North Korea's Kim noticing change afoot with China - U.S. admiral

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The top U.S. commander in the Asia-Pacific, Admiral Harry Harris, said on Wednesday he was encouraged by signals from China that it would help address North Korea's threatening behaviour, but cautioned: "It's early days."

"I'm encouraged. And I believe Kim Jong Un has noticed that there's a change afoot with regard to China, and I think that’s important," Harris said in testimony to the House Armed Services Committee.
