FILE - In this June 27, 2008 file photo released by China's Xinhua News Agency, the cooling tower of the Nyongbyon nuclear complex is demolished in Nyongbyon, also known as Yongbyon, North Korea.  Bill Clinton offered oil and reactors. George W. Bush mixed threats and aid. Barack Obama stopped trying after a rocket launch.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Friday, April 27, 2018,  to kick off a new round of high-stakes nuclear diplomacy with Pyongyang.
