Chinese leaders say dialogue is the only way to resolve the Korean crisis.

The threat of more nuclear tests and missile launches is alarming many.

A diplomatic solution to the Korean crisis does seems possible and the Trump administration has signalled it is willing to try all non-military options.

Chinese leaders say they are glad that the US is open to resolving the tension through talks.
