China's foreign minister to visit North Korea this week

Trump I've been 100% right on Iran deal

The Seoul Metropolitan Government is considering launching various exchange programs with North Korea's capital city Pyongyang in the wake of the historic inter-Korean summit.

China has backed a series of United Nations sanctions against Pyongyang over its nuclear weapons programme.

The visit comes after hopes grew last week for a breakthrough to bring peace to the divided Korean peninsula, following a historic summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in at which the pair vowed "complete denuclearization". The North Korean leader "talked about his country's weaknesses, such as the infrastructure". But now warming ties between North Korea and the USA could dramatically alter the power structure in the region, leaving Beijing on the outside.

The meeting between the two neighbours occurred just days ahead of Kim's scheduled interaction with US President Donald Trump.

Yi's visit was in response to an invitation from North Korea last week, China's foreign ministry said in a statement. The military said the upcoming military talks would address a "wide range of issues" including the measures to demilitarize the DMZ and conduct other joint projects with North Korea in the cross-border region. Some 28.3% said they still do not trust Pyongyang.

South Korea will remove loudspeakers that blared propaganda across the border with North Korea this week, officials said Monday, as the rivals move to follow through with their leaders' summit declaration. China is the North's main ally.

The KCNA dispatch said the decision came after Kim found it "a painful wrench" to see two clocks showing different times on a wall at the summit venue.

"We see this as the easiest first step to build military trust", South Korean defense ministry spokesperson Choi Hyun-soo said.

The northern time zone was created in 2015 to mark the 70th anniversary of Korea's liberation from Japanese rule after World War Two.

North Korea will shift its time zone 30 minutes earlier to align with South Korea, starting May 5, state media reported on Monday.

In the latest major diplomatic announcements, Seoul said Sunday that Pyongyang had promised to shut its nuclear test site within weeks and invite U.S. weapons experts to verify its closure.
