    Chinese Vice Premier Li Keqiang visited North Korean leader Kim Jong-il yesterday. In the North Korean capital of Pyongyang, the two discussed a possible return to the six party nuclear talks North Korea walked out on in 2005.

    But South Korea and the United States have stated that talks won't resume until the North makes a promise to halt its uranium enrichment program. North Korea claims the program, unveiled last year, is for power. But skeptics say it could also be an alternative route to producing a nuclear bomb.

    The Chinese Communist regime has attempted to walk a fine line in its dealings with North Korea. North Korea is China's ally, but the regime has also been looking to strengthen its ties with the South. A trip there is planned for after Vice Premier Li finishes his North Korean tour.
