BEIJING - China's Foreign Ministry on Saturday expressed "serious concern" about US comments on North Korea, after President Donald Trump cancelled his top diplomat's trip to Pyongyang and partly blamed China for a lack of progress in denuclearization talks.

The ministry said in a statement that it made "stern representations" to US officials, and that it would continue to play a positive role in working towards denuclearization on the Korean peninsula.
