China Sending Special Envoy to NKorea

China sending special envoy to NKorea, state media said Wednesday, after US President Donald Trump concluded an Asian tour to rally support against Pyongyang’s nuclear threats.

President Xi Jinping’s special envoy, Song Tao, is going to NKorea Friday to discuss the Chinese Communist Party’s congress, which took place last month, Xinhua news agency said, without providing more details.

The announcement came a day after the end of Trump’s %-nation tour of Asia, including meetings with Xi during which the US leader urged his Chinese counterpart to act fast to rein in NKorea, warning that “time is quickly running out”.

The US administration thinks China’s economic leverage over NKorea is the key to strong-arming Pyongyang into halting its nuclear weapons and missile programs.

Sunday, President Trump said President Xi stated that “he is upping the sanctions against” NKorea, though China has not announced its new punitive measures.
