China says will not attend Vancouver meeting on North…

During the phone talks, the South Korean foreign minister explained to the USA secretary of state about the outcome of the inter-Korean dialogue.

Representatives of the countries that sent troops or other military support to the United Nations -backed effort to repel North Korean forces after the 1950 invasion of South Korea will attend. Several news reports have indicated that China will not be attending.

But Mr Hook said Washington remained in contact with China about enforcing the sanctions and pressuring Mr Kim, and that both Beijing and Moscow would be briefed after the talks.

Speaking in London at an event hosted by British think tank Policy Exchange, LG Chun said China "doesn't have as much influence as we thought".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sidestepped questions Friday about the lack of an invitation to China for the Vancouver meeting, which some have suggested will limit whatever progress can be achieved.

A government official reached Thursday afternoon, who would not speak on the record, was not aware of a formal invitation being extended to China for the summit meeting itself, which features about 20 participants.

"There's no expectation that this meeting in Vancouver will be where a resolution to the crisis is going to be discussed". The official said Canada never got to the "juncture" of inviting China to the actual summit because there was an awareness that Chinese views on the way to move forward are different than those in North America.

Vice President Mike Pence will lead the official United States delegation.


Mr. Tillerson is slated to co-host with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.

The State Department said next week's meeting will begin Monday in Vancouver and "focus on advancing and strengthening diplomatic efforts toward a secure, prosperous and denuclearized Korean peninsula".

Lu's comments were provided on condition that the entire statement be quoted.

According to the ministry, the two diplomats discussed the situation on the Korean Peninsula.

All parties should work to defuse tensions and promote dialogue, rather than blindly resort to pressure and isolation.

Western security officials have accused Russian Federation and China of exporting oil to North Korea in recent months, which would be a violation of United Nations sanctions.

Brian Hook, the State Department's policy director, said that the USA believes that its diplomatic pressure campaign is the best way to force North Korea to the negotiating table, and that maritime interdiction will help to crack down on smuggling and sanctions-busting.

"China is working with us", he said. "This is not an alternative to everything that we are doing", Hook said.
