North Korea provocations hurt China-South Korea ties

Recent pressure from China, which has been encouraging North Korea to abandon its nuclear and missile tests, seemingly has achieved nothing. Direct military action is almost unthinkable- millions would be harmed, and China would likely be even more upset about a devastated North Korean peninsula at its borders than a unified capitalist regime there.
North Korea is doing everything opposite of attempting to seek a peaceful existence with its neighbors.
In June, Trumpexpressed disappointment with Chinese efforts to contain North Korea, having previously promised the Chinese would do more to de-escalate tensions.
Still, Chinese purchases of North Korean iron ore are contributing to tensions between the USA and China following President Donald Trump's statement last week expressing annoyance about China-North Korea economic ties.
A few years back, the Washington Post noted that of the nine members of the standing committee of China's Politburo, at least five had children or grandchildren studying in the US. Since there is little prospect of achieving this goal by continued posturing and issuance of sanctions, there are only two ways that President Trump can make the world safe from North Korea.
Yet after the collapse of the USSR, North Korea was left destitute and thousands died in a crippling starvation. In a unanimous vote, the Senate passed the North KoreaSanctions and Policy Enhancement Act.

North Korean iron ore isn't covered by the same sort of restrictions.
If anyone has a better idea, I'd love to hear it unless it involves more endless negotiations, piecemeal sanctions or toothless United Nations resolutions.
At the same time, iron ore imports have surged between January and May to $74.4 million compared to $24 million over the same period past year. For instance, in 2016 after September 9 nuclear test by the North Koreans, he tweeted: "Russia has more war heads than ever, N. Korea is testing nukes, and Iran got a sweetheart deal to keep theirs". But how? Washington announced a $1 billion plus arms deal with Taiwan and sent a USA warship on a freedom of navigation/right of innocent passage voyage, passing within 12 miles of a Chinese island base in the South China Sea, eliciting strong protests from Beijing, but that's not almost enough to persuade the Chinese to take action to prevent what they themselves say is the risk of events spiraling out of control with catastrophic results that neither of us want. Although there would be no question of North Korea prevailing in the ensuing conflict, and in my opinion very little possibility of Chinese intervention, casualties could be high.
The US is in the process of completing a THAAD battery deployment in South Korea, supposedly aimed against North Korea.

"What China enforces is United Nations resolutions, not the domestic law of certain countries". However, it was not held at the time, he said.
In the 1980s and 1990s, North Korea was a major supplier of iron ore to Chinese steelmakers, according to Philip Kirchlechner, director of Iron Ore Research Pty in Perth. "In terms of economic significance today, it's been reduced to nothing".
