US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday that Beijing was “helpful” in engaging North Korea, according to Reuters report.

His remarks come in the wake of report of alleged North Korean missile test, which took place earlier this week.

US President Donald Trump engaged in denuclearization talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Although the negotiations failed to achieve substaintial results, it was the first time US and North Korean leaders engaged in direct talks since creation of Democratic Republic of North Korea.
