The Russian and South Korean leaders agreed that last week's historic summit in Singapore between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would contribute to denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The two leaders posed for the cameras along with their wives Ri Sol-ju and Peng Liyuan, before the North Koreans left for Pyongyang on Wednesday afternoon. Gawking pedestrians watched the passing motorcade, which included Kim's limousine - a black Mercedes with gold emblems on the rear doors - as well as several minibuses and 15 motorcycle police clad in white suits.

Aviation sources said that Air Koryo's An-148 airplane were spotted taking off in Pyongyang early in the day and landing at Beijing's Capital International Airport at about 9:30 a.m. Commercial satellite imagery of the Sohae station from June 12 shows no apparent activity related to dismantlement of its rocket engine test stand, according to 38 North, a Washington-based website that tracks developments in the isolated nation's weapons programs.

'It's not irreversible. They could come back if the dialogue loses speed, or if North Korea doesn't live up to its denuclearisation commitment, ' she said.

Following his summit with Mr Trump, Kim was expected to meet with Chinese leaders to discuss progress in halting his country's missile and nuclear weapons programs in exchange for economic incentives.

Kim and Moon met again in May. South Korean analysts say North Korea allows only infrequent reunions for fear of wasting what it sees as an important diplomatic bargaining chip.

China will continue to play a constructive role to this end, Xi said.

Kim leaves the North Korean Embassy in Beijing in this photo taken by Kyodo on Wednesday. But Beijing is concerned Washington and Pyongyang might move closer at its expense, a possibility that China sees as threatening to its economic and security interests in the region.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has committed to the USA that North Korea will destroy the Ch'olsan County, North Pyongan province testing site, which sometimes is referred to as the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground, CBS News reports.

The executive order contrasted with Trump's statements on a new era of peace and accord with North Korea following his Singapore summit meeting with Kim last week.

Trump has expressed frustration over criticism that he legitimized the communist regime and gave it concessions by meeting with the leader and agreeing to suspend military exercises between South Korea and the U.S. In return, critics say, North Korea committed only to the vaguely worded "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula.

A report by North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency said Mr Kim told Mr Xi at a welcoming banquet on Tuesday that North Korea-China ties are developing into "unprecedentedly special relations".

Now for a bit of a history lesson, kids - the Korean War began in June 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea following a number of clashes.
