Trump may have credited his own aggressive stance toward the crisis on the Korean Peninsula with getting South Korea and North Korea to restart talks, but the official organ of China's ruling Communist Party said Thursday that the US leader has only made things worse.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang welcomed North and South Korea "taking positive steps to improve ties", and said the postponement of the exercises was "without doubt a good thing". If South Korea can enhance ties with North Korea, why can't the US and other countries?

The abrupt decision by South Korea and the U.S. to delay their joint military exercises - to which North Korea has long objected - until after the Pyeongchang Olympics is also improving the prospects for talks.
