China's Xi says looks forward to smooth US-North Korea talks

'Replacement of US State Secretary Won't Affect Bilateral Coordination'

Yang touted the "positive changes" on the Korean peninsula.

Chung is set to meet with Chinese President Xi Jingping on Monday evening ahead of his visit to Russian Federation on Tuesday.

Last week, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and envoys dispatched by South Korean President Moon Jae-in agreed at a meeting in Pyongyang to hold an inter-Korean summit late next month.

The South Korean officials who carried Kim's invitation to Washington are visiting China and Japan this week to update state heads on the talks.

Foreign Minister Taro Kono said Monday that Japan, together with South Korea, will continue to maximize pressure on North Korea until Pyongyang takes concrete action toward the complete abandonment of nuclear weapons and missiles. Kono said a verbal promise of denuclearization is not enough and that he and Suh agreed that the two sides, along with the USA, will keep pressuring North Korea until it fulfills the promise with concrete actions.

'Fortnite' Gets Xbox One Cross-Platform Support
The blog reads, "On phones and tablets, Fortnite is the same 100-player game you know from PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac". Sony's PS4 cross-plays with only the PC and still disregards Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch platforms.

However, there has been no word from the secretive state on the potential for a meeting with the US, South Korea's Ministry of Unification said on Monday.

China looks forward to smooth talks between the two Koreas and between the United States and North Korea and substantive progress in the denuclearization process and normalization of ties, Xi added.

Cheong Wa Dae plans to iron out the main issues through talks with North Korea and the April and May, before proceeding to four-party or six-party talks.

China is North Korea's only diplomatic ally and its most important trade partner.

Trump has spoken with both President Xi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe since Thursday's announcement, and said Xi "appreciates that the working to solve the problem diplomatically rather than going with the ominous alternative".
