Chinese Foreign Minister to visit N.Korea

Chinese Foreign Minister to visit N.Korea

In initial small steps toward reconciliation, South Korea said on Monday it would remove loudspeakers that blared propaganda across the border, while North Korea said it would shift its clocks to align with its southern neighbor.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi will visit North Korea this week, his office said Monday, days after the leaders of the two Koreas held a landmark summit.

In March, Mr Kim made a surprise visit to Beijing to see Chinese President Xi Jinping, his first global trip since taking office, underlining the importance to Pyongyang of its relationship with China.

Any deal with the United States will require that North Korea demonstrate "irreversible" steps to shutting down its nuclear weapons programme, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday. "We are expecting the North's implementation".

Mr Kim and Mr Moon said they would also pursue talks with the USA and China to formally end the Korean War, which ended in 1953 with a truce, not formal peace. Before the summit, only 14.7 percent of those polled said they did, research agency Realmeter said on Monday. Some experts say Kim may announce scraping North Korea's long-range missile program, which has posed a direct threat to the United States.

The Korean War ceased in 1953 with an armistice rather than a peace treaty. This is - the North Korean propaganda playbook is an infinitely rich resource.

China is North Korea's only remaining economic ally, but this will be its highest level visit there in years.

Much now hinges on Kim's upcoming summit with US President Donald Trump, who said the meeting could happen over the next three to four weeks.

Wang's trip comes at a critical time when efforts are being made by both Seoul and Pyongyang towards denuclearising the Korean Peninsula. South Korea and Japan are in the same time zone, nine hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time.

China will still be part of any discussions over a formal peace treaty to replace the armistice signed by China, the USA and North Korea in 1953, ending more than three years of fighting between the North and the South.

The two countries on the divided peninsula have had different time zones since 2015 when the North suddenly changed its standard time to 30 minutes behind the South.
