NORTH KOREA - US Secretary of State wraps up summit on Korean Peninsula in Vancouver.

Vancouver, Canada Politics, Current Affairs, Risk Analysis December 20 @ 4:17am

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Canadian counterpart - Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, co-hosted a meeting on Tuesday - JANUARY 16th, 2018 here in Vancouver regarding North Korea.

Most of the countries who fought in the active part of the 1950-1953 Korean War attended. However, the People's Republic of China and Russia, two of the North's biggest allies, were NOT invited.

Taming the North's behaviour was to be the centre of the gathering, which is being tentatively called the "Vancouver Group". It is hoped the result will be a very strong diplomatic effort to avoid military conflict and herald a return to the negotiation table.

Canada (Co-Chair)
