Top US negotiator arrives in South Korea amid hopes for easing tensions

Donald Trump Rodrigo Duterte

CNN correspondent Will Ripley, who was in Pyongyang at the time of Trump's speech, said last week this type of language is likely to be "more infuriating to the North Koreans than the fiery rhetoric (Trump has) used before", as the USA leader "directly criticized their ideology and authoritarian system".

Song Tao, the head of the worldwide department at the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), comes one week after Xi and US President Donald Trump held a summit in Beijing last Thursday. The report in Xinhua news agency, however, gave no further details about Song's upcoming trip to Pyongyang. However, Xinhua news agency said he will only discuss last month's Chinese Communist Party congress.

"If he meets Kim Jong Un, that would be a very strong messages that North Korea is willing to improve the relationship with China but I would be surprised if that happens", he said.

China and North Korea, together with Vietnam, Cuba, and Laos, are the only five countries in the world still declaring themselves "socialist states".

China is North Korea's traditional ally and accounts for about 90 percent of the isolated nation's external trade - including virtually all its oil supplies.

And here's why this matters: Tweeting out the article only increases the chance of miscalculation between North Korea and the United States while tensions between the two nuclear powers are already sky-high.

US President Donald Trump declared Wednesday that he will not accept a North Korea with nuclear weapons and will continue to put "maximum pressure" on the regime.

The fact that Song was identified as Xi's special envoy also suggests that Xi is personally making a push to open the channel at a higher level and engage more constructively with Kim, Delury said.

It is the first time in about two years that a Chinese special envoy has visited Pyongyang.

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

They are pointing to a series of Asian investments in the United States and the release of three U.S. basketball players on Chinese shoplifting charges, after presidential intervention, as evidence it was a success.

North Korea, which is a "perverted dictatorship", cannot blackmail the world, warned the USA president. The goal of the trip was to discuss trade and efforts to halt North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

Probably not. A recent editorial in North Korean state media deemed the president a "hideous criminal" and sentenced him to death. "But past American presidents have pushed China on North Korea before, and China's never come around".

In a speech to South Korean lawmakers in Seoul, he denounced the North's "cruel dictatorship".
