    US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday that Beijing had been "helpful" in engaging North Korea, according to Reuters report.

    His remarks come in the wake of reports of alleged North Korean missile tests that took place earlier this week.

    US President Donald Trump has engaged in denuclearisation talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Although the negotiations failed to achieve substantial results, it was the first time that the heads of the US and North Korea had engaged in direct talks since the creation of the Democratic Republic of North Korea.
