Report: Leaders Of China And North Korea Reach Decision On Denuclearization Which Will Have The Whole World Cheering

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has reportedly promised to denuclearize the Korean peninsula after meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping. In exchange, China promised to hold a closer relationship to the Korean country who has been ostracized from the international community.

In light of recent political, international events, the relationship between the two countries has been shaky. Also agreed to during the meeting was Jong-Un’s willingness to meet with President Trump.

As Reuters reports, the meeting spanned over the past few days and was “Kim’s first known trip outside North Korea since he assumed power in 2011.” The meeting preceeds several other anticipated meetings between the North Korean dictator and South Korean and American officials.

From Daily Wire:

“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.

Xi said that the decision was a “strategic choice and the only right choice both sides have made based on history and reality, the international and regional structure and the general situation of China-DPRK ties.”

“We are ready to make joint efforts with the DPRK side, conform to the trend of the times, hold high the banner of peace, development, cooperation and mutual benefit, continuously improve the well-being of the two peoples, and make positive contribution to regional peace, stability and development,” Xi continued.

Here’s more, from Reuters:

North Korea’s KCNA news agency made no mention of Kim’s pledge to denuclearize, or his anticipated meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump that is planned for some time in May.

China has traditionally been secretive North Korea’s closest ally but ties have been frayed by its pursuit of nuclear weapons and China’s backing of tough U.N. sanctions in response.

China’s Foreign Ministry cited Kim in a lengthy statement as telling Xi the situation on the Korean peninsula was starting to improve because North Korea had taken the initiative to ease tension and put forward proposals for talks.

The White House responded to the meeting in a statement from Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, NBC News reports:

In a statement Tuesday night, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: “The Chinese government contacted the White House earlier on Tuesday to brief us on Kim Jong Un’s visit to Beijing. The briefing included a personal message from President Xi to President Trump.”

She added: “The United States remains in close contact with our allies South Korea and Japan. We see this development as further evidence that our campaign of maximum pressure is creating the appropriate atmosphere for dialogue with North Korea.”

President Trump referenced on both world leaders in a pair of tweets on Wednesday morning.

“For years and through many administrations, everyone said that peace and the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula was not even a small possibility,” Trump tweeted. “Now there is a good chance that Kim Jong Un will do what is right for his people and for humanity. Look forward to our meeting!”

And, “Received message last night from XI JINPING of China that his meeting with KIM JONG UN went very well and that KIM looks forward to his meeting with me. In the meantime, and unfortunately, maximum sanctions and pressure must be maintained at all cost!”
