  • US President Donald J. Trump speaks to the press while participating in the ASEAN East Asia meeting

A senior Chinese diplomat will travel to North Korea on Friday as a "special envoy" of Chinese president Xi Jinping amid growing pressure on Pyongyang to curtail its nuclear and missile program. Therefore, no one has right to fault with it", the newspaper wrote, according to the official Korean Central News Agency, referring to North Korea's official name: "the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Visiting Seoul last week, Trump warned North Korea he was prepared to use the full range of USA military power to stop any attack, but also urged Pyongyang to "make a deal".

China just had its National Congress, the closest thing the Communist party has to elections.

"Even just at a basic level of getting a sense of where Kim Jong Un is at and what are the possibilities", said Delury.

However, it is unclear where Song will meet the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un. Song, who now holds the position of minister of the global liaison department of the CCP, already visited Vietnam and Laos immediately after the close of the 19th Party Congress.

China usually informs other communist countries of the results of the National Congress, so the meeting may not discuss North Korea's ballistic missiles.

However, North Korea has been clear in its opposition to diplomatic talks that involve abandoning its nuclear program.

Donald Trump canceled the trip to the North Korean Border holding bad weather as the reason.

Yuan Peng, vice-president of the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations, said the envoy's trip shows the value China places on its traditional friendship with North Korea and sends a signal that bilateral ties are improving.

In a regular briefing Thursday (Nov. 16), Geng Shuang, a spokesman with the Chinese foreign ministry reaffirmed Beijing's support for the "freeze for freeze" proposal, describing it as "the most feasible and reasonable solution under the current circumstances".

"We believe that the freeze-for-freeze initiative is the most viable and reasonable plan against the current backdrop, which can not only alleviate the current tensions, but also addresses the most urgent security concerns of all sides", Geng told reporters at a regular briefing. Xi has never met Kim.

The state-run media outlet criticized Trump for slandering "the happy life of the great Korean people" by presenting real, well-documented examples of North Korean atrocities against its own people, such as the brutal prison camps where hundreds of thousands of people experience unimaginable horrors and the theft of state resources by elites as the people starve.

China's new special envoy for North Korea, Kong Xuanyou, is not believed to have visited the country since assuming the job in August.
