What's the status of the US and North Korea's relationship?

Description:

Philip Yun is a former policy advisor for 'East Asian and Pacific Affairs' at the US Department of State under President Bill Clinton and joined us in the studio.


CGTN's Karina Huber sat down with Harvard University Professor Robert Stavins to discuss the status of the Paris Climate Accord.
India's government has moved to scrap parts of the constitution which grant Indian-administered Kashmir significant autonomy.

The disputed territory of Kashmir has been divided between India and Pakistan since their independence from Britain.
Both countries claim it as their own and control parts of it.
Indian-administered Kashmir was granted special autonomy that allowed it to function largely without direct interference from New Delhi.
But that has now changed.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu-nationalist led government has revoked the special status.
And sent additional troops to the area and put the region on lockdown.
It's a move that could have widespread consequences.
So, what's behind this decision? and does it abide by the longstanding consensus over the territory?
