Chinese Envoy to visit North Korea, likely to urge Denuclearization



Chinese envoy, Song Tao, the head of the Communist Party’s external affairs department, will visit Pyongyang on Friday, China’s state-run news agency, Xinhua reported. According to the official announcement, Song Tao would convey North Korea about the results of the 19th Communist Party congress last month that re-elected President Xi Jinping for a second consecutive term.

Chinese Envoy to visit North Korea after Two Years

A Chinese diplomat is visiting North Korea after two years, in a move less than a week after President Trump’s visit. The purpose of this official visit is likely to resume pressure on the North to curb its nuclear program.

According to Chinese specialists on international relations, the phrase ‘visit the north‘ implies an oblique way of saying that Mr. Song would carry a message from Mr. Xi. They said the message would most likely urge the North to join negotiations to curb its nuclear program significantly.

Last week in Beijing, the talks between President Xi and Donald Trump focused heavily on North Korea’s global nuclear threat. Trump after leaving Beijing tweeted that he was impressed with China’s efforts to push for the denuclearization especially that of North Korea.

“I believe Song Tao will take a very clear message on the Trump summit with Xi Jinping,” said Cheng Xiaohe, professor of international relations at the Renmin University of China in Beijing. “He will focus on North Korea needing to talk about denuclearization.”

Kim Jong-un, the current North Korean leader has agreed to Mr. Song’s visit after month’s of rebuffing Chinese attempts to send envoys to Pyongyang, states the North Korea’s KCNA news agency.

According to the Chinese diplomat, Yang Xiyu, there also doesn’t seem any guarantee that Mr. Song would get to meet Mr. Kim in person. Mr. Yang Xiyu led the so-called six-party talks with North Korea more than a decade ago.
