Trump misrepresents North Korea nuclear agreement

Xi Jinping praises Kim for Trump summit

The Chinese President held discussions with Kim during the North Korean leader's third visit to China since March, as Beijing seeks to ensure it exerts influence over efforts to remove the nuclear threat in the Korean Peninsula and shape the future of north-east Asia.

The North Korean leader also visited a traffic control centre in Beijing before departing for Pyongyang on Wednesday afternoon, KCNA said. Though China surely wants a nuclear-free North Korea, one day, its immediate aim is getting Kim on side and North Korea stable. Gawking pedestrians watched the passing motorcade that included Kim's limousine - a black Mercedes-Benz Maybach with gold emblems on the rear doors - as well as several minibuses and 15 motorcycle police clad in white suits.

The motorcade travelled to Beijing's airport, where the limousine was spotted entering the charter flight terminal.

In Seoul, South Korean President Moon Jae-in urged North Korea to present actionable plans on how it will scrap its nuclear program, and for the United States to swiftly take unspecified corresponding measures. This would represent the bulk of the American remains North Korea has admitted to possessing.

During a rally on Wednesday night in Duluth, Minnesota, Trump described his meeting with Kim as "an incredible success".

This gave the impression that the United States was trying to win North Korea over to its side to reduce China's influence on the Korean peninsula.

The US President also agreed to stop "war games", joint military drills between the US and South Korea that the North has opposed to as "provocative".

South Korea and the Pentagon will halt the annual Freedom Guardian military drill scheduled for August

Trump has in the past expressed skeptical views of Kim's dealings with China.

President Donald Trump raised the likelihood of the repatriation of remains last week after his summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"No matter the changes in the worldwide and regional situation, China's party and government's resolute position on being dedicated to consolidating and developing Sino-North Korea relations will not change", the report cited Mr Xi as saying.

And when she saw President Trump meeting with Kim Jong Un in Singapore just last week, she immediately distrusted the North Korean dictator.

"South Korea and the U.S. have agreed to suspend all planning activities regarding the Freedom Guardian military drill scheduled for August", South Korea's Defence Ministry said in a statement.

Crucially, the longer the North Korea saga lingers and the more diplomatic attention is fixed on their nuclear weapons program, the more China avoids harsher scrutiny from the worldwide community.

The president last week said the USA would pause its joint exercises with South Korea while it partakes in the ongoing discussions over North Korea's nuclear program.

Cha Du-hyeogn, a visiting scholar at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies in Seoul, said the officials' presence signalled North Korea's attempts to synchronise its strategy with China before its next round of meetings with the United States on the denuclearisation issue.
