Japan says this is a time to raise pressure on North Korea

"We have authorities vested in the Constitution of the United States to take actions if there's an imminent threat".

Total Chinese imports from North Korea declined 13.2 percent in the first half of the year compared with a year earlier to $1.7 billion, while exports to the North rose 29.1 percent to $880 million, the Chinese Customs agency reported Thursday.

The decline follows China's decision in February to ban all imports of North Korean coal.

Furthermore, as coal exports have reportedly fallen, shipments of iron ore have spiked.

Washington has also been pushing to impose fresh sanctions on Pyongyang by drawing up a U.N. Security Council resolution and targeting foreign firms doing business with the North. The alleged network included one of the largest Chinese importers of North Korean goods, Dandong Zhicheng Metallic Material Co.

However, US officials are reportedly unsure whether the UAE government itself carried out the attacks or contracted a third party. His visit had yielded little except for a bilateral agreement between the U.S. and Qatar to fight "terrorism".


In the wake of the latest test, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is calling for further sanctions against North Korea.

A Chinese government official said Thursday that China-North Korea trade was worth $2.6 billion in the first half of 2017, up about 10% over the same period a year ago.

Huang said month-on-month figures showed an even sharper decline.

As the United States has searched for ways to punish North Korea for its repeated defiance of worldwide bans on it testing nuclear weapons and launching ballistic missiles, it has repeatedly turned to China. Speaking last Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation", she said the United States did not expect the resolution to be "watered down" and expected to know within days whether China and Russian Federation would support it. In his speech in Berlin, Moon said he was ready to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "under the right conditions", and proposed resuming meetings of family members who were separated by the Korean War. This anti-missile system has become an inseparable part of the Korean Crisis since it's directly linked to the North's missile tests, though it's thought by some to be more directed towards neutralizing Russian Federation and China's nuclear second-strike capabilities than North Korea's first-strike ones. It does not want a flood of millions of hungry refugees coming over its northeast border if the regime collapses, and it certainly does not want the 28,000 American troops now stationed in South Korea to be able to move all the way up the peninsula to the border with China.
