China suggests sanctions relief for N. Korea after US summit
“The Chinese position echoes comments made by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who called for a lifting of sanctions during a May visit to Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital.
. . . In the past, China has been accused of skirting sanctions to prop up the North Korean government — an accusation it vigorously denies. Geng said Tuesday that China has been following the U.N. sanctions resolutions “comprehensively, accurately and strictly.”
. . . But Trump suggested that China has already been relaxing trade controls.
“Over the last two months the border is more open than it was when we first started,” Trump told reporters in Singapore.”
