Japan hopes new North Korea sanctions proposal ready in days

U.S. Department of Defense

Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet ... they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk.

Economic measures against China may reportedly come from the Trump administration sometime this week.

China has washed its hands of responsibility for curbing North Korea's nuclear weapons programme, saying it was up to Pyongyang and Washington to sort out their differences.

While the U.S. mainstream media outlets and politicians continue to push ahead with the narrative of "Russian traces" in the United States election campaign, it is unlikely that it will result in an all-out nuclear confrontation, Russian online newspaper Vzglyad notes, stressing that Washington's provocative actions toward North Korea are a different story.

By Trump taking to Twitter instead of taking responsibility for North Korea itself, he's simply "adding kindling or, even worse, pouring oil on the flames". Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who opened up Washington's relations with Beijing, has reportedly suggested to current U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and senior U.S. officials to draw a different approach in convincing China to take a stronger stance on North Korea.

The Security Council has already imposed six rounds of progressively tougher sanctions on North Korea, but so far that has failed to halt the country's rapidly advancing nuclear and ballistic missile programs. The regional security conference brings together top diplomats from all six member countries of the stalled six-party denuclearization talks - the US, China, Japan, Russia and the two Koreas.

According to Vzglyad columnist Petr Akopov, the North Korean issue initially emerged as a tool for blackmail against China.

On Monday, two US officials told Reuters that North Korea's latest test of an intercontinental ballistic missile has shown it may be able to reach most of the United States.

He and many other lawmakers continue to call on China to help thwart North Korea's nuclear program.

"All parties should have a correct understanding of this", it said, adding the worldwide community widely recognized China's efforts to seek a resolution.

China's ambassador to the United Nations, Liu Jieyi, said on Monday the USA and North Korea hold the primary responsibility to reduce tensions and resume talks over denuclearisation.

Any new U.N. Security Council resolution "that does not significantly increase the global pressure on North Korea is of no value", Haley said, adding that Japan and South Korea also needed to do more.

While China worries about North Korea's nuclear and missile programs, and the USA reaction to them, its overriding concern, US officials say, is to avoid a North Korean collapse, which could send millions of refugees fleeing toward China and lead to a reunified Korea allied with Washington.

"We're making significant progress on that, working with both sides of Pennsylvania Avenue", said William Evanina, National Counterintelligence Executive, referring to the White House and Congress. In short, China and the United States would follow this arrangement.
