Trump speaks to China, Japan leaders over growing North Korea threat

03 Julio 2017

"President Trump raised the growing threat posed by North Korea s nuclear and ballistic missile programmes".

"From the beginning, President Trump has tied all these US-China issues together expecting cooperation from China on North Korea for cooperation from the US on these other issues", said Anthony Ruggiero, a North Korea expert and senior fellow at the Defense for Democracy.

The two countries have built high-level political and strategic trust, the Chinese President said, noting that both countries have completely resolved their border issues, turning the 4,300-km boundary line into a bond of friendship. If China stops supply of POL, will the North Korean leadership succumb? And now, the Argentine football legend had his say on politics, blatantly ridiculing US President Donald Trump. While America's military is by far the strongest, the gap with China is rapidly narrowing. As a result, the international counter-terrorism cooperation tends to be fragmented and treated as a convenient tool.

In exchange for Xi's agreement to help restrain North Korea, the Trump administration loosened or withdrew US pressure in other areas, including the South China Sea and Trump's previous campaign pledge to label China a currency manipulator.

"It is significant that (the sanctions) occurred on the afternoon of Moon's visit", Ruggiero told CNN. The US is also said to be preparing to impose punitive restrictions on Chinese steel imports. Kushner, who is heavily involved in foreign policy, speaks frequently with the ambassador. After accepting a congratulatory phone call from Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen, Trump went on to question why the United States needed to support a 'one China' position and avoid improving contacts with Taiwan.

These techniques have allowed pirates to quickly recover from most legal action. And he linked measures against China's huge trade surplus to the resolution of the North Korean problem.

China has accused the U.S. of using the threat in the Korean peninsula to build up its military presence in the region. The White House made no mention of the subject.

The document signed by the Russian President on creating a "register of corrupt officials" among officials in Russia - amendments to article 419 of the federal law On the Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation - was published on the official portal of legal information.

On Friday, Trump declared that the era of U.S. strategic patience with the North Korean regime "is over".

The Trump administration may not have harbored lofty expectations for its diplomacy with Beijing. As they wait, those seeking a coherent and well-integrated US strategy toward Southeast Asia are likely to be disappointed. "Synergy is hard to forge under such circumstances", Xi said.
