Up US, North Korea to ease tensions, not China: China UN envoy

China's U.N. ambassador said on Monday it is primarily up to the United States and North Korea, not Beijing, to reduce tensions and work toward resuming talks to end Pyongyang's nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programs.

North Korea on Friday conducted its second test this month of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday he was "very disappointed" that China had done "nothing" for Washington with regards to North Korea. China's UN Ambassador Liu Jieyi told a news conference to mark the end of Beijing's presidency of the U.N. Security Council in July that no matter how capable China is, their efforts will not yield practical results because it depends on the two principal parties. He also accused "relevant countries" of violating Security Council resolutions by heightening tensions and failing to resume negotiations.
