  • US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, alongside US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has spoken out against North Korea's treatment of a US student who died after a long detention in Pyongyang

"The website will help promote understanding of North Korea's foreign affairs and policy and help boost ties with other countries", the Korean Central News Agency said in a statement.

Otto Warmbier, 22, suffered severe brain damage in North Korea and died on Monday following 18 months of captivity in North Korea after he was sentenced to hard labor for stealing a political poster from a hotel.

USA lawmakers are pressing for a tough response against Pyongyang over its treatment of the 22-year-old university student, who was accused of trying to steal a propaganda banner while visiting with a tour group and was convicted of subversion.

At the meeting, Yang extended Chinese President Xi Jinping's honest wishes to Trump and noted that the two nations have made new and important progress on bilateral ties following Xi's Florida meeting with Trump in April.

"While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out", Mr. Trump said in a Twitter message. "At least I know China tried!"

These statements came not simply after a series of North Korean missile tests, but also following the North Korean regime's incarceration and killing of USA citizen Otto Warmbier.

The death of an American college student after his imprisonment in North Korea is threatening to overshadow the talks at the State Department.

Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi co-chaired the dialogue with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis in Washington D.C. on Wednesday.

US and Chinese diplomats and defense chiefs have begun talks in Washington that are expected to focus on the nuclear and missile threat from North Korea.

-China Diplomatic and Security Dialogue. Thornton cited Chinese restrictions on imports of North Korean coal as "notable" progress. The U.S. side says North Korea will get "top billing" in the discussions. This year's edition separates out the security aspects.

Mattis cited that the dialogue also touched upon the resolution of maritime disputes in the South China Sea.

Those efforts, he explained, include China helping Iraq as that Middle Eastern country seeks to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Divisive trade issues will be dealt with at a later date.

This week, the Trump administration also dismissed suggestions by China and South Korea for a freeze on U.S.

Two of these departments are for Asia (one for China, Japan and Mongolia and the other for the rest of the continent), one for North America, another for Russian Federation and the former Soviet republics, one for Europe and yet another for Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, reports Efe news. The route to inflicting significant economic pain on Kim's government remains through China. Such a move risks fraying relations between the world's two biggest economies.
