USA welcomes reduced China-N.Korea trade

China says main parties not in Vancouver for meeting on N. Korea, so won't attend

After North Korea tested its most powerful nuclear device yet and launched missiles capable of reaching the USA, the U.N. Security Council imposed a series of sanctions restricting oil imports and cutting off about 90 percent of its export revenue.

A senior U.S. official said Thursday the United States plans to lobby allies at a major meeting next week to stop and inspect suspect ships bound for North Korea.

Brian Hook, the State Department's policy director, said that the USA believes that its diplomatic pressure campaign is the best way to force North Korea to the negotiating table, and that maritime interdiction will help to crack down on smuggling and sanctions-busting.

"I have relationships with people".

Chinese government had also imposed sanctions on Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programme. The country explains its opposition by an alleged nuclear threat from the United States.

But Hook said the idea was one of many being explored, and that the allies invited to Vancouver would be consulted.

The countries invited to send representatives to Vancouver are the so-called "Sending Powers", those that contributed troops or aid to the United Nations war effort in 1950s Korea. China and Russian Federation, which both oppose the proposal for maritime interdiction, have not been invited to the summit.

That's a fine idea, except two of the top players in the region and the countries believed to have the most influence on North Korea- China and Russian Federation - aren't invited.

But Hook said Washington remained in contact with China about enforcing the sanctions and pressuring Kim, and that both Beijing and Moscow would be briefed after the talks.

Although U.N. sanctions ban countries from issuing new work visas to North Koreans, the waitresses working in China may be in the country on previously issued visas that have not reached expiration. "This is not an alternative to everything that we are doing".

"China has the same policy goal, in terms of ensuring that North Korea does not become a nuclear weapon state and acquire the means to deliver a nuclear warhead".
