As a result, the U.S. secretary of state has been reduced to little more than a sherpa for his boss' summits with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.Of course, all the U.S. really got from the summit was a vaguely worded joint statement.Most notably, Trump suddenly seemed to endorse the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the Korean Peninsula, and he has since canceled U.S. military exercises with South Korea.Thus, in its ongoing parallel talks with the North, it has essentially decoupled inter-Korean diplomacy from the nuclear issue.Still, South Korea has also continued to act as a broker between the U.S. and the Kim regime. Whenever the U.S.-North Korean talks have hit a snag, Moon has stepped in to revive them, often by throwing bouquets to both Kim and Trump as encouragement to continue. But while the U.S. and South Korea have remained in close contact, North Korea has most likely been trying to create tensions between the two allies by telling them each slightly different things.For its part, the Trump administration has done a good job of maintaining the U.S. alliance with South Korea.
