North Korea pledges to destroy missile test engine site

Is Kim trading a war-games suspension for sanctions relief in Beijing?

A propaganda poster blaming United States and hostile countries' sanction is seen in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) in Pyongyang August 17, 2017.

After an Air Koryo flight carrying Kim arrived at Beijing's Capital International Airport in the morning, Kim immediately headed to the Diaoyutai state guest house in Beijing, the first destination of Kim's two-day trip in China, the sources said.

"The VFW salutes President Trump for bringing this issue to the table, and we thank the North Korean leader for agreeing to it".

The U.S. military will then perform a short ceremony before sending the remains to Hawaii, where they might be properly identified through DNA testing.

Kim praised China as a "clean, handsome and advanced" nation and said he had learned much from the prosperous country before heading back to North Korea.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agreed on Friday to support "efforts to establish complete denuclearization on the Korean peninsula" following the U.S.

"Obviously, it's the very front end of a process. Detailed negotiations have not begun". "President Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most risky problem".

"They've already blown up one of their big test sites, in fact it was actually four of their big test sites, and the big thing is that it will be a total denuclearization, which is already starting to take place", he added.

"It's only a good deal if they dismantle all the facilities at Sohae and re-employ the scientists in something civilian", she said.
