WASHINGTON - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo conveyed US resolve for "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula with Chinese President Xi Jinping, the State Department said on Thursday, as well as concerns about Chinese activities in the South China Sea.

Pompeo told Xi and other Chinese leaders during a meeting in Beijing that Washington "wants a lasting and stable peace regime" in the region, the department said.

"Secretary Pompeo reaffirmed our deep concerns about the building and militarizing of outposts in the South China Sea, as those actions increase tensions, complicate and escalate disputes, endanger the free flow of trade, and undermine regional stability," the statement said.
