A Syracuse University international relations expert is calling the upcoming summit between the U.S. and North Korea extremely significant and could set the stage for more progress. 

Stuart Thorson is a professor emeritus from the Maxwell school, and has researched technology and governance North Korea.  He says we’ll have to see if the leaders agree to move in a direction that will perhaps formally end the Korean War, and establish diplomatic relations.
