North Korea send's their Diplomat to key ally China
Evolutional Blogs  - North Korea's foreign minister is set to arrive in key ally China for talks over stalled efforts to persuade Pyongyang to dismantle its nuclear weapons programs.

Ri Yong Ho was scheduled to meet Friday with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi, according to China's Foreign Ministry.

China is the North's most important economic and political partner, but has signed on to United Nations economic sanctions aimed at pressuring leader Kim Jong Un to abandon his drive to develop nuclear weapons and the ballistic missiles to deliver them.

Kim sharply raised tensions with nuclear and missile tests last year, but suddenly reached out to South Korea and the United States this year with a vague nuclear disarmament pledge.

North Korea is now seeking security guarantees from the U.S. and relief from international sanctions.

Ri is also expected to be briefed on discussions last week between Chinese President Xi Jinping and President Donald Trump, who recently announced that his next meeting with Kim would likely happen in January or February.

Despite the optimism among some circles generated by Kim and Trump's June summit meeting in Singapore, little has transpired since then.
