At a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit, U.S. President Donald Trump said it may take time to rein in North Korea's nuclear program, but was confident Washington and Beijing could eventually reach a successful conclusion.
Pyongyang said it was not involved in arms dealings with Russia, and had no plans to do so. The US previously indicated North Korea was supplying Russia with artillery shells for its war in Ukraine.
China's leader holds more power than ever before. Beijing denies having an accelerated timeline on Taiwan "reunification," but defense analysts say military preparation has been ongoing for years.
Joe Biden intends to explore China's "red lines" and determine any conflict of interest in the meeting, an official has said. The meeting will be the first since Biden became president.
Allies in the Standing Committee back their leader's strict lockdown policy despite damage to the economy. Industrial Guangzhou's 19 million residents have been told to stay home.

US President Joe Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping sought to "manage" differences in their first face-to-face encounter since Biden took office.
