Ignore the naysayers trying to disrupt US diplomacy with North Korea

Things aren't much better for many North Korean civilians. It has long proposed a "dual suspension", whereby North Korea stops weapons tests and the US and South Korea stop military drills, to encourage talks.

Pyongyang, which had pledged to return the remains of American soldiers unaccounted for since the end of the 1950-1953 Korean war, is expected to start transferring them in the coming days, Reuters reported, citing usa officials.

In 2012, the U.S. military announced that it was planning to launch another recovery mission with North Korean approval after three days of talks in Bangkok, but that effort was also eventually scuttled.

Xi said China hoped North Korea and the USA could "implement well the outcomes achieved at the summit", China's state broadcaster CCTV reported.

Even if the USA is able to begin recovering more remains from North Korea, many more years of work will be needed to identify numerous United States troops who died there, said Sarah Wagner, an anthropologist with George Washington University, who has worked on military repatriation issues.

He added: "The detailed negotiations have not begun".

It does not detail how North Korea will "work toward complete denuclearization" or any sort of inspection process other countries can rely on to verify it is actually doing so, nor does it require Kim to give up any of his nuclear weapons at any particular time.

Not only did the North Korean leader met with President Xi Jinping, . he spent a fair amount of time touring Beijing's major city management and research centers.

But he said the most important development is the improved relationship between the USA and North Korea, which he forged in the historic summit with dictator Kim Jong-un.

But despite the initial steps, Mattis said Wednesday he was "not aware" of any steps taken by Kim to denuclearize.

Japan plans to suspend the civilian evacuation drills it started past year while North Korea was repeatedly test-firing missiles near and over Japanese islands, officials said Thursday, citing diplomatic overtures from Pyongyang.

At a Wednesday meeting over tea at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse, Xi said that "the two sides have jointly created a new history of China-DPRK high-level exchanges", according to the Xinhua state news agency. I wouldn't expect that at this point.' he told reporters. After departing that gathering in Quebec, Trump attacked Justin Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak" after the Canadian prime minister told reporters his government would retaliate against new USA tariffs it viewed as unfair. "North Korea has already finished developing (the) Baekdu Engine, so there would be no problem running ICBM missile programs even if they close down the Sohae site".

The United States and South Korea said on Tuesday they had agreed to suspend a joint military exercise scheduled for August, although decisions regarding subsequent drills have not yet been made. United States officials, however, have cautioned that such actions are reversible.

Just 23 percent of Americans say they're very or extremely confident in his ability to handle complex foreign policy situations, while 53 percent are not very or not at all confident.
