China rejects threats as solution for North Korea nuclear crisis

China rejects threats as solution for North Korea nuclear crisis”

The panel of independent experts challenged North Korean officials over allegations of forced child labor, sexual abuse and trafficking in North Korea, Pyongyang's health and education budget, and Internet access for children.

The communist state has so far overcome all efforts to stanch its progress toward its stated goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile that could target the US mainland.

The United States with its allies Japan and South Korea flew fighter jets and bombers over the Korean peninsula in a show of force against President Kim Jong Un's regime after it fired an intercontinental ballistic missile over Japan last week, the U.S. military said on Monday. The Chinese, bent on building their own world empire, are pleased to see America's attention focused on Kim Jong Un, the North Korean potentate who has, to a great extent, diverted American scrutiny from the much more important inroads China is making across the world. The test showed that the USA territory of Guam is now in range of a North Korean attack.

South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo told lawmakers on Monday that it is "not proper" to reintroduce USA nuclear weapons.

The US and South Korea ended a 1950-53 war with North Korea through a truce, not a peace treaty, which effectively leaves the two sides of the conflict technically at war. He previously said the idea should be "deeply considered" by the allies, inflaming already-heated debate on the issue.

President Donald Trump, who is scheduled to address the 193-member body for the first time on Tuesday, dubbed North Korea's leader "Rocket Man" in a tweet over the weekend. China in turn favors an global response to the problem.

The Korean peninsula issue must be resolved peacefully, Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi stressed during a meeting with his Russian counterpart at the United Nations.

Diplomacy and dialogue will not work with North Korea and concerted pressure by the entire worldwide community is essential to tackle the threats posed by North Korea, Abe wrote.

US President Donald Trump had discussed North Korea's "continued defiance of the worldwide community" with President Xi Jinping, the White House said on Monday.

They were joined by four South Korean F-15K fighters in drills that are now being held on a near-weekly basis, South Korea's defence ministry said.

China has faced criticism for failing to act decisively against Pyongyang after a string of nuclear and missile tests this summer; its latest coming last Friday over Japan.
