US vows to press China to enforce NKorea sanctions

US vows to press China to enforce NKorea sanctions

In the meanwhile, let us hope Trump's short memory span and plethora of other distractions will prevent any precipitate action on America's part that could trigger a firestorm on the Korean Peninsula.

South Korea has offered to talk with North Korea to ease animosities along their tense border and resume reunions of families separated by their war in the 1950s.

For more than fifty years, the United States has had a contentious and adverse relationship with North Korea.

October 2006: North Korea conducts its first underground nuclear test blast, citing "extreme threat of a nuclear war" from the United States. The White House declined to comment. Ri was also dismissed as a member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau, a member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the party and a vice chairman of the party's Central Military Commission. If North Korea responded to polite diplomacy it would not be North Korea.

There seems to be zero chance of a North Korean coup or a Chinese intervention to remove Kim.

Kim Jong Un sees the DPRK as a ten-year-old boy being unfairly attacked by a world-champion UFC mixed marital arts fighter. South Korea and the US dispute the claim. Certainly, nuclear weapons would be a powerful deterrent from North Korea's perspective.

We've all heard the new mantra in Washington about North Korea's nuclear ambitions, dutifully intoned by every cable news panel of former admirals and ambassadors: "There are no good options".

And it's only getting bigger. The North tests this missile again in May. But this time around they should not be lifted despite the prospect of ensuing chaos in North Korea. But opinion is more divided in the developing countries in the region.

China's overall imports from North Korea fell 13% compared to the first half of 2016, said Huang Songping, a spokesman for China's customs department.

The U.S. has been trying to get China and Russia to back a new UN Security Council resolution imposing stiffer sanctions on North Korea following its latest missile test.

Officials of the Korean Red Cross receive phone calls at their headquarters in Jung District, Seoul, on Monday after the South Korean agency proposed inter-Korean talks on materializing separated family reunion sessions.

At the first trilateral summit on North Korea at the sidelines of the recent G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, the three nations agreed to impose sanctions on Pyongyang to curb its weapons program. The United States and the Soviet Union understood that a resort even to limited nuclear arms woulde invite an unlimited retaliation.

"We've asked [Xi] for some assistance with respect to North Korea, probably he could do a little more", Trump told reporters this week.
