It increasingly looks like the Trump White House is in the driver’s seat when it comes to stalled negotiations with North Korea over its nuclear weapons program.

North Korea leader Kim Jong Un has in the past days and week seemed somewhat desperate to telegraph to Trump that he is fully committed to denuclearization.

The latest such signalling is reported via Reuters early Sunday:

North Korea leader Kim Jong Un told an envoy of Chinese president Xi Jinping that North Korea is upholding the denuclearisation agreement it reached with the United States this year, China’s state broadcaster said.

Chinese parliament chief Li Zhanshu, who is in Pyongyang for celebrations marking 70 years since the founding of North Korea, was told by Kim that North Korea hopes the United States keeps to its side of the agreement, Chinese state broadcaster CCTV reported.

The Chinese envoy was present in Pyongyang to mark the 70th anniversary of North Korea’s founding, which included the standard sprawling military parade; however conspicuously absent from the parade were North Korea’s intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), thought to be capable of hitting the United States — a clear sign that Kim is taking ongoing diplomatic efforts with the US and South Korea seriously.

CNN described the parade as “considerably understated compared to previous years” which analysts say is “to avoid antagonizing US President Donald Trump”.

Li Zhanshu, Beijing’s third-ranking Communist Party official, headed the Chinese delegation on behalf of President Xi Jinping and delivered a message that there’s a pressing need for North Korea and the US “to thoroughly implement the consensus … to reach the common goal of denuclearisation”, state broadcaster China Central Television reported.
