I don't see them giving up nukes either. At most, we may get some sort of limit to how many nukes, what types of nukes, and what sorts of numbers of delivery systems for the nukes.

But no nukes? Not gonna happen.

Just look at Libya after giving up nukes. Not so great. Look at Iraq, they tried to get nukes, but failed, then were invaded. Iran is being bullied around because of its lack of nukes, and we'll probably be at war with them before too long.

If you don't have nukes, yu aren't taken seriously. Kim isn't too stupid to see that.
