If South Korea can expect any progress on denuclearizing North Korea, it'll need China's help.
With that in mind, visiting Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin held talks with Seoul's Deputy Foreign Minister Lee Kyung-soo on the North's nuclear program agreeing to strengthen cooperation to rid the communist state of its nuclear weapons.
Liu arrived in Seoul on Thursday after a four-day visit to North Korea, making him the first high-ranking Chinese official ever to make back-to-back trips to Pyongyang and Seoul.
On Saturday, the last day of his visit, Liu is scheduled to meet with Seoul's Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se and Unification Minister Ryoo Kihl-Jae.
