Senior Chinese diplomat to visit North Korea this week

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

North Korea's state media has criticized Donald Trump for insulting leader Kim Jong-Un, saying the U.S. president deserved the death penalty and calling him a coward for cancelling a visit to the inter-Korean border, The Guardian has reported.

Friday's trip by President Xi Jinping's envoy, Song Tao, is seen as a diplomatic push by China to resolve the recent nuclear standoff, AFP reports.

Both China and South Korea appear more willing to meet North Korea in the middle, as Pyongyang, using the abbreviation for the country's official name, has sworn it will "never put the issue related to the supreme interests of the DPRK [nuclear weapons] and security of its people on the bargaining table". Actually, when Song's visit to Vietnam and the Laos was announced earlier, multiple journalists had asked China's foreign ministry if Song would go to North Korea as well, but the ministry remained ambiguous about the question.

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.

Trump, who had previously called negotiations with North Korea a waste of time, has offered no clear path to talks. 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.

Days later, Trump struck back, tweeting "Why would Kim Jong-Un insult me by calling me "old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat"?"
