BEIJING -- After meeting with top Chinese leaders Saturday, Secretary of State John Kerry said  Beijing had pledged to work with the United States to urge North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons. "There is no question in my mind that China is serious, very serious, about denuclearization," said Kerry, appearing exultant but weary at a Saturday night news conference at a hotel near the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing.
