China 'Offers Aid to N.Korea'

And Wang said the ruling Chinese Communist Party is likely to continue imposing United Nations sanctions imposed last December, despite a recent rapprochement between President Xi Jinping and Kim Jong Un.

With North Korea, however, there can be no trust. But the ideal situation of North Korea giving up their nuclear program totally may be unrealistic, but there is some room to negotiate to have a positive result.

The report comes a week after Kim made his second trip to China in less than two months to again meet with President Xi Jinping.

"If the North Koreans are genuine and allow these intrusive inspections, then it works", said Malcolm Davis, a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute in Canberra. According to Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun, the North has resisted a request by the United States to relocate thousands of North Korean nuclear engineers-a move to assure the North can not restart nuclear development in the future. The site lies just across the border in North Korea but was closed in 2016 after a nuclear test and rocket launch.

Both subsequent regimes believed they would eventually take over all of Korea, and border skirmishes were common in the ensuing years until June 25, 1950, when North Korean forces poured over the parallel and almost toppled the South Korean government.

Scottish Parliament REFUSES to give consent for Westminster Brexit bill — BREXIT BETRAYAL
He said the government would press ahead with the Bill but suggested it would be open to amending it to reflect Scottish concerns. Scotland's parliament is expected to formally reject legislation for taking Britain out of the European Union today.

"The choice of Singapore for the North Korea-US summit on the one hand is unexpected, on the other hand, there is nothing surprising about it. Singapore was among one of the possible places for negotiations, although many previously assumed that the probability of holding them in the demilitarized zone is higher". If a war had broken out between North Korea and the U.S., China would have been drawn into it as they were in the 1950s.

The demand for complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization is "wildly different" from getting rid of North Korea's intercontinental ballistic missiles, according to Van Jackson, a senior lecturer at Victoria University of Wellington who is writing a book on North Korea. Trump hailed the gesture as "very smart and gracious", and Pompeo said it is "good news" and "one step along the way".

John Bolton, Trump's national security advisor, also said in an interview with CNN's "State of the Union" that the DPRK should not "look for economic aid from us".

Whether Mr. Kim will agree to a freeze on the North's nuclear programme is, however, still in the realm of speculation. The Treasury Department has been behind Washington's stringent economic sanctions on the North, and the Trump administration has credited its maximum pressure campaign as having brought Pyongyang to the negotiating table.

"If we get denuclearization, of course, there will be sanctions relief, certainly". The airport was said to have been blocked when they arrived.
