BEIJING (Reuters) - China, Japan and South Korea have all acknowledged a corner has been turned on the Korean peninsula issue, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday.

All three have all acknowledged that sanctions remain in place on North Korea until denuclearisation is complete, Pompeo said at a joint news conference in Beijing with the Chinese government’s top diplomat, State Councillor Wang Yi.
