China suggests sanctions relief for N. Korea after U.S. summit

He called Warmbier's death "brutal", but noted that "a lot of people started to focus on what was going on including North Korea". That deal reportedly includes a commitment to a "complete denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula aimed at establishing a "peace regime".

China suggested Tuesday that the U.N. Security Council consider suspending or lifting sanctions against North Korea if the country is in compliance with U.N. resolutions and making progress in diplomatic negotiations.

The Trump-Kim summit, unthinkable just a few months ago, is yet more vindication of the Cold War doctrine of deterrence where the capacity and threat to inflict pain augments the force of diplomacy, and can prompt "rogue" regimes to display a strong survival instinct.

I think, suspending military exercises is the one thing the U.S. can rather un-problematically do in order to get concessions from North Korea, because lifting sanctions, at this point, before North Korea moves forward toward denuclearization, will encounter a lot of resistance from other people in the American political system.

During the State of the Union, President Trump highlighted the story of Ji Seong-ho, who escaped from a North Korean labor camp. Now the North is to destroy a massive missile engines testing site, according to Trump.

Trump said he is open to visiting Kim some day in Pyongyang.

'He wants to do the right thing, ' he said of Kim. And so we're putting him on the same stage as the American president.

"I think the rhetoric, I hated to do it, sometimes I felt foolish doing it, but we had no choice", Trump said to Fox News host Sean Hannity per clips of an interview to air Tuesday night, The Hill reported.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted that the U.S. negotiating team "delivers for America's swagger".

But instead, she said, the North Koreans left him in a awful place with no care to vegetate, and then acted "like we're doing the world a favor" and released him saying he had botulism - which USA doctors never confirmed.

Trump told ABC's George Stephanopoulous that he can only assess Kim based on their meeting.

Trump directed the State Department to secure Warmbier's release previous year. US officials believe that harsh sanctions have been instrumental in the "maximum pressure campaign" to bring Kim to the negotiating table.
