Direct communication with North Korea underway on its nuclear & missile programs

Direct communication with North Korea underway on its nuclear & missile programs

"We have lines of communication to Pyongyang", he said.

On Saturday, the Secretary of State said that the U.S. 'have a couple, three channels open to Pyongyang.' So far, the leader of the North Korea prefers to avert any possibilities of the talks, so the diplomats and top officials from many countries offered their good services in this dark situation. "North Korean officials have shown no indication that they are interested in or are ready for talks regarding denuclearization", she said.

"I know President Trump is very much looking forward to the upcoming summit as is everyone on his team", said Tillerson, who was due to meet Xi later in the day.

Asked whether China was involved in brokering the communications, Tillerson reportedly said: "Directly".

On Thursday, China said it was ordering North Korean firms on its territory to close by January.

South Korean officials have voiced concerns that North Korea could conduct more provocative acts near the anniversary of the founding of its communist party on October 10, or possibly when China holds its Communist Party Congress on October 18.

Mom flew to Germany, left 4 kids home alone in Iowa
A mother faces multiple charges after allegedly leaving her kids at home to fend for themselves while she took a trip to Europe. Macke left the country the day before and was en route to Germany for a trip she expected to run until October 1, police said.

While Tillerson has said similarly moderate things before - in August he noted North Korea's "restraint" and said the USA wanted more goodwill gestures from the regime - his latest remarks in Beijing appeared tailored for a Chinese audience.

Yang, who is China's most senior diplomat, said Trump's trip was of "great importance" for Sino-US relations.

US President Donald Trump warned this week that he was "totally prepared" to take military action against North Korea if needed in the face of its ongoing nuclear and missile tests. President Trump is to visit China in November as part of his tour of five Asian nations. The representative of Korea also denounced the American leader that he has signed the decree about introduction of sanctions against North Korea.

During their first meeting, at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida in April, they established four high-level dialogues over issues such as trade, diplomacy and security.

Washington has repeatedly called on China to help restrain Pyongyang, as China is believed to be responsible for almost 90% of North Korea's trade revenue.
