appealing yanks foreign trade. now earlier i spoke to steven burrill our correspondent in seoul south korea i began by asking him just how important china's role is in developing channels of communication between the united states and north korea if u.s. and north korea were in some kind of direct contact and presumably that's a diplomatic process that's going ahead without china's direct involvement and whether or not that you cite sit down to talk will depend on a variety of factors particularly the preconditions that they place on any kind of talks north korea has historically resisted talks that were predicated upon its taking steps towards the nuclear as they should that being said china is of course very important to any sort of approach north korea given the amount of economic power that they have on north korea and i think some u.s. policy makers and analysts have in the past assumed that china has this sort of

8:11 pm
sides are able to cooperate and just how much the u.s. is able to get china on board with carrying out u.n. sanctions and other kind of punitive measures on north korea now looking ahead president trump will visit beijing in november of course currently there appears to be warmer ties between u.s. and china but could anything be derailed now for between now and that briefly if you can. the calendar is full of big events between now and then china will have its communist party congress and north korea will be celebrating the foundation of its ruling party and south korean officials just said this week that they expect more provocative action from north korea around mid october so the question will be if tensions do arise if the u.s. and china will seize on that urgency to cooperate more cohesively and to make a more united front or if the more tense situation leads them to break apart in some way and they have some differences on the best way to move forward so we'll
