China has vowed to maintain 'close communication' with its longstanding ally in the face of deadlocked nuclear talks with the US.

China reasserted its backing for North Korea on Tuesday as its foreign minister visited Pyongyang, vowing to maintain"close communication" with its longstanding ally in the face of deadlocked nuclear talks with Washington.

Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi arrived in Pyongyang on a three-day trip on Monday, just two months after Xi became the first Chinese leader to visit the North in 14 years. Ri said that North Korea is willing to work with China to"promote greater development" of their relations in the"new era", according to the document.

They agree to restart talks at an impromptu meeting in the Demilitarized Zone in June, but that working-level dialogue has yet to begin. "Beijing and Pyongyang may also strategise how to exploit widening divisions between Seoul and Tokyo and how to play the US election cycle," he added, but stressed that North Korea wanted to avoid over-reliance on China.
