Moon said he believes dialogue with North Korea can happen when North Korea stops missile and nuclear tests.

The military-to-military contacts between the United States and China are important because there will always be some friction between the two countries...lessening miscalculation is the minimum standard for military-to-military contacts...

At a separate meeting, Chinese President Xi Jinping told Dunford that promoting constructive relations between the two militaries is very important to help deepen ties between the two sides.

The chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford, told reporters that President Donald Trump directly has "told us to develop credible viable military options and that's exactly what we're doing".

The top United States general on Tuesday said both the United States and China are committed to working through tough issues, which comes amid heightened tensions over North Korea's nuclear missile program, Reuters reported Tuesday.

Gen Dunford was responding to questions about Mr Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon saying in a new interview that the threat posed by North Korea can not be handled by force.

Li Jie, a Chinese military analyst, told the South China Morning Post that China was not willing to go beyond economic sanctions. "Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that 10 million people in Seoul don't die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don't know what you're talking about, there's no military solution here, they got us".

During his visit, Dunford also met with Fang Fenghui, chief of the CMC Joint Staff Department; Fan Changlong, CMC vice chairman, and Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi.

According to a U.S. Defense Department press release, Dunford and Fang signed a joint strategic dialogue mechanism at the Ba Yi, the PLA headquarters. I think our collective challenge is to sincerely and with candor attack these issues that we have to address...
