China to send envoy to N. Korea, 1st official since late 2016

BEIJING (Reuters) - A senior Chinese diplomat will visit North Korea from Friday as a special envoy of Chinese President Xi Jinping, Beijing said, although it did not say he was planning to discuss North Korea's nuclear and ballistic programs. On Wednesday, Trump told reporters that China had agreed with the USA on that point during his 12-day trip through Asia that included a state visit to China, where he was hosted by President Xi Jinping.

DONALD Trump tonight warned "twisted" North Korea that he will no longer tolerate what he called its campaign of "nuclear blackmail." .

An editorial in the ruling party newspaper said Trump offended North Korea when he denounced its "cruel dictatorship" during his tour around Asia, according to the Guardian.

The two countries would also "exchange opinions on matters of mutual concern" during the visit, Geng added.

Song would become the first high-level Chinese official to visit North Korea since October 2015, when a member of the Communist Party Politburo committee met with Kim. Xi reportedly sent a response to Kim that expressed a desire for better ties.

Tong Zhao, a fellow at the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy in Beijing, said it was very likely the nuclear standoff would be on the agenda. While it is enforcing harsh new United Nations sanctions targeting the North's sources of foreign currency, Beijing has called for steps to renew dialogue.

On the base, he said, "I discussed with the USA and South Korean military leaders both military options and readiness to respond to North Korean provocation or offensive actions".

During his visit to Seoul last week, Trump warned North Korea he was prepared to use the full range of USA military power to stop any attack, but in a more conciliatory appeal than ever before he urged Pyongyang to "make a deal" to end the nuclear standoff. "We will not be intimidated", President Trump said. "But we will never run from it", President Trump said.

"China is sending an Envoy and Delegation to North Korea - A big move, we'll see what happens!" he tweeted Thursday.

Trump is recapping what he says are the successes of his almost two-week trip to Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines. "We have to denuclearize North Korea". Song, who now holds the position of minister of the worldwide liaison department of the CCP, already visited Vietnam and Laos immediately after the close of the 19th Party Congress.

After several months of unprecedented testing earlier this year, North Korea has not fired a rocket or tested a nuclear weapon since it launched a ballistic missile over Japan on September 15. Then the parties would come together to talk.

That means the next time the United States military flies the B-1 in a training exercise near or over the Korean Peninsula - which it did earlier this month - North Korea might think the plane is carrying nuclear weapons.

Previously warm ties soured a year ago over Seoul's decision to deploy a sophisticated USA missile defense system aimed at guarding against North Korean threats.

Trump spoke Wednesday from the White House about his five-country Asian tour.

While South Korea resisted China's demands to withdraw the system, Beijing appeared satisfied with a pledge from Seoul not to expand it, among other commitments.
