South Korea's president wants to see 'concrete' plan on North's denuclearization soon

Xi Jinping praises Kim for Trump summit

At the summit with Trump in Singapore, Kim pledged to work toward denuclearization in exchange for US security guarantees. Kim also agreed to allow American authorities to retrieve the remains of American soldiers killed in the Korean War.

Following the June 12 summit in Singapore, Trump stunned US lawmakers, allies and Pentagon officials with plans to halt military exercises with USA ally South Korea and by Tuesday officially announced the cancellation of the exercises slated for August.

President Donald Trump told reporters after their June 12 summit that Kim had pledged to dismantle one of his missile installations-North Korea's most concrete concession at the landmark meeting in Singapore.

North Korea's Kim Jong-un said he will work with China to secure "true peace" on Wednesday, as Beijing seeks to take the driving seat in fast-paced diplomacy over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons.

It's been more than a decade since North Korea turned over the remains of American troops missing from the Korean War. It has long proposed a "dual suspension", whereby North Korea stops weapons tests and the USA and South Korea stop military drills, to encourage talks. More than 36,500 USA troops died in the conflict.

Kim chose Beijing for his first official foreign trip in March and met Xi again in May in the northeastern port city of Dalian.

Kim's visit to China this week will renew questions about what happens post-Singapore.

Perhaps thinking about implementing the findings in North Korea, Kim noted how the academy's science and technology has greatly contributed to China's agricultural development. Trump's critics have responded to his confidence in the agreement struck with Kim at the summit with reminders that North Korea has never signed such a deal that it didn't later break.

The United States can not stand idly by as China establishes normal relations with North Korea or modernizes its economy before actual, concrete steps are taken toward denuclearization and peace on the peninsula.

A North Korean shop, on the border between the two Koreas, usually sold souvenirs like postcards and stamps attacking the United States.

Ahead of the Singapore meeting, North Korea announced the suspension of its intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) testing.

Town said, "If North Korea does destroy the Sohae facility, they are also signaling that they are willing to stop satellite/rocket launches this time around as well".

Koryo Tours' Simon Cockerell said that given how institutionally anti-American the DPRK is, the removal of anti-U.S. propaganda "may be the start of a real softening of rhetoric".

But "China will continue to play a constructive role to this end", Xi said.
