WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is sending its No. 2 diplomat and three top Asia experts to China next week for talks on North Korea as Washington presses a reluctant Beijing to do more to rein in Pyongyang.

Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg will lead the delegation to Beijing for the talks, the State Department said Tuesday. "They will meet senior officials to continue consultations with the Chinese on regional security issues, including recent developments on the Korean peninsula," said a statement.
