6:07 pm
one percent in favor of independents out four to nine percent against independents and yet but. when we are. living peacefully. in peace between both sides of society thank you ana yaddo from barcelona for your insight my pleasure u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson has said the united states is in direct contact with north korea over its nuclear weapons program and is probing the country's willingness to talk tillerson made the remarks in beijing where he was meeting with president and other officials he's also calling for calm the u.s. use china as crucial to attempts to stop young and developing nuclear weapons china has strong economic ties with north korea accounting for about ninety percent of
6:08 pm
its foreign trade. earlier i spoke to steven burrill wake our correspondent in seoul south korea i began by asking him how important china's role is in developing channels for communication between the united states and north korea. if u.s. and north korea are in some kind of direct contact and presumably that's a diplomatic process that's going ahead without china's direct involvement and whether or not that you site sit down to talk will depend on a variety of factors particularly the preconditions that they place on any kind of talks north korea has historically resisted talks that were predicated upon its taking steps towards the nuclear as they should that being said china is of course very important to any sort of approach north korea given the amount of economic power that they have on north korea and i think some u.s. policy makers and analysts have in the past assumed that china has this sort of
6:09 pm
magic ability to affect north korea's behavior but history shows that that isn't always the case now as you mentioned china is obviously an important actor in this situation and they've also adopted u.n. sanctions against north korea and seem increasingly willing to cut those ties with over its nuclear weapons program but how much further can washington push beijing to exert power on north korea to answer that it's important to distinguish between economic and political power china has a lot of economic power but christie said given that north korea's only active land borders with china and so much of its trade depends on interaction with china but that being said. north korea is still a sovereign country and when it comes to what policies they want to carry out and if they choose to pursue nuclear weapons or missiles there's not much the china can do to change that so over to listen is it will be able to assess the extent to which the two sides are able to cooperate and just how much the u.s.
6:10 pm
is able to get china on board with carrying out u.n. sanctions and other kind of punitive measures on north korea now looking ahead president trump will visit beijing in november of course currently there appears to be warmer ties between u.s. and china but could anything be derived now from between now and that briefly if you can. the calendar is full of big events between now and then china will have its communist party congress and north korea will be celebrating the foundation of its ruling party and south korean officials just said this week that they expect more provocative actions between from north korea around mid october so the question will be if tensions do arise if u.s. and china will seize on that urgency to cooperate more cohesively and to make a more united front or if the more tense situation leads them to break apart in some way and they have some differences on the best way to move forward so we'll have to states you know over the next couple weeks and see how things develop with
6:11 pm
