"It is also a goal of China's to seek denuclearisation on the Korean peninsula, and without a clear timetable or any specific measures to dismantle nuclear weapons in North Korea, Washington will need Beijing if it wants to apply more pressure to Pyongyang".

It futher sees the USA and North Korea agree to "establish new relations", and 'join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula'.

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.

We're not special, but we're Americans and we know what freedom's like, and we have to stand up for this.

Mintaro Oba, a former US State Department diplomat specialising in the Koreas, said the summit was more about style and symbolism.
