Experts attending a Shanghai forum said that the planned U.S.-North Korea summit will inevitably occur, although disagreements on a detailed road map for denuclearization and the removal of U.S. forces from the Korean Peninsula may prevent any major deal in the near future.

The diplomatic situation was discussed by university scholars and defense officials from China, the U.S., South Korea and Japan during Shanghai Forum 2018, which kicked off Saturday.
