Trump has credited his "maximum pressure" campaign of crippling trade and economic sanctions for bringing Kim to the negotiating table and vowed to keep them in place until North Korea complies with its promises.

Still, after the summit, Trump applauded the North Korean leader and said the people "love" Kim, regardless of Trump's previous remarks denouncing the regime's purported human rights abuses.

China shares a border with North Korea and is the country's largest trading partner.

North Korea also serves as a valuable buffer state between China and US forces in South Korea.

North Korea was told that Trump would 'provide security guarantees, ' with both sides agreeing that the meeting was an 'epochal event'.

Yes. The Kim dynasty, under Kim's father, Kim Jong Il, signed a treaty with the U.S.in 1994, known as the Agreed Framework. Many believe Trump expects to come out with a deal on denuclearisation but North Korea doesn't.

It futher sees the United States and North Korea agree to "establish new relations", and 'join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula'. The country announced in 2005 it had manufactured nuclear weapons.

Yes. During his news conference, Trump said joint military exercises with the South Korean military - typically a show of strength toward Pyongyang - would end immediately, a decision that took Seoul by complete surprise.

Admittedly, Trump said Kim was very pleased with the development. "At the same time, there needs to be a peace mechanism for the peninsula, to resolve North Korea's reasonable security concerns". "I think nobody can doubt the extremely unique and important role China has played".
