Breaking – Kim Jong Un tells Chinese envoy North Korea is upholding U.S. nuclear deal

When Chinese envoy to North Korea met with Kim Jong Un and was asked if he is going to uphold the denuclearisation agreement it reached with the United States this year, North Korea leader Kim Jong Un told that he will, China’s state broadcaster said.

Chinese parliament chief Li Zhanshu, who is in Pyongyang for celebrations marking 70 years since the founding of North Korea, was told by Kim that North Korea hopes the United States keeps to its side of the agreement, Chinese state broadcaster CCTV reported.

Kim met U.S. President Donald Trump in June and agreed to “work toward the complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula”, but negotiations appear to have stalled since then, with both sides increasingly critical of each other over a lack of progress.
