USA lays down gauntlet to China on N. Korea regime

In Washington began talks on North Korea, involving top diplomats and defense chiefs of the US and China.

Beijing, which wants resumed USA negotiations with North Korea, was hoping for "positive outcomes" from Wednesday's dialogue, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said.

The United States pressed China to exert more economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea to help rein in its nuclear and missile programmes during a round of high-level talks in Washington yesterday. "The U.S. once again condemns the brutality of the North Korean regime as we mourn its latest victim", said Trump. Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi and Gen. Fang Fenghui, the chief of the People's Liberation Army's Joint Staff, led their country's delegation.

U.S. President Donald Trump blamed the "brutality of the North Korean regime" for Warmbier's death.

North Korea hasn't conducted a nuclear test explosion as feared earlier this year - a possible outcome of Chinese pressure. The U.S. has been pressing Pyongyang to halt its nuclear weapons development and urging China and other countries to starve the North of funding for the program.

"This college kid never should have been detained in the first place", said Portman, who previously revealed that he met secretly with North Korean officials in NY last December to press for Warmbier's release.

Trump said Wednesday at a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa that USA has "a very good relationship with China and I do like President Xi".

In January a year ago, South Korean soldiers fired warning shots at a suspected North Korean drone that flew across the western part of the border.

"He was the best guy I knew".

Democrats call secret health care talks outrageous
Asked whether he has seen the bill, Arizona Republican John McCain said on Tuesday: "No, nor have I met any American that has". Grassley also told reporters that big social reforms result from bipartisanship and the Affordable Care Act was partisan.

The Ohio hometown of Otto Warmbier, who died last week after his return from 17 months in detention in North Korea, gathered at the 22-year-old's alma mater Thursday to bid him farewell.

"It's a total disgrace what happened to Otto".

Trump, however, did not say what such circumstances would be or when the potential meeting with Kim might take place.

"Now, the assessment of risk for Americans visiting North Korea has become too high", said the China-based Young Pioneer Tours.

Under their proposal, the Treasury Department would be ordered to prohibit all financial transactions related to travel to North Korea by Americans, unless specifically authorized by a US license.

North Korea's continued pursuit of nuclear weapons has drawn global criticism, notably sanctions by the United Nations Security Council.

Spicer said Trump would be willing to meet Kim under the right conditions, but "clearly we're moving further away, not closer to those conditions".

The fact that North Korea is now a nuclear-armed state is in no small part a effect of almost three decades of ill-conceived American and worldwide policy.

Warmbier was among the estimated 5,000 non-Chinese who visit North Korea every year on packages that often include trips to Pyongyang, the capital, as well as the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas, Mount Paektu and sometimes the Masik ski resort.
