China and Russian Federation to Hold Anti-Missile Drill Simulations

China and Russian Federation to Hold Anti-Missile Drill Simulations

Chinese President Xi Jinping's special envoy to Pyongyang, Song Tao, met with a series of North Korean officials over the weekend to discuss the situation on the Korean Peninsula, and much attention was fixed on whether the diplomat would meet leader Kim Jong-un.

China has not officially provided any details of Song's visit to Pyongyang or his meetings with North Korean officials.

South Korea and the United States say, however, that it is exclusively created to shoot down missiles from North Korea.

The two sides are also likely to discuss ways to thoroughly implement UN Security Council resolutions, including banning the hiring of North Korean laborers, and Russia's road map for resolving the North's nuclear issue in a step-by-step manner.

President Donald Trump is set to announce this week on whether the USA will designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism to further pressure the regime over its nuclear and missile developments. In his discussions with North Korea's senior official Choe Ryong-hae, Song briefed him about the latest political change taking place in China where Xi has been re-elected as the chief of CPC's central committee.

The department made no mention of North Korea's nuclear or missile programs, which are strongly opposed by China.

Relations between the two neighboring communist countries have shown signs of fraying in recent years as North Korea stepped up its missile and nuclear tests, and China supported US -led efforts to impose increasingly tougher sanctions against the North.

Song also traveled to Hoechang County, west of Pyongyang, to tour what was Chinese military forces' headquarters during the 1950-53 Korean War, it also said. China sent an envoy to North Korea after each of the past two party congresses, in 2007 and 2012. "The key to easing the situation in the peninsula lies in the hands of Washington and Pyongyang".
