China, US to hold first diplomatic dialogue today

25 Juin, 2017, 14:42 | Author: Claudine Rigal

"We continue to urge China to exert its unique leverage as North Korea's largest trading partner, including by fully implementing all UN Security Council sanctions", she said, referring to efforts to halt Pyongyang's nuclear program.

In April, Mr Trump hosted China's President Xi Jinping at his Mar-a-Lago resort, dropping his harsh campaign comments about Beijing and hailing the dawn of "a very, very great relationship".

US President Donald Trump has repeatedly slammed North Korea over its treatment of Warmbier, who died within days of returning to the United States.

The officials also will discuss counterterrorism as well as tensions in the South China Sea.

Geng said both bilateral and worldwide issues would be taken up during the dialogue, which will be led on the USA side by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.

"While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out".

China, North Korean's main trading partner, has been accused of not fully enforcing existing United Nations sanctions on its neighbour, and has resisted some tougher measures.

North Korea's treatment of an American student who died after being released from detention in a coma was inhuman and United States patience with Pyongyang is running out, Pentagon chief Jim Mattis said Wednesday. Washington has considered further "secondary sanctions" against Chinese banks and other firms doing business with North Korea.

CHINA on Wednesday called for an early resumption of talks on the Korea Peninsula nuclear issue and reaffirmed its commitment to resolving the issue through negotiations.

The talks are meant to build on progress made when President Donald Trump met China's president in Florida in April. The U.S. side says North Korea will get "top billing" in the discussions.

Tillerson added, "We reiterated to China that they have a diplomatic responsibility to exert much greater economic and diplomatic pressure on the regime if they want to prevent further escalation in the region". He was held for almost a year-and-a-half in North Korea before being sent home in a coma last week.
