Kim, Pompeo agree to 2nd US-North Korea summit 'at earliest date'

"Recently, as the US side has been constantly escalating trade friction toward China, it has also adopted a series of actions on the Taiwan issue that harm China's rights, and has made groundless criticism of China's domestic and foreign policies", Wang said.

Pompeo said it is important for the two allies to have a "fully coordinated, unified view of how to proceed, which will be what is needed if we are going to be successful on denuclearizing North Korea".

"These actions have damaged our mutual trust, cast a shadow over the future of China-US relations, and go against the interests of the people of the two countries", Wang told Pompeo.

"I do want to share with you my visit with Chairman Kim Jong-un yesterday, the progress we made, .to make sure we are working together on our joint mission we've talked about before- the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

Before reporters were ushered from the room, Pompeo focused instead on what the two sides agreed on: the importance of denuclearising of North Korea.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his Chinese counterpart had a tense standoff Monday as relations deteriorate between the countries over an escalating tariff war and accusations by the U.S. that Beijing is interfering in next month's elections.

"Recently, as the US side has been constantly escalating trade friction toward China, it has also adopted a series of actions on the Taiwan issue that harm China's rights, and has made groundless criticism of China's domestic and foreign policies".

Later, South Korea said the North had agreed to hold a second summit with the United States as soon as possible, following the landmark event between Mr Trump and Mr Kim in the summer.

Brett Kavanaugh Confirmed To Supreme Court By 50-48 Vote
Christine Blasey Ford testifies to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, on September 27, 2018. Senators have been confronted by protesters who oppose the Kavanaugh nomination, and police at the U.S.

At last month's inter-Korean summit, the North expressed its willingness to close the Yongbyon nuclear complex if Washington takes corresponding action, which Moon said would include a declaration of an end to the 1950-53 Korean War.

The trade war between China and the U.S. is however being seen as a barrier to co-operation in the North Korean crisis. Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported that Kim had "warmly welcomed" Pompeo in Pyongyang and "spoke highly of him".

Specifically, Pompeo revealed that North Korea agreed to allow worldwide inspectors to survey their nuclear and missile testing sites. Pompeo was hit by North Korean officials a few months ago as having a "gangster-like demand for denuclearization".

"For Asia, the severity of China-U.S. frictions is taking up much attention and is, to some extent, diluting attention paid to the Korean peninsula issue", it said.

The country's state newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, featured eight photos of the meeting on its front page, including various shots of Kim and Pompeo smiling and shaking hands - and some with Kim's sister Kim Yo Jong in attendance.

A meeting of top USA and Chinese diplomats in Beijing to discuss North Korean nuclear disarmament has got off to a frosty start.

The US diplomat also met with Xi during a similar trip to the region in June.

"I would certainly expect so", the official said.
