China advises US-North Korea to initiate denuclearisation talks

Foreign Minister said that the mega Belt and Road project of China to develop Silk Road will have no backdoor deals and will follow all the global rules.

China has responded positively to the developments, as one would expect.

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi speaks during a press conference on the sidelines of the National People's Congress at the media center in Beijing, on March 8, 2018.

Wang further highlighted the impact of dialogue in easing out the tensions between the DPRK and the Republic of Korea during the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games.

China says its proposal urging South Korea and the U.S. to suspend joint military drills in exchange for North Korea stopping their nuclear tests, played a key role in the rapprochement between the two Koreas.

On Tuesday, South Korean officials said the two Koreas agreed to hold a summit at the truce village of Panmunjeom in late April, with the North voicing readiness to talk with the United States about denuclearization and normalization of bilateral ties.

He said China would work with the other members to help the group "meet worldwide expectations, take a clearer stand on major worldwide and regional issues and play a more active role in regional co-operation and global economic governance".

Senate considers deregulation of banks
The language in the bill now says "the Fed shall tailor the rules for the biggest banks", instead of may. The banking industry cheered the legislation's progress on Tuesday. "I'm going to keep pushing for it".

North Korea and the United States reached a framework agreement in Geneva in 1994 to freeze construction of the North's nuclear reactors, but that accord unravelled in 2003.

The US, which only this week increased its sanctions on Pyongyang over the death of Mr Kim's brother Kim jong-nam, has said it is open to talking to North Korea, but only if it commits to denuclearisation.

"Despite light at the end of the tunnel, the journey ahead won't be smooth".

"The proposed China-ASEAN strategic partnership vision 2030 will lead to better coordination between the Belt and Road Initiative and ASEAN's development plans", Wang said.

It was not clear in Wang's comments which parties might be insincere about coming to a solution - possibly all of them. In the past, Chinese analysts have suggested that Washington does not truly want to solve the Korea issue, because a lasting peace there would remove the rationale for its bases in South Korea.

"All must demonstrate political courage and make political decision".

"As long as China-Japan relations continue to improve, things will naturally move forward", Wang said.
