Trump Wants China to Pay for Failing to Stop North Korea

Ri Sol-Ju was photographed by the North Korean leader's side during a banquet in Pyongyang paying tribute to the developers of the recently launched missile.

He said the North Korean missile threat is not only a concern for South Korea but for the entire world as well.

Tensions rose after North Korea's test this month of an intercontinental ballistic missile that could reach the United States mainland. This represents a real threat to Americans that can no longer be endured or entrusted exclusively to the leisurely pace of diplomatic negotiations. Further, China has slowly reduced Hong Kong's level of autonomy, most likely with the goal of eventually being able to treat the city as it does any other major Chinese city - that is, without the special set of rules and allowances that Hong Kong has enjoyed since Great Britain returned the city to China. It had a balance between the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union, the United States and South Korea.

The launch, which was widely condemned around the world, has meanwhile had a negative impact on North Korean traders working in China, who had hoped for better business opportunities owing to recent changes in the government of rival South Korea.

Despite rounds of worldwide sanctions on Pyongyang, North Korea's trade deficit with China has risen to its highest level. The Pentagon, as it's always wont to do, intended for the drills to be a show of force in deterring what they believe to be Pyongyang's aggression, though North Korea understandably interpreted this as an unprecedented escalation of the crisis meant to intimidate it into concessions.

Its next objective is developing a nuclear device small enough to be delivered by its missiles.

President Donald Trump has already said that the time for negotiations is over and yet it never seems to be over. China failed to help but got thanked, nevertheless, for trying.

Haley also hinted on the possibility of economic pressure on China, saying, "We (the United States) will strongly pressure China to participate in sanctions".

The second course of action involves direct military action.

The officials also agreed that North Korea posed a grave threat to the global peace and stability and reaffirmed the importance of coordination aimed at the "complete and irreversible" denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. -South Korea military exercises that are conducted every March, which are a sore point with Pyongyang.

Meanwhile, India has already notified the compliance of the United Nations resolution imposing sanctions on North Korea which include prevention of direct or indirect supply, sale, transfer or export of all weaponry and related material through its territories or by its nationals to that country.

"It's worrisome, because especially with the proliferation and the acceleration of the missile technology, I don't think the Trump Administration's doing ample resources to tackle the issue", said Lee.
