Trump talks of engagement to resolve North Korea crisis

Trump talks of engagement to resolve North Korea crisis

That raised worries in Tokyo that the issue could again hinder ties, at a time when both countries are seeking unity to face the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear and missile development.

Cho added that South Korea and the US agreed during a visit to Seoul by Trump's national security advisers on Monday to formulate a "bold and pragmatic" joint approach.

Moon's envoy, South Korean media mogul Hong Seok-hyun, said Trump spoke of being willing to use engagement to ensure peace. South Korea's presidential envoy said Thursday that Trump is willing to solve the nuclear crisis with its northern neighbor through engagement.

In a speech in Tokyo, the head of the U.S. Pacific Command, Admiral Harry Harris, called North Korea a "clear and unsafe threat" to the United States, Japan and South Korea and stressed the need for more cooperation among the allies and for all countries to implement stronger sanctions on Pyongyang. After the missile launch on May 14, the United States, Japan, and South Korea called for a U.N. Security Council meeting to demand that North Korea alter its current aggressive course and begin dismantling its missile and nuclear programs.

BEIJING: China's foreign minister urged South Korea's new government on Thursday to remove "obstacles" to good relations amid Chinese anger at the United States deployment of an anti-missile system on the Korean peninsula.

Wang and former South Korean Prime Minister Lee Hae-chan were expected Thursday to discuss ways of containing North Korea's missile and nuclear weapons activities.

A separate summit could also be held the following month, Lee said.

"President Moon said he hopes I'd also pass on his gratitude to you for your message of congratulation and the telephone call after he was elected", Lee said, before reporters were asked to leave the room.

Speaking to Lee, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said there had been some "undeserved setbacks" in relations this year, in apparent reference to THAAD.

But a senior North Korean diplomat has said Pyongyang is also open to having talks with Washington under the right conditions.

"This year marks the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between South Korea and China, and we need to respect the things that we have achieved", he said. Trump said last month he wanted South Korea to pay the $1 billion cost of Thaad's deployment in Seongju County, sparking waves of panic here.

The envoy handed Abe a letter from President Moon stating that he hoped to meet Abe in the near future and restart the shuttle diplomacy.

Moon in a phone call with Abe last week said that most Koreans can not accept the agreement.

A special envoy to Russian Federation is expected to head to Moscow next week.
