Talks between U.S. and Chinese officials over North Korea’s weapons program got a boost from a meeting between senior officials in Rome on Monday. 

U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and Communist Party Politburo member Yang Jiechi agreed their staffs should be in touch in the near future over concerns about Pyongyang’s recent acceleration in missile tests, according to a U.S. official who briefed reporters on the six-hour conversation, which focused largely on Russia’s war in Ukraine.
