'Disappointing': Experts React To The United States-North Korea Summit

Kim Jong un has agreed to work towards dumping his country's nuclear weapons in a document joint-signed with Donald Trump.

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. "Previous agreements have committed North Korea to allowing [International Atomic Energy Agency] inspectors back into the country, to adhering to global arms control treaties, and so forth".

Beijing's participation in the penalties is a key to keeping them in play against Kim's regime.

On Monday night's The Ingraham Angle, Wallace said that it's "almost surreal" to see Trump and Kim, "who just months ago were launching verbal ICBMs at each other", standing together and shaking hands.

Just hours before US President Donald Trump is to meet North Korea's supreme leader, the Iranian Foreign Ministry warned that before any deals are made, Kim should be aware that Washington is known for breaking agreements.

Geng dismissed accusations from Trump that Beijing has been easing up on the sanctions, saying it is following United Nations sanctions "comprehensively, accurately and strictly".

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.

China views the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue as a security issue, and what is most important is for the United States and North Korea to sit down to find a way to resolve their problems, Wang said. One of North Korea's stated goals is to establish peace with the US and ultimately see the removal of more than 30,000 USA troops from the Korean Peninsula.
