 Analysis of G20 Summit and regional affairs

G20 정상회의 관전 포인트는? The G20 Summit kicked off in Osaka, Japan today... bringing together world leaders in one place. President Moon Jae-in got things started with his summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping, and is set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in just a few hours. During the global gathering, President Moon is expected to promote his peace drive, taking the opportunity of multilateral diplomatic talks. Today we go in-depth on the G20 Summit and the prospects of peace on the Korean Peninsula,... with Dr. Kim Jae-chun, Professor at the Graduate School of International Studies, Sogang University . 1. Host nation Japan, has selected eight themes for this year's G20 summit which include the global economy, trade investment, innovation, environment and energy and women's empowerment. Could you first tell us the goal of this year's G20 meeting? 2. According to reports, Japan has left out the phrase "anti-trade protectionism" and instead included "promotion of free trade" in the draft of a joint declaration. How do you see this move? Expected backlash? 3. How did you see the South Korea-China summit last night? President Xi said North Korea's will to denuclearize remains unchanged, and that China will make contributions to peace on the Korean Peninsula. What is it that China wants? 4. The controversial issue of THAAD, or Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, was also brought up during the Moon-Xi summit. How do you forecast the future of this thorny issue between Seoul and Beijing? 5. Putin called on the need to resume multilateral talks to resolve North Korea's nuclear issue when he met with Kim Jong-un in April. What kind of outcome do you expect from Moon-Putin summit that will take place tonight? 6. Tomorrow, the world will zoom in on President Trump and Xi Jinping's trade war showdown. Many experts have downplayed the possibility of a breakthrough during the G20 summit. What kind of results do you expect from the high-stakes summit? 7. To what extent do you think North Korea's nuclear issue will be discussed between Trump and Xi Jinping? Would Trump welcome China's attempt to play a bigger role in denuclearization talks? 8. We still have to see whether President Moon and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will hold a summit, but it seems very unlikely at this point. Why? How do you analyze the future of Seoul-Tokyo relations? What would you say is a viable solution to the decades-old historical feud between South Korea and Japan? 9. Trump due in Seoul tomorrow, will hold summit with Moon on Sunday. What is your expectation of the summit outcome? Moon-Trump summit likely to help in resuming stalled talks between N. Korea and the U.S.?


Justin Trudeau Gets IGNORED By Trump at The G20 Summit 

The Charisma Matrix Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau had a hard time finding someone to talk to him when he walked into a meeting at the G20 Summit a few days ago. He was slightly ignored. In this video I'm going to point out what he did well and what he could have done better in this challenging situation. Have you had that experience where you enter a social situation in which a number of persons are already inside, paired up or in groups, conversing with one another? This could occur at a Happy Hour, a networking event, or even a formal business meeting. We clearly feel pressure in these circumstances to interject ourselves into the gathering by initiating a conversation with one or more people. But, this can be a challenging task when everybody seems to be locked in discussion with another by the time you arrive on the scene. In the attached video, Life Skill Coach Barron Cruz presents effective tools which can alleviate that "left out" perception we all face when entering an active social event which is "in progress," and comfortably move ourselves into the center of the discussion. He uses the recent meeting of the "G-20" World Leaders as a timely and relevant example of this concept at work: --First, avoid interrupting a pair or group of people who are visiting in close proximity to each other, squared up to each other with their shoulders, and in eye contact. Barging in to such a dialogue will be deemed as rude, and label you as an undesirable conversation partner. --Try to make eye contact with another, and then acknowledge them with a smile, nod of the head, slight wave, or even mouthing a "hello." You can then move to their immediate area to begin visiting. --As soon as possible, square up your shoulders to match the other person, and maintain eye contact as you start engaging in a chat. --You don't have to pick the most important person in the room to talk with. Just anyone who is not tightly engaged in a discussion with another, and appears open to your overture is fine. It clearly does not have to be someone you know, and the topic of conversation at this point is irrelevant. Many time it is really more relaxed and pleasant to make trivial small talk when starting up a dialogue. We always look and feel more confident, comfortable and "part of the action" when we are engaged with others, especially in situations specifically set up for us to be social and to interact.
