South Korea's president urged North Korea on Wednesday to present a plan with concrete steps toward denuclearization, raising the pressure on its leader Kim Jong Un during his visit to Beijing to discuss the outcome of his summit with U.S. President Donald Trump. But most don't believe Kim is serious about addressing the worldwide concerns about his country's nuclear weapons program.

The North Korean leader told Mr Xi he would work with China on "opening a new future" on the Korean peninsula, according to the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). What does it mean? Pyongyang so far regarded its nuclear program as vital to its survival in the face of what it viewed as USA hostility, but Kim has indicated he would be willing to shutter the program if his security was guaranteed.
President Trump is condemning the mainstream media for the negative coverage of the joint summit with North Korea.
Kim reportedly agreed to work toward complete denuclearization of the peninsula in exchange for the US suspending all military exercises in South Korea. Though China surely wants a nuclear-free North Korea, one day, its immediate aim is getting Kim on side and North Korea stable. "There's absolutely no integrity in his life and in his presidency overall". Add North Korea as an interest to stay up to date on the latest North Korea news, video, and analysis from ABC News.
"The North Korea-China summit is another step forward in denuclearization", Cheong Wa Dae spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said.
"I don't know exactly what the timing will be for our next conversation with North Korea", the secretary of state said. Going into the summit, Pyongyang repeatedly rejected unilateral nuclear disarmament. The state department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Tuesday that although the U.S. had been in touch with Pyongyang there was nothing to announce on Pompeo's travel plans.
But "China will continue to play a constructive role to this end", Xi said. A large majority of Democrats have little confidence the Kim regime will ever do so.

News of Kim's trip came just hours after Trump threatened China with tariffs on $200 billion worth of goods.

The American military command in South Korea is preparing for the North Koreans to turn over the remains of an unknown number of U.S. or allied service members who have been missing since the Korean War, U.S. officials said Tuesday.
Cha Du-hyeogn, a visiting scholar at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies in Seoul, said the officials' presence signalled North Korea's attempts to synchronise its strategy with China before its next round of meetings with the U.S. on the denuclearisation issue.
One of the officials who spoke to CNN suggested the White House could send an envoy to Pyongyang to collect the remains and escort them home, rather than receiving them at the border, which would be a remarkable media event if it occurred.
For his part, Xi told Kim that China "speaks highly" of his summit with Trump and he urged Washington and Pyongyang to implement their agreement struck in Singapore.
