Xi: Italy and China cooperate at all levels

BEIJING (Reuters) - Beijing is ready to cooperate with Rome at all levels, Chinese President Xi Jinping was quoted as saying Wednesday in Corriere della Sera ahead of the leader's visit to Italy. "I would like to put with the Italian leaders the guidelines for bilateral relations and take them into a new era," Shi said in an article he wrote to the Italian newspaper.

The president is expected to arrive in Rome sometime this week as part of his March 21-26 tour, where Italy is due to become the first member of the Group of Seven to participate in the $ 1 trillion belt and road project.

Rome's desire to join China's massive infrastructure project comes with reservations from European partners and the United States. While voices from the White House warned Italy to join the project, France urged a "coordinated approach" to what has become known as the New Silk Road.

US intelligence in Seoul for discussions on North Korea

US National Intelligence Director Dan Coates is due to arrive in South Korea to discuss the situation in North Korea with local officials following a summit last month between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Details of Koats' three-day visit to Seoul are clear, but he is expected to meet with South Korean colleague Soh Hoon and other officials, exchange intelligence and assess Pyongyang's nuclear threat.

Koats's visit comes after reports of activities at the North Korean missile launch site Dongchang-ri. Earlier, Coates told Congress that he did not think North Korea would give up all its nuclear weapons.
