Hours after talks between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump in Singapore, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said the Security Council's sanctions against North Korea were created to be adjusted and could be suspended or lifted in accordance with the North's actions.
Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un concluded their extraordinary meeting by signing a document in which Trump pledged "security guarantees" to the North and Kim recommitted to the "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".
However, it was only in 1992 that the United States and North Korea rekindled diplomatic. "The world will see a major change".
It may have also opened the door to Trump Towers Pyongyang.
"But a lot of people started to focus in what was going on, including North Korea".
Mr Kim, whose country is subject to a broad range of global sanctions over its illegal weapons program, said he and Mr Trump had "decided to leave the past behind". "I will call him shortly - maybe before I land", Trump said.
Joseph Yun, the State Department's former North Korea negotiator who resigned earlier this year, expressed concern about a "slippery slope" where Pyongyang would soon say "you're my friend ..." How bad is that, right?
Yesterday's summit was the first time a sitting USA president had met face-to-face with a North Korean leader. He said they will "probably need another meeting". "So I think the rhetoric, I hated to do it, sometimes I felt foolish doing it, but we had no choice". Bilateral trade has plunged in recent months as China ratcheted up enforcement of the increasingly tough restrictions ordered over the North's missile and nuclear weapons tests. He quickly cautioned, however, that "we will all know soon whether or not a real deal. can happen". But Trump's joint statement falls short even when compared with smaller, piecemeal agreements made before the 1994 accord.
Well it's in many ways a great victory for Kim Jong-un. He had a lot to do with us being here today, ' Trump added.
Trump and Kim met privately from 9:05am local time for 48 minutes flanked only by their translators, then broke for a wider bilateral meeting with aides, a meeting expected to last 90 minutes, leading into lunch at 11:30am (3:30 GMT).
The remarks were made by foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang at a briefing in Beijing after Foreign Minister Wang Yi praised the summit - the first between a North Korean leader and a sitting U.S. president - as "creating a new history".
"Now we can have hope it will soon end", Trump said. Specific to laws about speech, vagueness "inevitably deters people from engaging in constitutionally protected speech".
Oh, and Dennis Rodman was there. "Hate speech" laws are inherently subjective and ambiguous in their language, with the use of words like "insulting", "abusive", and "outrageous".
