Patience with Kim fading: envoy

Friday, October 18, 2013

Beijing is losing patience with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and should use its influence to convince Kim to rejoin nuclear disarmament talks, says former US ambassador Christopher Hill.

China chairs the six-party talks on the denuclearization of North Korea that Pyongyang formally abandoned in 2009 after earlier agreeing to shutter its main nuclear reactor, which produced the plutonium for its atomic devices.

China is finally losing their patience with the North Koreans, said Hill, who served as ambassador to South Korea in 2004-05.

"But as for the North Koreans, they don't seem to be committed much to the idea of moving ahead. China needs to get them to the table," Hill said in an interview in Seoul.
