North Korea showdown as Kim and MORTAL ENEMY set for explosive meeting

  • China’s trade with North Korea rises 10

Despite recent European Union overtures urging dialogue on the North Korean crisis, the ministers called on Pyongyang to move toward reducing its nuclear program as a precondition for broader worldwide talks, even as South Korea's new left-leaning president pushed military-to-military contacts with the north to ease tensions.

The timing and scope of the sanctions would depend on how China responds to calls for tougher steps against North Korea.

While Tuesday's test can be seen as a response to North Korea's recent ICBM launch, THAAD systems are designed for short to intermediate range ballistic missiles. But so long as Washington insists that a military solution or regime change is still on the table, the Kremlin will keep working to pin the blame not just on Kim Jong Un but on Donald Trump.

While China has been angered by North Korea's repeated nuclear and missile tests, it also blames the United States and South Korea for worsening tension with their military exercises and not doing enough to get talks back on track, as Beijing has proposed.

"Any country that hosts North Korean guest workers, provides any economic or military benefits, or fails to fully implement UN Security Council resolutions is aiding and abetting a risky regime". "Trade related to DPRK people's livelihood, especially those that reflect humanitarianism should not be influenced by the sanctions", Huang said. On top of this, it is easy for Moscow to take a position contrary to the United States on North Korea, because China will bear the brunt of most American frustration about Kim's intransigence.

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.

China suspended imports of North Korean coal in February, while imports of iron ore accord with relevant United Nations resolutions, he said.

Chinese and Russian displays of solidarity, which have taken the form of synchronized condemnations of US and consultation meetings, reinforce the message that China and Russia form a united front on the Korean Peninsula issue.

A ballistic missile that North Korea launched in May reached an altitude of more than 2,000km.

Previous Chinese customs data showed two-way trade with the North had risen 30.6 percent in dollar terms in the first three months of the year.

One US official said it is likely the Chinese spy ship was near Alaska to keep tabs on the missile defense test.

She told the Security Council last week that the U.S. planned a new resolution that would also ensure existing measures are enforced. Their state media reported, "As a full-fledged nuclear power that has been possessed of the most powerful intercontinental ballistic rocket capable of hitting any part of the world, along with nuclear weapons, the DPRK [North Korea] will fundamentally put an end to the usa nuclear war threat and blackmail".

While China remains the leading worldwide supporter of the North Korean regime, Russian Federation has deepened its relationship with Pyongyang, hoping to be perceived as an equal arbitration partner alongside China, rather than a junior partner following the Chinese official line.
