'Before it is too late': Diplomats race to defuse tensions ahead of North Korea's deadline

'Before it is too late': Diplomats race to defuse tensions ahead of North Korea's deadlineA last minute flurry of diplomacy aimed at engaging with North Korea ahead of its declared year-end deadline for talks has been met with stony silence from Pyongyang so far, with the looming crisis expected to top the agenda at summits in China next week. The U.S. special envoy for North Korea, Stephen Biegun, was due to leave Beijing on Friday after meeting with Chinese officials.
