Korea's Security Adviser in Beijing, Set to Meet Xi

North Korean minister'to visit Sweden ahead of Trump Kim talks

In Beijing on Monday, Xi told Chung the Korean peninsula faces an important opportunity for talks to ease the situation.

Chung is set to meet with Chinese President Xi Jingping on Monday evening ahead of his visit to Russian Federation on Tuesday. "Once again, we expect that China will continue to play an active and leading role and the South Korean government will continue to coordinate closely with China".

Just days after he stood outside the White House and announced the planned meet between the USA president and North Korean leader, Chung Eui-yong was in Beijing to brief China's top diplomat Yang Jiechi on the fast-moving efforts to address the nuclear standoff.

Chief of the country's presidential national security office Chung Eui-yong, made the request when he met with US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster in Washington.

Chung told reporters at the airport that South Korea will do all it can to ensure talks between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, and Kim's separate talks with Trump, achieve fruitful results.

In response, Yang said that the recent positive developments on the Korean Peninsula will put the issue of the North's denuclearization back on the track of dialogue.

China looks forward to smooth talks between the two Koreas and between the United States and North Korea and substantive progress in the denuclearization process and normalization of ties, Xi added.

North Korea's silence on its upcoming summits with the United States and South Korea is probably due to caution over organising its stance regarding the meetings, South Korea's Ministry of Unification said on Monday.

"(The government) will deploy all possible means to respond to US steel tariffs measures and make an all-out effort", Kim said, without elaborating.
