BEIJING - China's top diplomat Yang Jiechi and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson exchanged views on the situation on the Korean Peninsula via phone on Sunday, China's official Xinhua News Agency said.

Xinhua did not give further details.

A North Korean missile "blew up almost immediately" on its test launch on Sunday morning, the US Pacific Command said, hours before US Vice President Mike Pence landed in South Korea for talks on the North's increasingly defiant arms program.
