China wasn’t at the table but Trump-Kim talks reinforced its role

US President Donald Trump, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un leave after a signing ceremony Tuesday at the Capella resort on Sentosa island in Singapore.

The zany former National Basketball Association star, whose warm relationship with Kim has given him newfound fame ever since his playing days ended, was present in Singapore for the Trump-Kim summit as a goodwill ambassador. However, no specific plan or timeline was set forth for the denuclearization.

Still, he credited the summit for starting a diplomatic process between North Korea and the United States.

"I'll give whatever support is needed to my friends, President Donald Trump and Marshall Kim Jong Un", Rodman tweeted ahead of the summit. If Trump can pull this off, more power to him.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang denied Trump's allegation that Beijing, in the last few months, has relaxed implementation of sanctions in the last few months, saying the UN Security Council resolutions on imposing sanctions on North Korea also provides for relaxing or suspending them, if situation improves.

U.S. military exercises with South Korea have been a key pillar of the defence relationship between the two countries that, despite a 1953 armistice, remain technically at war with North Korea. "And today is a great day for everybody-Singapore, Tokyo, China-it's a great day". Rodman even said he "showed my loyalty and trustworthy to this country" by being present at the historic summit.

"I just wanted to see it get done so we all can live good together", Rodman said. I don't understand why people suddenly feel positive toward Kim following his media exposure via the two Koreas' summit.
