Envoys from China, N. Korea Meet on PyeongChang Olympic sidelines

Top envoys from China and North Korea met with each other on the sidelines of the of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in South Korea. 

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Geng Shuang confirmed during a regular press briefing in Beijing on Monday that Chinese Communist Party Politburo Standing Committee member Han Zheng and the North’s ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam held a meeting.

Asked whether there was any contact between the two communist allies during their visit to South Korea, the spokesman said said Han met with the president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the North and “conducted exchanges.” 

The spokesman, however, did not disclose what they talked about. 

Diplomatic observers in Beijing say the meeting may indicate that after a period of strained ties, China and North Korea are ready to improve their relations.
