China and Russia pushed on Tuesday for talks to defuse the "confrontational spiral" between the US and North Korea after Kim Jong-Un stepped back from a planned missile strike near Guam.

The North Korean leader said he would wait and see how the United States behaved before deciding whether to execute the planned launch of four missiles over Japan towards the tiny US territory in the Pacific.

Some analysts suggested Kim was opening a possible path to de-escalating tensions adidas nmd runner dames , which spiked dramatically with recent bellicose exchanges between US President Donald Trump and Pyongyang.

The North's official KCNA news agency said Kim was briefed on the "plan for an enveloping fire at Guam" during an inspection on Monday of the Strategic Force command in charge of the nuclear-armed state's missile units.

But it said Kim would "watch a little more the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees" before executing any order.

"In order to defuse the tensions and prevent the dangerous military conflict on the Korean peninsula, it is necessary for the US to make a proper option first," he added.

His remarks prompted joy in Guam, where officials described themselves as "almost ecstatic that Kim Jong-Un has backed off".

China said Tuesday that the North Korean nuclear crisis had reached a "turning point" and it was time to enter peace talks.

"We now hope that all the concerned parties, in what they say and what they do adidas nmd xr1 kopen , can contribute to extinguishing the fire, rather than adding fuel to the fire," Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi spoke to his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday in a telephone conversation focused on "ways to get out of the confrontational spiral on the Korean peninsula", according to the Russian foreign ministry.

A ministry statement said both countries had "stressed the lack of any alternative to a political and diplomatic resolution" and called for "all the sides involved - with the support of the global community - to move towards setting up dialogue".


US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Washington was "interested in finding ways to get to dialogue" but stressed the ball was in Kim's court.

The US has long maintained that the North must show some tangible commitment to denuclearisation before official talks can begin - a pre-condition rejected by Pyongyang.

Kim's remarks about future US conduct were seen as a clear reference to large-scale military exercises held every year by South Korea and the United States that are expected to kick off later this month.

The North has always denounced the drills as provocative rehearsals for invasion and has in the past offered a moratorium on further nuclear and missile testing in exchange for their cancellation.

Some analysts said Kim was seeking a similar quid-pro-quo this time around, using the Guam missile threat as leverage.

"This is a direct invitation to talk reciprocal constraints on exercises and missile launches adidas springblade kopen ," said Adam Mount, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress.

John Delury of Yonsei University in Seoul said Kim was "de-escalating, putting Guam plan on ice" - at least for now.

The United States and South Korea insist their annual joint exercises are purely defensive, and cannot be linked to the North's missile programme, which violates a host of UN resolutions.


Tensions have been mounting since the North tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles last month adidas superstar zwart goud dames , which appeared to bring much of the US within range.

Responding to the tests, President Trump warned Pyongyang of "fire and fury like the world has never seen", while the North responded with the Guam threat.

South Korean President Moon Jae-In weighed in on Tuesday, saying Seoul would avoid a second Korean War at all costs and stressing that "no one may decide to take military action without the consent of the Republic of Korea".

German automaker Volkswagen, which tops the sedan sales list in China so far this year adidas superstar wit goud bestellen , showcased over 30 models at the Guangzhou auto show, including a brand-new midsize coupe, the Lamando.

The Lamando sports sedan, which debuted at the Chengdu auto show in August, is set to hit the market in January 2015 adidas superstar 80s kopen , the company said. Pre-orders of the model started at the auto show, but price of the model is not announced yet.

The model, available only in China so far, uses Volkswagen's modular MQB platform that is also shared by the Golf 7 and Skoda's Octavia. The Lamando is the first MQB platform model produced by Shanghai Volkswagen, one of the German automaker's joint ventures in China.

Shanghai Volkswagen has attached high hopes that this new car will boost the brand's sales. Though the Lamando is still not officially available on the market yet adidas superstar w zwart dames , the company has already launched intensive promotion campaigns for it - it is the main sponsor of the Chinese version of South Korean reality show Running Man, which was launched on air on October 10 and has become a hit in China.

"The new Lamando should be a competitive new product, as the Volkswagen brand is well-received among Chinese consumers," said Wu Shuocheng, a senior analyst at industry consultancy Menutor Consulting Shanghai Co.

The FAW-Volkswagen adidas superstar supercolor kopen , another joint venture of the automaker in China, also brought something new to the Guangzhou show - an updated version of one of the company's bestsellers, the Sagitar sedan model.

Compared with older versions, the new version has a more fashionable exterior with newly designed LED head and rear lights.

The Sagitar has actually been hit by negative publicity in China recently. On October 15, FAW-Volkswagen announced it would recall 563 adidas superstar 2 bestellen ,605 Sagitar cars produced between May 2011 and Ma.
