China Tells the US to Stop Criticizing Beijing's Policies

On Oct. 8, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, arrived in Beijing on Monday afternoon, travelling from Seoul.

"These actions have affected the mutual trust between both sides, and has cast a shadow over the prospect of China-US relations, which completely go against the interest of our two peoples", Wang said at a media conference.

Kim Jong Un has agreed to hold a second summit with US President Donald Trump as soon as possible, Seoul said Sunday, after Washington's top diplomat held "productive" talks on denuclearisation with the North Korean leader in Pyongyang. This time Pompeo met Kim twice - once for negotiations and then for a working lunch on the bucolic grounds of the guest house where Pompeo's staff was installed for the day.

Speaking to reporters en route to Japan, Pompeo said the plan was to "develop options for both location and timing" for a second summit, although he doubted they would "get it nailed" down mostly due to scheduling and logistics issues.

The U.S. Secretary of State is making one last stop before returning home.

"While the USA side has constantly escalated trade frictions with China, it has also taken actions regarding Taiwan that harm China's core interests", Wang said.

President Moon Jae-in on Monday said the geopolitical order on the Korean Peninsula was taking on a new form, citing developments concerning North Korea.

Pompeo's bodyguard was also ordered to leave his weapon behind during the negotiations.

Pompeo said he was also hopeful that Kim would allow inspectors to visit a "missile engine test site", believed to be a facility in the town of Tongchang-ri that North Korea says it has begun dismantling.

Kim said progress is being made implementing the decisions he reached with Trump in Singapore in June, according to KCNA, and expressed his gratitude to Trump, adding that agreement had been reached to hold a second summit "as soon as possible". "But we will get there", Pompeo said. Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported that Kim had "warmly welcomed" Pompeo in Pyongyang and "spoke highly of him".

"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.

He briefed Wang on his visit to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), voiced the USA side's appreciation of China's consistent position on the Korean Peninsula and its efforts on denuclearization, and expressed a willingness to continue related cooperation. "But if you look at the approach, we are in lockstep with each of those two countries in terms of how we approach achieving the results that everyone is aimed at".

On Sunday, Pompeo met Kim during a trip to Pyongyang, his fourth visit to the country this year.

North Korea's state newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, featured eight photos of the meeting on its front page, including shots of Kim and Pompeo smiling and shaking hands, as well as some with Kim's sister Kim Yo Jong.

During Mr Pompeo's last visit to Pyongyang in July, he was denounced for making "gangster-like demands". According to the former official, the North Korean diplomats told him that denuclearization for them refers to a process by which the USA also reduces its nuclear weapons, possibly worldwide.

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