Washington: The US and China agreed on continuing with maximum pressure campaign against Pyongyang ahead of the 12 June Singapore summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, top diplomats of the two countries said today.

The 12 June Singapore summit between Trump and Kim was the main topic of discussion between US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi when the duo met at the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the State Department here.

“We talked about preparations for the President’s 12 June meeting with Kim Jong-un. I had a chance to hear China’s perspective and appreciated their observations on the opportunity that is before the United States, the DPRK and the world,” Pompeo told reporters at a news conference.

He said the US and China discussed “our firm commitment” to maintain pressure on North Korea and to continue fully enforcing all relevant UN Security Council resolutions related to Pyongyang until they see and achieve the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

Wang said he listened to the analysis of Pompeo on the recent development of the situation and his perspectives. “China is firmly committed to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula. This position will not change,” he said.

At the same time, Wang said, we believe that in achieving the process or the goal of denuclearisation, it was necessary to address the legitimate security concerns of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea or DPRK at an appropriate time, and along with the realisation of denuclearisation, it is important to establish a long-term and effective peace mechanism on the Korean Peninsula.

Meanwhile, a UN Security Council committee has agreed to lift a travel ban on North Korean officials heading to Singapore for the planned summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un next month, diplomats said.

Singapore last week asked the sanctions committee to grant an exemption to the North Korean delegation attending the 12 June summit and taking part in preparatory meetings.
