Tillerson to host NK meeting in Canada

Trump hints at ‘good relationship with Jong-un Canada, US to host meeting on North Korea

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will head to Canada next week to co-host a meeting of high-level worldwide diplomats focused on expressing solidarity against North Korea's ongoing nuclear weapons and ballistic missile provocations.

"It will only create divisions within the worldwide community and harm joint efforts to appropriately resolve the Korean peninsula nuclear issue", spokesman Lu Kang was quoted as telling reporters in Beijing. South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha is expected to be among the attendees, while US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis will participate in a welcome dinner Monday.

North Korea's first talks with South Korea in more than two years turned tense Tuesday, after representatives of President Moon Jae-in proposed discussions with Kim about giving up his nuclear weapons program.

Russian Federation is also expected to be absent along with China, meaning two of North Korea's most important and influential neighbours will be missing when Freeland and Tillerson sit down with other foreign ministers.

Mr Vorontsov, Head of Department of Korean and Mongolian Studies, Institute of Oriental Studies, visited North Korea in mid-November a year ago.

The measures could include stopping and inspecting ships bound for North Korea.

Stoke interested in ex-Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores
A Stoke delegation has met ex-Watford boss Flores, whose side go to Levante in the Copa del Rey on Thursday. However, the 52-year-old avoided a direct answer, which only fuels speculation.

The UN Security Council has steadily tightened prohibitions on buying the North's goods or supplying it with oil in an effort to discourage leader Kim Jong Un's government from pursuing nuclear and missile technology.

Analysts have warned that the North Korean government uses money laundering and other illicit financial activity to develop its nuclear-weapons program, a concern echoed by the Paris-based task force.

Relations between Pyongyang and Beijing are at a new low, so much so that the North Korean envoy to China refuses to come out of the embassy.

Starting with Kim Jong Un's New Year's address, the regime has made a pivot away from belligerent provocations towards diplomacy, calling for a bilateral solution to the current crisis by working with South Korea. North Korea agreed to send a delegation to the Olympic Games and both sides agreed to hold talks on reducing tensions along their border.

"We understand that it would be the last day of our country'".

There were reports that North Korea had proliferation linkages with Pakistan.
