Trump tries diplomacy in countering North Korea's nuclear provocation

Trump tries diplomacy in countering North Korea's nuclear provocation”

"Owing to China's traditional economic ties with North Korea, it will mainly be China paying the price for implementing the resolution", a statement from Wang read, as reported by Reuters on Monday.

Even if, in the best-case scenario, the sanctions hurt North Korea's economy and weaken its government, questions remain over what to do next. Furthermore, they ban any new joint business ventures with the North Korean regime, as well as fresh investment into such existing ventures.

The diplomat also highlighted that on the sidelines of the AMM 50, Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh held a series of bilateral meetings with his counterparts from Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Australia, Laos, Canada, the US, New Zealand, China, Japan and the Republic of Korea, and the High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. Pyongyang said it was considering a missile strike on the U.S. territory of Guam.

"We emphasized the importance of non-militarization and self-restraint in the conduct of all activities by claimants and all other states", the communique, which came as Beijing and ASEAN signed a code of conduct for the South China Sea, said.

"When the conditions are right, then we can sit and have a dialogue around the future of North Korea so they feel secure and prosper economically", Tillerson told assembled reporters in Manilla.

The statement was made less than a week after Duterte criticized North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions.

North Korea's army said in a statement distributed by state media Wednesday that it was examining a plan to use ballistic missiles to make an "enveloping fire" around Guam, a US territory that is home to Andersen Air Force Base.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says Americans who are concerned about the situation in North Korea "should sleep well at night".

The US fears North Korea may one day use its missiles to deliver a nuclear payload to its west coast.

Governor Eddie Calvo said Guam had experienced a Japanese invasion in World War Two and countless earthquakes and super-typhoons, and there was no US community better prepared to meet the North Korean threat. "Making the warhead sufficiently small, light and robust to survive an ICBM delivery is extremely challenging and still beyond North Korea's reach".

The United Nations this month tightened sanctions on Pyongyang after it tested two ICBMs created to carry nuclear warheads to the United States.

They also mentioned in their 46-page statement a vague reference to an global arbitration ruling previous year that invalidated China's historical claims to virtually all of the strategic waterway. "There would be nothing in such an agreement that would be contrary to US national security interests, and it would provide to North Korea the security that it claims justifies its nuclear weapons programs". It can call upon nearly a quarter of its population to serve in the army at any given time. "Over one billion dollars in cost to N.K". It has long accused the United States and South Korea of escalating tensions by conducting military drills.

Those reassurances were meant to encourage North Korea to meet at the bargaining table.

The Pentagon said on Monday it was reviewing bilateral ballistic missile guidelines with South Korea that could allow Seoul to have more powerful missiles. In April, the United States sent its Carl Vinson aircraft carrier towards the Korean Peninsula, saying it was taking prudent measures against the North.

USA officials have said new US steps that would target Chinese banks and firms doing business with Pyongyang are in the works, but these have appeared to be put on hold to give Beijing time to show it is serious about enforcing new United Nations sanctions.

Stop testing missiles for an "extended period", Tillerson said, and the US might deem North Korea ready to talk.

"We do not seek a regime change", Tillerson said at a press conference on August 1.
