Korean peace declaration ‘is possible without China, but would be weaker’

A declaration to officially end the Korean war without China is technically possible, but its effectiveness may be weakened considering Beijing’s geopolitical importance over the region, observers say.
Last week US President Donald Trump suggested that he and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un might be able to fashion a peace agreement at their meeting in Singapore on June 12 – a meeting that may involve South Korean President Moon Jae-in, but to which China has not been invited.
