North Korea commits to denuclearization

Daily WireOn Wednesday, China said that it secured a commitment from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to denuclearize the Korean peninsula during a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“It is our consistent stand to be committed to denuclearization on the peninsula, in accordance with the will of late President Kim Il Sung and late General Secretary Kim Jong Il,” Kim said, according to Xinhua.

“The issue of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula can be resolved, if South Korea and the United States respond to our efforts with goodwill, create an atmosphere of peace and stability while taking progressive and synchronous measures for the realization of peace,” Kim continued.

Is it news that Kim is announcing this commitment while in China meeting with their leadership? Did China finally read Kim the riot act?

I wouldn't call this a done deal until we see if he tries it again under the next president. But it's promising, and applying economic pressure to China may well result in an enforceable agreement.
