China seeks early US-N. Korea talks

"History shows that trade wars are never a solution", the minister said at an annual press conference.

A quick recap on what's taken place so far this year: North Korean leader Kim Jong-un signaled a willingness to participate in the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in South Korea during his New Year's address.

The North also agreed to hold a historic summit between its leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae In in late April.

South Korean senior officials left for the US on Thursday to brief US President Donald Trump and his staff, likely to include Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, on the outcomes of their recent trip to North Korea.

"This proves that China's proposal of suspension for suspension was the right prescription for the problem and created basic conditions for the improvement of inter-Korean relations", Wang said.

He also praised the China's suspension-for-suspension program to improve the inter-Korean bilateral relationship.

"During the Pyeongchang Olympics the DPRK (North Korea) did not conduct any nuclear test and the U.S. and ROK (South Korea) suspended joint exercises. proving that China's proposition of suspension for suspension was right for the problem".




China, however, will "definitely" take necessary steps if Washington puts the tariffs in place, indicating Beijing is ready to implement retaliatory measures against the United States.

China's foreign minister Wang Yi called on the United States and North Korea to have talks as soon as possible.

The relationship between Seoul and Pyongyang has been ostensibly improving after North Korea chose to join the February 9-25 Olympics in South Korea.

"Everything will operate in the sunshine", Wang said.

A new blueprint for cooperation between the two sides will be fostered this year.

China's "Belt and Road" initiative and the role of Macau and Portuguese-speaking countries are the subject of a book that has just been published by the International Institute of Macau (IIM) at a time when the issue is being showcased due to its links to the Greater Bay Area project comprising Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macau.
