* Former chief negotiator for Six-Party Talks advises Trump administration to get everything in writing and “don’t start talking about things that put a burden on the process”

* Hill hopes that withdrawal of U.S. troops from South Korea isn’t part of any bargain, calling the troops “an element of stability in the region”

(Beijing) — A meeting in Singapore between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un set for Tuesday morning local time will make history, potentially ending one of the last remaining chapters of the Cold War. Those talks could see an agreement to conclude the 68-year-old Korean War, but implementation of any such deal will be equally important, said Christopher Hill, former chief negotiator for the Six-Party Talks on denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
