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

Wang said in a statement earlier that China welcomed and supported the summit between the USA and North Korean leaders and hoped the two countries could reach a basic consensus on achieving denuclearisation.

Trump has credited his "maximum pressure" campaign of crippling trade and economic sanctions for bringing Kim to the negotiating table and vowed to keep them in place until North Korea complies with its promises.

President Trump said Tuesday there was a method to his "fire and fury" madness with North Korea.

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.

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


"Well, I think without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here", Trump said. "The U.S.is ready, willing, and able, but hopefully, this will not be necessary".

Speaking earlier in the day also in Beijing, the Chinese government's top diplomat, State Councillor Wang Yi, said China hoped the United States and North Korea can reach agreement on a peace deal.

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. The country announced in 2005 it had manufactured nuclear weapons. Trump attributed the move as a cost-saving measure.

"We've developed a very special bond", he added, referring to Kim. 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. Trump praised what had been achieved at the summit calling it a "new chapter" in relations with the North.

"Otto Warmbier is a very special person and he will be for a very long time in my life".
