After the unprecedented summit between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, the array of international sanctions on North Korea is back in focus.
The United States pushed through a series of UN resolutions last year that significantly escalated the pressure on North Korea’s economy in response to Pyongyang’s repeated tests to advance its nuclear weapons program.
China, which accounts for the vast majority of North Korea’s foreign trade, said it was enforcing the sanctions, despite skepticism from some analysts.
After the summit Tuesday, China hinted that sanctions relief could follow the Trump-Kim summit in Singapore.
“The relevant UN resolutions say based on how North Korea has followed and implemented the resolutions, sanctions can be adjusted accordingly, including suspending or lifting relevant measures,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said.
Trump said at a news conference in Singapore that sanctions would only be removed “when we are sure the nukes are no longer a factor.” He acknowledged that could take a long time.
