  • The Latest US wants ‘much greater’ China pressure on NKorea

North Korea's treatment of an American student who died after being released from detention in a coma was inhuman and USA patience with Pyongyang is running out, Pentagon chief Jim Mattis said Wednesday.

The death of Warmbier has considerably strained tensions between Washington and Pyongyang, who have always been at loggerheads over North Korea's nuclear missile program and the installation of a controversial American missile defense system in South Korea.

North Korea conducts about 90 percent of its trade through China.

The Rodong Sinmum commentary suggests that the USA government is suffering from its own crisis, which could include "the impeachment of Trump", and that the president is now considering launching a preemptive strike against North Korea because of his "tough situation" at home.

"While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out", Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter this week, ahead of a high-level meeting of Chinese and American officials on Wednesday in Washington, signaling a harder line. "I'm not saying we should not try to persuade China to do more, but we need to have realistic expectations".

Tillerson and U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis did not mention discussions of Tibet or THAAD during a press briefing following the meeting.

China restated its position that the Korean Peninsula should be denuclearised, but added that the issue can be resolved only through peaceful dialogues, China News Service reported.

The State Department says the dialogue will focus on ways to increase pressure on North Korea, but also cover such areas as counter-terrorism and territorial rivalries in the South China Sea. -South Korea joint military exercises in exchange for a North Korean freeze on its nuclear and missile tests.

USA and Chinese diplomats and defense chiefs are meeting later Wednesday in Washington for security talks.

"China has made the utmost efforts to help break the stalemate in the North Korean nuclear issue. Until Washington acts against Chinese companies and banks, Beijing will not put the level of pressure necessary to have an impact", Anthony Ruggiero, Senior Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told NK News.

If Washington imposes sanctions on Chinese enterprises, it would lead to "grave friction" between the two countries, said the paper, which does not represent Chinese government policy.

The Chinese government asked the United States to remove the U.S.

Trump's "let's make a deal" approach to China provided Beijing with opportunities for significant wins in its relations with the United States. But she said the US wants more action against blacklisted North Korean companies doing business through China.

Spicer said Trump would be willing to meet Kim under the right conditions, but "clearly we're moving further away, not closer to those conditions".
