Kim Jong Un commits to ‘complete denuclearization’ after meeting with Trump

China suggested the United Nations Security Council suspend or lift sanctions against North Korea on Tuesday just hours after President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un agreed to work to denuclearize the peninsula, according to a report.

Still, after the summit, Trump applauded the North Korean leader and said the people "love" Kim, regardless of Trump's previous remarks denouncing the regime's purported human rights abuses. He said: "We believe the Security Council should make efforts to support the diplomatic efforts at the present time".

The summit in Singapore between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un appears to be going smoothly, but Fox News host Chris Wallace says that "optimism and caution are both warranted in this case".

"I think without the rhetoric, we wouldn't have been here", Mr. Trump said.

"As an important party involved in the matters of the Korean Peninsula, and as a signatory of the ceasefire, China has a responsibility and obligation to play its deserved role in the progress of shifting to a non-nuclear peninsula".

Trump explained during a post-summit news conference that inspectors will be sent into North Korea to verify the country is moving forward with denuclearization.

However, relations with North Korea, which had seemed to go well, broke down under former President George W. Bush after the USA accused North Korea of having an enriched uranium program, a major step in the nuclear weapon building process.

The US side seeks denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula under terms that give US and worldwide authorities broad power to inspect nuclear reactors in North Korea at any time they choose to verify parts of a potential denuclearization agreement.

"We hope that the two countries' highest leaders can dispel interference, establish mutual trust, overcome difficulties and can reach a basic consensus on promoting and achieving the denuclearization of the peninsula and promoting and establishing a peace mechanism for the peninsula", Wang told reporters.

It futher sees the USA and North Korea agree to "establish new relations", and 'join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula'. "And this role will continue".
