U.S. officials huddled Monday with key Asian powers to discuss tensions with North Korea, which have been stoked by a recent missile test and an airport killing officials believe was ordered by Pyongyang.North Korea will also be on the agenda when Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi meets with high-ranking U.S. officials during a Washington visit on Monday and Tuesday. He is the first senior Chinese official to visit the U.S. since Trump took office. On Friday, the U.S. government nixed what would have been the first unofficial talks on U.S. soil between North Korean government officials and former U.S. officials in five years. Although no current U.S. officials were due to participate in the talks in New York in early March, allowing them to proceed could have signaled the Trump administration's openness to U.S. engagement with North Korea.
