"Canada recognizes the essential role that China has to play in any diplomatic efforts in support of security and stability on the Korean Peninsula", department spokeswoman Amy Mills said in an emailed statement Wednesday evening.

Mr. Tillerson is slated to co-host with Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.

Canadian financial institutions have been ordered to treat what few transactions they conduct with North Korea with even greater diligence as the federal government tries to increase pressure on the nuclear-armed nation.

According to the ministry, the two diplomats discussed the situation on the Korean Peninsula.

China, which was not invited to next week's Vancouver meeting, has started to crack down on illicit North Korean financing and smuggling, said Brian Hook, director of policy for U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

The previous Conservative government in 2010 adopted a policy of "controlled engagement", severely restricting its dealings with North Korea to just a few areas. Russian Federation and China, the two nations with arguably the greatest sway over the regime, will not be there, making it unlikely the Vancouver meeting gathering will produce a significant breakthrough, Paris said.

Instead, only those countries that deployed troops as part of the United Nations during the Korean War between 1950 and 1953 have been invited to participate in the discussions, which China has blasted as "Cold War thinking". The key players aren't there, ' he said.

"We will be discussing with our partners and allies the kind of steps that we can take on maritime interdiction and also to be cutting, disrupting funding and disrupting resources", he said.

"This is a very high-level meeting and it's very important and it has potential to be successful", said Lopez, professor emeritus of peace studies at the University of Notre Dame, who served on the United Nations panel of experts responsible for monitoring the implementation of sanctions.

"The sports diplomacy may create the environment for how you talk about getting to good talks", Lopez said.

This peaceful initiative, proposed by Moscow and Beijing, urged Pyongyang, from the one hand, to declare a moratorium on nuclear tests and missile launches and South Korea and the U.S., on the other hand, to abstain from carrying out joint drills, in order to stabilize the situation on the Korean Peninsula.

He explained: "If the Chinese ever are foolish enough to go into North Korea [in a military capacity], I applaud them because they'd be going into a nasty place and all the problems we [South Korea] now have would be theirs".
