US, China talk North Korea's 'escalatory' actions

American and Chinese officials held a video conference on Thursday to discuss the latest "destabilizing and escalatory behavior" by North Korea, the State Department said in a statement.

Special Representative for North Korea Sung Kim(pictured) told China's Special Representative on Korean Peninsula Affairs Liu Xiaoming that Washington is concerned about "the unprecedented number of ballistic missile launches" Pyongyang conducted this year, stressing the actions violated "multiple UN Security Council resolutions." Kim reiterated that the US is ready to work on resolving the Korean Peninsula crisis through dialogue and is prepared to meet North Korean officials "at any time."

The US official is set to meet his South Korean and Japanese counterparts in Indonesia next week to discuss Pyongyang's missile launches.
