WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - US President Donald Trump's agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may benefit the Korean Peninsula in the short term, however, the gain will come at the expense of weakening US stance in the region, Senator Tim Kaine said on Tuesday.

"My worry is that the president might be willing to do a deal that produces some gain on the Korean Peninsula, short-term gain, but at the expense of broader [US] withdrawal from the region," Kaine told the Washington Post.

Kaine explained that China is working with North Korea to advance peace negotiations in a way that would lead to more Chinese dominance in Asia.
