Meeting in Singapore

In early June, Donald trump and Kim Jong-UN agreed that Pyongyang cease nuclear and missile programs, in response to the stabilization of relations between the two States and the termination of a formal state of war on the Korean Peninsula in 1950-1953 the years passed the fighting stopped after the signing of the armistice agreement.

However, since then, there has been no concrete steps. The DPRK continues to expect the US to implement the agreements reached, and the White house expresses dissatisfaction over «the lack of new steps from Pyongyang on nuclear disarmament».

But in may, the DPRK blew up three of the four tunnels at a nuclear test site, Pungere. Later the North Korean leadership has promised that completely cover the missile range in Chanchani and dismantle nuclear facilities in Yongbyon. Pyongyang has also declared its readiness to foreign checks.

Russia, in turn, urged the international community on the site of the UN Security Council to pay attention to the steps North Korea in the denuclearization process and respond to the easing of sanctions. According to foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, «the action should proceed in response to the action.» The head of Russian diplomacy stressed that such an approach is necessary to avoid the situation around the Iranian nuclear deal, when Washington under false pretenses unilaterally withdrew from the agreement, thus violating obligations under UN security Council resolutions.
