WASHINGTON: Donald Trump on Monday (Jul 9) raised concerns that Beijing may be seeking to derail efforts aimed at denuclearising North Korea, but added that he was confident that Pyongyang leader Kim Jong Un will uphold his pact with the United States president.

"I have confidence that Kim Jong Un will honor the contract we signed &, even more importantly, our handshake. We agreed to the denuclearisation of North Korea," Trump wrote on Twitter. 

"China, on the other hand, may be exerting negative pressure on a deal because of our posture on Chinese Trade-Hope Not!"
