportive to any peaceful means to resolve the Korean Peninsula issue through consultations,” Hua Chunying, spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said when asked at a news briefing in Beijing about supporting a possible treaty.China has promoted the idea of a peace treaty from time to time over the past two decades, to little avail. This time, analysts said on Wednesday, Beijing’s enthusiasm for the idea is likely to be tempered by rising tensions with the Trump administration over trade and Taiwan. Chinese officials are livid over Washington’s move this week to prevent American suppliers from selling parts to the Chinese tech giant ZTE, they said.“If the two countries cannot settle the trade issues, that will have a significant impact on China’s attitude toward helping the United States on North Korea,” said Cheng Xiaohe, a North Korea expert at the Beijing-based Renmin University. “The ongoing situation with trade is complicating and undermining cooperation.”PhotoPresident Xi Jinping of China, left, and the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, in Beijing last month.Credit Korean Central News Agency, via Agence France-Presse — Getty ImagesAt the same time, Mr. Cheng said, China’s relations with North Korea have rapidly warmed in the wake of Kim Jong-un’s surprise visit to Beijing last month. That could give China leverage with North Korea against the United States as Washington works out the terms of the meeting between Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim.Continue reading the main storySouth Korean officials said on Wednesday that they hoped Mr. Kim and Mr.

Secret Pompeo Mission to North Korea Shows Trump’s Trust in Spies Over Diplomats

NYT

It also underscores Mr. Trump’s unorthodox approach to one of the riskiest diplomatic gambits of his presidency. However trusted by the president, Mr. Pompeo is hardly a traditional emissary. He is not yet the nation’s chief diplomat but a lame duck as the nation’s spymaster.Few details about Mr. Pompeo’s trip, which officials said happened over Easter weekend, had emerged on Wednesday morning. But some former administration officials expressed surprise that he returned from Pyongyang without any visible concessions, like the release of three Americans detained in North Korea.In 2014, the then-director of national intelligence, James R. Clapper, traveled secretly to North Korea to negotiate the release of two Americans, Kenneth Bae and Matthew Todd Miller.
