China Supports UN Action on North Korea While Urging Talks

Open this

President Donald Trump renewed a threat Thursday to use military force against North Korea and raised doubts about whether negotiations could succeed in resolving the brewing crisis over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons.

"These economic tools need to be combined with robust military deterrent, including imposing a USA -led global naval blockade of North Korea in order to ensure a full enforcement of United Nations actions", Gardner said. But he insisted that military action wouldn't be his first choice. Is it inevitable? Nothing's inevitable. "It would be great if something else could be worked out". "Each day, new equipment is delivered; new and handsome equipment, the best in the world - the best anywhere in the world, by far". More formally called thermonuclear devices, H-bombs have the potential to be far stronger than simpler fission bombs like those used on Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States at the end of World War II.

Beijing said it agreed the United Nations should take more action against North Korea.

The administration official played down the significance of Trump not ruling out the possibility of a nuclear North Korea, saying it runs counter to his past views on the issue. Trump has responded by sending troops and ships to the region in a show of force.

The official, who was briefing reporters on condition of anonymity under ground rules set by the administration, said the United States remains focused on building worldwide pressure on North Korea rather than seeking talks.

Trump didn't answer a question about whether he would accept North Korea as a nuclear power and switch the US strategy to one of containment and deterrence.

Stoltenberg, during a news conference at a military base in Estonia, also called on North Korea to "abandon all nuclear and ballistic missile programs", adding that their nuclear program is in "violation of multiple UN Security Council resolutions and a major threat to the non-proliferation regime".

Xi discussed North Korea with Trump in phone calls on Wednesday, and with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday.

"Given the new developments on the Korean peninsula, China agrees that the U.N. Security Council should make a further response and take necessary measures", Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters on Thursday.

Washington and Seoul say the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system allows South Korea and US troops stationed in the country to better cope with the threat of North Korean missiles.

The long-standing objective of the USA and its allies, as well as China and Russian Federation, has been to seek the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula although the chances of realizing that goal have diminished as the North has advanced its nuclear program.

The draft resolution includes a full ban on exports of oil to North Korea, a full ban on textile imports from North Korea, a ban on North Korean laborers generating earnings overseas, and the asset freeze, which will also target members of the ruling worker's party, the diplomat said, calling it a "hard-hitting, ambitious resolution".

The kind of nuclear deterrence policy that the United States adopted toward the former Soviet Union would probably not work with North Korea, the official said.
