China Applauds US, North Korea for Creating New History

BEIJING – China said on Tuesday the United States and North Korea are creating a new history after the unprecedented summit between the leaders of the two countries in Singapore.

Foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said at a press conference that the direct dialogue between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un at the summit was a good sign, adding that the two countries were creating a new history, which China welcomed.

Following a more than four-hour summit, Trump and Kim signed a joint declaration in which Pyongyang committed to work towards complete denuclearization, with security guarantees from Washington.

Geng said they should now continue to work on building mutual trust to overcome difficulties in the denuclearization process and the establishment of peace.

He also suggested sanctions relief could be considered, adding the United Nations Security Council should support the current diplomatic efforts and contribute to political solutions on the peninsula.

In recent months, China, which is North Korea’s primary trade partner and traditional political ally, has accepted the adoption of tough sanctions against Pyongyang by the Security Council, although it has always advocated dialogue to resolve the crisis.

Geng said China has maintained continuous contact with all parties involved.

Kim made surprise visits to China in March and May to meet President Xi Jinping and discuss the progress made in the run-up to the summit with Trump.

The summit in Singapore was the first between the leaders of North Korea and the US after nearly 70 years of confrontation, and 25 years of failed negotiations and tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear program.
