President Trump says no freeze-for-freeze deal with North Korea

Are Donald Trump And Kim Jong Un The Same Person? There's Photographic Evidence

North Korea's state media is calling on U.S. President Donald Trump to get the death penalty for insulting the country's leader, Kim Jong Un.

Xi is sending a special envoy, Song Tao, to North Korea on Friday.

He will "inform the DPRK of the 19th CPC National Congress and visit the DPRK", Xinhua said on Wednesday, using the North's official name and referring to China's recently concluded Communist Party Congress at which Xi further cemented his power.

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

It's customary for China to send an official to Pyongyang after significant events such as party congresses, which are only held once every five years. The North threatened to "send him to the hell he likes so much to tout", a reference to the president's speech, during which Trump called North Korea a "hell that no one deserves". The term refers to the idea that in exchange for North Korea freezing its missile and nuclear programs, the US and South Korea would suspend their long-standing joint military drills in the region.

President Xi and Kim Jong Un have not met in person, and with no top-level diplomatic visits announced between the two countries in 2017 until this point, Pyongyang and Beijing will need time to "catch up", said Delury.

At the top of the list is North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. "But past American presidents have pushed China on North Korea before, and China's never come around".

It was the first time someone ever broke my heart". "He sent me a flower arrangement", she told Corden. "She's doing great. Pink said: "I would love to get rid of some of the mom guilt 'cause that really shades a lot of my decision-making".

But North Korea wrote the words off as "rubbish", asserting that "Rabid dog's barking can never frighten the Korean people".

President Xi recognizes that a nuclear North Korea is a grave threat to China, and we agreed that we would not accept a so-called "freeze for freeze" agreement like those that have consistently failed in the past. Song has visited Vietnam and Laos, both fellow Communist states, on the same mission following the congress.

On Thursday, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang, said a dual suspension, the Chinese's preferred term for the "freeze-for-freeze" deal, was the "most feasible, fair, and sensible plan in the present situation".

"During his visit, he will exchange views on major issues of common concern", Geng said.

Song's department is in charge of the party's relations with foreign political parties, and it has traditionally served as a conduit for Chinese diplomacy with North Korea.

While Trump's visit to Asia in November pushed a hard line on North Korea, calling repeatedly for collective regional pressure to end the nuclear standoff, experts said there was likely no real connection between the Chinese visit and the United States leader's recent Asia tour.
