Hours after talks between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump in Singapore, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said the Security Council's sanctions against North Korea were created to be adjusted and could be suspended or lifted in accordance with the North's actions.
That suggested that any lasting benefit to Trump on the world stage or at home will depend on whether, in the next stages of negotiations, he can turn the summit's made-for-TV script into tangible progress toward Pyongyang's nuclear disarmament.

Earlier, discussions took place on the possibility of President Moon Jae-in joining Kim and Trump in Singapore for follow-up talks on ending the war, but Moon was not invited.
Meanwhile at the Pentagon, officials ducked in and out of meetings to discuss what would amount to an epic shift in how the U.S. military has been postured in South Korea for decades.
