China suggests sanctions relief for N. Korea after U.S. summit

The comments come just hours after President Trump met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in Singapore.

"War games are very expensive", he said, raising the issue of their cost.

A presidential spokesman, in a cautious response, said Seoul needed to understand "the exact meaning and intention" of Mr Trump's remarks.

Mr Pompeo is expected to give a more detailed account of the first-ever US-North Korea summit to Mr Moon and his South Korean counterparts, the Cheong Wa Dae official noted.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe yesterday welcomed the document signed by both leaders as a "first step" towards denuclearisation.

"Kim Jong-un is desperate", said Hong. It can be seen as a concession in exchange for Kim halting nuclear and missile tests during 2018 - and an acknowledgement of China's "suspension-for-suspension" proposal. Before leaving himself, Trump tossed out pronouncements on United States alliances, human rights and the nature of the accord that he and Kim had signed.

The details of how and when the North would denuclearise appear yet to be determined, as are the nature of the unspecified "protections" Trump is pledging to Kim and his government.

Paralysis sets in slowly, starting in the legs and spreading into upper body, stopping your breathing if left unchecked. If nothing is done, the toxin ultimately makes it impossible for a person to breathe, resulting in respiratory failure.

University of Otago's Professor Robert Patman says North Korea's pledge to denuclearise is "open-ended" time wise. If U.S. troops in South Korea were to really halt military exercises, he says, it could cause allies to lose confidence in Washington and undermine the entire U.S. military presence in Asia.

The White House did not immediately respond to the North Korean characterisation of the deal.

Highlighting the continued differences in the two countries' views of the denuclearization process, the report also said that they had agreed on a "step-by-step" approach.

If confirmed, the reported deal could be seen as a concession by Trump since USA officials - and the president himself - had called for the North to take swift and clear disarmament measures before receiving any rewards.

USA military exercises with South Korea have been a key pillar of the defence relationship between the two countries that, despite a 1953 armistice, remain technically at war with North Korea. He says Trump "made very clear" that the condition for the freeze was that good-faith talks continue.

But Panetta, who previously worked for President Barack Obama, said there are a "huge number of issues" that will actually involve the denuclearization of North Korea, which owns an estimated 20 to 60 nuclear weapons with about 141 sites that can produce them. It is said that in accordance with the compliance of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (the official name of North Korea DPRK) and development of the situation the UNSC will consider relief or lift the sanctions on DPRK.

Trump and Kim reached a broad agreement that offered few specifics but included promises of US security guarantees and a reiteration from Kim of his country's commitment to "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".
