China wants UN Security Council to lift sanctions on North Korea

China wants UN Security Council to lift sanctions on North Korea

North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un should know that the U.S. has a history of "quitting treaties and violating their commitments" before trusting Washington, Iran's Foreign Ministry said Monday.

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.

Kim Jong un has agreed to work towards dumping his country's nuclear weapons in a document joint-signed with Donald Trump.

Beijing has key strategic interests when it comes to North Korea, and has long feared that a collapse of its isolated neighbor could push waves of refugees into northeastern China, or that nuclear war on the Korean peninsula could contaminate swathes of the country.

"The U.S. has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea", the President warned.




As North Korea was conducting multiple missile tests a year ago and threatening to attack the U.S., Mr. Trump responded with rhetoric that was unusually aggressive for a U.S. leader.

"The crux of the peninsula nuclear issue is a security issue".

Did Trump end military exercises with South Korea?

Trump attributed the move as a cost-saving measure.

During the news conference, Trump said the summit would not have happened were it not for Otto Warmbier, the college student who was arrested in North Korea and practically murdered by the regime. "I think without Otto, this would not have happened", Trump said.

However, no peace treaty was signed and the two nations are technically still enemy combatants.
