  • Xi Dunford's Visit Shows Improvement in Military Relations

Chinese President Xi Jinping said Thursday that a visit to the China-North Korea border area by the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) chairman shows an improvement in the military relations between China and the U.S.

China's Defense Ministry further said in a statement, "The Chinese military is willing to make efforts with the United States side to strengthen strategic communication, increase strategic mutual trust, deepen practical cooperation, appropriately handle problems and disputes and effectively manage and control risks".

Dunford said the intent was "to the force, to make it clear that that kind of racism and bigotry is not going to stand inside the force".

North Korean media reported on Tuesday that Kim had delayed the decision on firing four missiles towards Guam, a US territory home to a vital air base and Navy facility, while he waited to see what the United States did next.

Trump tweeted early Wednesday that Kim had "made a very wise and well reasoned decision", amid indications North Korea had decided not to proceed with its multiple missile launch.

It also comes ahead of joint military exercises by the US and South Korea next week, which is likely to further aggravate tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Gen. Dunford is in South Korea as part of a diplomatic visit to the peninsula and China in an attempt to ease tensions caused by North Korea's continued provocations.

Joseph Dunford is traveling in Asia and is expected to meet with leaders in China, South Korea and Japan. Army Lt. Gen. Richard D. Clarke, the Joint Staff's director for strategic plans and policy, will lead the effort for the American military.

"The alternative would have been both catastrophic and unacceptable!" The Northern Theater Command is the Chinese unified command nearest North Korea. But the report quoted Kim as saying he would observe, as he put it, the stupid conduct of the Yankees, for a while longer before ordering that missile test. Anthony Kuhn, NPR News, Beijing. Days later, China voted for the USA -drafted resolution.

Mr. Mattis and Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson on Monday wrote in a joint op-ed for The Wall Street Journal that the US was pursuing a "peaceful pressure campaign" against Pyongyang and said the Trump White House has "no interest in regime change or accelerated reunification of Korea".

Next week's start of annual US-South Korean military exercises that enrage the North each year could make diplomacy even more hard.

But Mr. Trump's national security team also was blunt about the dangers North Korea still posed to the region, particularly in the wake of two long-range missile tests and intelligence analysis suggesting that Pyongyang had developed a miniaturized nuclear device.

During Dunford's visit, he and Fang signed an agreement to increase operational communication between the USA and Chinese militaries and mitigate the risk of miscalculation.

The increased communications comes amid rising tensions between the United States and North Korea after the regime tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles last month. "North Korea is nearing a threshold for the red line", Moon said.

"The people worked together to rebuild the country from the Korean War, and we can not lose everything again because of a war", Moon said in a nationally televised news conference.
