Trump's summit with North Korea deemed a photo opp by skeptics

Speaking in Beijing following Trump and Kim's signing of a joint statement at the end of their historic summit in Singapore, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang reiterated that China has always strictly abided by all United Nations resolutions on North Korea.

A spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry said during a weekly briefing with reporters Monday that Iran views the Trump-Kim summit with "great pessimism", the Times of Israel reports.

"I think our whole relationship with North Korea and the Korean peninsula is going to be a very different situation than it has in the past", Trump said during Tuesday's signing ceremony.

China has suggested that the UN Security Council consider suspending or lifting sanctions against North Korea if the country is in compliance with UN resolutions and making progress in diplomatic negotiations. "Previous agreements have committed North Korea to allowing [International Atomic Energy Agency] inspectors back into the country, to adhering to worldwide arms control treaties, and so forth".

North Korea also serves as a valuable buffer state between China and US forces in South Korea.

Tehran, which has its own sad experience in dealing with the USA, has warned Pyongyang that President Donald Trump may cancel the recent Singapore agreement, hours after the meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jing-un.

As North Korea was conducting multiple missile tests past year and threatening to attack the U.S., Mr. Trump responded with rhetoric that was unusually aggressive for a U.S. leader.

"We've developed a very special bond", he added, referring to Kim. "I think nobody can doubt the extremely unique and important role China has played".

According to the joint statement, both sides also agreed to recover and return remains of soldiers who were killed or missing in action during the Korean War so they can be repatriated.
