"It's a process and it's really moving rapidly", he added.
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.

Smith let Justify roll through a first quarter in:23.37, then subtly eased up the tempo to mark the half-mile in:48.11. Seattle Slew's Triple Crown - four years after that of Secretariat , was swiftly followed by Affirmed's in 1978.
The agreement has four points, with the third stating that 'the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula'.
