Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is set to attend North Korea talks scheduled for later this month in Canada amid rumors he's fallen out of favor with his boss.
He explained: "If the Chinese ever are foolish enough to go into North Korea [in a military capacity], I applaud them because they'd be going into a nasty place and all the problems we [South Korea] now have would be theirs". The official, who asked not to be identified in line with government policy, said Japan had been given no details on who would attend, what would be discussed or how the event would be organized. That's not only because there are other stakeholders, but also because Pyongyang still refuses to relinquish its pursuit of nuclear weapons - grounds for war, according to the United States, which has been placed in the firing line.

Analyst Mark Valencia, a researcher at China's National Institute for South China Sea Studies, warned past year that attempts to authorize high-seas interdictions would essentially legalize an act of war - an opposed boarding of another flag state's vessel - and potentially undermine the principle of freedom of navigation.
"If both China and Russian Federation are absent from the meeting, then the significance and the utility of the gathering will be greatly discounted", Wenran Jiang, an expert on Asian politics from the University of Alberta, said in an email.
He also said China has the same goal as the allies.
He saw Chris Morris as a fourth-seamer replacement. "If you do that against a strong team like India they will pounce on you". For me‚ the key thing is pace and bounce and if there was a little bit of grass it would be fine‚ but we back ourselves.
