Busy North Korean restaurant in China turning away South Koreans

The gathering comes as tensions have sharply escalated over North Korea's provocations, which a year ago included its sixth nuclear test and three tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Canada and its Korean War allies will sit down in Vancouver next week to mull ways to tighten the screws on North Korea - including whether to intercept North Korean shipping.

Instead, only those countries that deployed troops as part of the United Nations during the Korean War between 1950 and 1953 have been invited to participate in the discussions, which China has blasted as "Cold War thinking". "We hope they will attend", he said of China Dec. 20, the day Freeland announced details alongside U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Ottawa. But there was a desire on the Canadian side to invite the Chinese to Vancouver for side meetings.

The meeting comes after a flurry of diplomacy between North and South Korean and fresh openness from President to the prospect of talks with Pyongyang, although USA officials emphasized Thursday that 's provocations can not be tolerated by the worldwide community.

"Any meeting organized in the name of the so called "UN Command" reflects Cold War thinking, which will only create divisions in the worldwide community and undermine the joint efforts that are being made to resolve properly the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue", the statement says.

OTTAWA-It's a bit of Olympic détente, a case of sports diplomacy that has eased nuclear tensions on the Korean peninsula.

On January 9, the first round of dialogue aimed at improving relations between South and North Korea took place in the Panmunjom settlement located in the demilitarized zone separating the two countries.

The rebel-run news agency Saba gave the same toll and accused the coalition of using cluster bombs in that attack in Kataf city. The war has killed more than 10,000 Yemenis, mostly civilians, and pushed the country to the brink of mass starvation .

"Like the global community, we hope that the United States and North Korea will take the opposite direction and take meaningful steps towards dialogue and engagement", he added.

China's trade with North Korea shrank by more than half last month, as Beijing implements United Nations sanctions against Kim Jong Un's nuclear weapons program.

The State Department's director of policy planning Brian Hook says Washington will look for practical mechanisms to pressure Pyongyang.

"We believe that only in this format, at the negotiating table, in a calm and normal atmosphere this very complex problem can and should be solved", Zakharova said, ruling out any possibility of a military option.

Meanwhile, Japan is questioning why countries like Colombia and Greece will be there - and it won't.

Commenting on Tuesday's high-level talks between two countries, the spokesperson reiterated Moscow's position towards the conflict on the Korean peninsula by saying that Russian Federation is ready to assist in enhancing dialogue between South and North Korea.
