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".

Trudeau said Canada "looks forward" to engaging with global partners at the summit.

He said that China has always supported worldwide anti-terrorism cooperation on the basis of mutual respect.

He also said China and Russian Federation, which have not been invited, will be briefed on the discussions after the meeting.

"He's clearly trying to pursue the diplomatic and economic option to the maximum in the hopes of creating the conditions for a negotiated outcome", said Paris, an associate professor at the University of Ottawa and former foreign policy adviser to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

He also said the meeting does not involve all the key countries related to the North Korean nuclear issue.

Vice President Mike Pence will lead the official U.S. delegation. "From the very beginning, China considers the meeting meaningless and firmly opposes it".

OTTAWA-It's a bit of Olympic d├ętente, a case of sports diplomacy that has eased nuclear tensions on the Korean peninsula.

"I have not heard what you said", Chinese Foreign Ministry's spokesperson Lu Kang told a reporter while replying to a question in this regard during his regular press briefing. "The main channels for handling and resolving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue should still be the framework of six party talks and the UN Security Council".

State Department director of policy planning Brian Hook said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be looking for help developing "practical mechanisms" to pressure Pyongyang. This ministerial will enhance and strengthen all of the efforts under way.

"The meeting will bring together nations from across the globe to demonstrate global solidarity against North Korea's unsafe and illegal nuclear and ballistic missile programs", the statement said.

Meanwhile, Japan is questioning why countries like Colombia and Greece will be there - and it won't.

The statement came after North and South Korean officials held their first direct talks in two years on Tuesday - after which announced that it would send a delegation to the Winter Olympics in South Korea next month.
