China wants UN Security Council to lift sanctions on North Korea

Trump is being hailed for his meeting with the North Korean leader.

It appears follow-up talks to the North Korea-US summit will be essential, as the agreement reached on Tuesday on North Korea's denuclearization was made at a broad level without details.

Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, said it was "troubling" that Trump had agreed to suspend joint drills without making any reference to North Korea dialing back its conventional military threat.

On June 6, South Korea's Memorial Day, Moon said the return of the remains of missing Americans and the estimated 120,000 South Koreans also missing from the 1950-53 war was a top priority for the Trump-Kim summit.

Despite Kim's pledges for denuclearization and the optimism for further talks, the easing of restrictive measures on Pyongyang will not be coming in the near future, according to Trump.

"My whole life has been deals".

As discussions follow after the summit, they could arrange meetings among the Koreas, the USA and possibly China to discuss the matter.

Panetta pointed to previous US administrations that tried to negotiate with Pyongyang, but failed to make the deals stick.

Trump said the negotiations he has initiated should help improve conditions in the isolated country, which successive USA administrations have targeted for gross human rights violations.

"China has consistently held that sanctions are not the goal in themselves", Geng said at a daily briefing. The talks ultimately imploded over differences on a verification regime, and North Korea formally withdrew from the negotiations after it launched a long-range rocket, prompting worldwide outrage.

"You know, countries like Iran and Cuba and other two-bit rogue regimes don't have nuclear weapons, yet".

"Without support from China, it's really hard for Washington and Pyongyang to press ahead on denuclearisation and the peace process", Cheng said.

Supporters of Tuesday's agreement say it serves as a starting point for more meaningful discussions.

It futher sees the United States and North Korea agree to "establish new relations", and 'join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula'.

Is it the first step towards the opening up of one of the world's most reclusive regimes?

Yesterday ahead of President Trump's meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, NBC News reported the issue of human rights would not be discussed at the summit as an issue.

He emphasized, however, that the Trump administration is still working toward a final deal.

"Sanctions are not an end", he said.

"To complete the process, the honest efforts of South Korea, North Korea and the U.S.as well as continuous cooperation by neighboring countries are necessary", Moon added.
