Chinese president's special envoy to visit N. Korea this week

Following Donald Trump-Xi Jinping meeting, China to send special envoy to North Korea

Mr Trump said in Beijing last week that the world must "act fast" to confront Pyongyang's development of nuclear weapons.

Chinese President Xi Jinping's special envoy will visit North Korea from November 17, days after President Xi Jinping met with United States President Donald Trump, China's official Xinhua news agency said on Wednesday.

On Donald Trump's recent trip to South Korea, the United States president toned down his rhetoric and urged North Korea to come to the table and "make a deal".

The UN sanctions include China closing all North Korean businesses and joint ventures in China, capping oil supply and preventing any more North Koreans from working in China to earn cash for the regime.

"North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success", the president said in September.

Trump, who wrapped up his five-nation tour of Asia yesterday, has warned the North Korean dictator of dire consequences if he went ahead with the nuclear programme.

U.S. officials want Chinese authorities to clamp down on unauthorised trade that they say is still trickling across the North Korean border. "Progress is being made", the president tweeted.

He will "inform the DPRK of the 19th CPC National Congress and visit the DPRK", Xinhua said on Wednesday, using the North's official name and referring to China's recently concluded Communist Party Congress at which Xi further cemented his power.

Song Tao, head of the Chinese Communist Party's International Liaison Department, will visit Pyongyang on Friday to brief North Korea officials about last month's party congress, according to the official Xinhua News Agency.
