  • The curious case of Indias trade with Hermit Kingdom North Korea

'The test now is this declaration that was signed with the US President in front of the world's media that must stand, and the onus now is on North Korea to prove that it's genuine, ' she told reporters.

Even after sanctions are lifted, North Korea will likely pursue state-managed growth because loosening controls is potentially destabilizing for the regime, says Kim Byung-yeon, an economics professor at Seoul National University.

But confusion grows over what Trump was referring to by stopping "war games" - a term he repeatedly used during post-summit interviews.

Although Trump said the process to search for more remains will begin "immediately", it's unclear when or if it will happen. The country has one of the lowest levels of foreign exchange and the country charges tourists and visiting journalists in US Dollars.

Trump also said he hopes the thaw in relations with North Korea will eventually allow him to withdraw US troops from the peninsula. Independent experts estimate North Korea now has enough fissile material for 20 to 60 bombs, and it has tested missiles that could potentially deliver a nuclear weapon to the USA mainland.

"While the suspension of our military exercises is easily reversible, we shouldn't be stopping any joint exercises with our allies", Gallagher says.

So it seems to be all on for tomorrow on the luxurious island of Sentosa which has been sealed off for days, locked down in a security zone, as are areas surrounding the two hotels in downtown Singapore where the leaders are staying.

China's foreign minister suggested on Tuesday that sanctions relief could be considered following Trump and Kim's meeting, Reuters reported.

The tweets are in response to President Donald Trump's historic Singapore Summit with Kim.

"The Chinese side believes that ... the actions taken by the UN Security Council should support the current diplomatic dialogues and efforts in progressing towards denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula", he added. "Adhering to UNSC sanctions resolutions, India has banned all trade, except food and medicine, with Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea with effect from April this year", according to a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs said back in October 2017.

Beijing has suggested global sanctions against Pyongyang could be eased, just hours after a historic summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ended in a joint statement on "complete denuclearisation" of the Korean peninsula.

From 1950 to 1953 the Korean War waged on.
