Reports of US-China intelligence hotline over Korean crisis ‘fake news’ – state media

China’s Global Times newspaper, which has government ties, has denied reports in the Japanese press which claim that Beijing and Washington have agreed to share intelligence related to North Korea.

The original report was published Monday by the influential Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun. The report said several US government sources told it that US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping had agreed to intensify intelligence sharing during Trump’s November visit to Beijing.

The two sides reportedly agreed to compare notes on North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs and the effect that the international economic sanctions are taking on it. The sharing would “extend to such issues as how to secure North Korea's nuclear weapons and dealing with refugees from North Korea should a military encounter occur,” according to the newspaper.
