Trump Admin Preparing Another Round of China Sanctions over North Korea Ties

Rumors have flurried through the years of a possible "decapitation" strategy- the assassination of Kim Jong-un. THAAD was deployed hurriedly in the Republic of Korea (RoK) just weeks before the May 2017 Presidential elections, which saw the victory of Democratic Party candidate Mr. Moon Jae-in.

RFA's source said North Koreans do not mind they consume products inferior in quality because they are more affordable, according to the report. If North Korea is closed to vital trade, it would be pressured to make amends and stop seeking destructive missiles.

Earlier this month, India has reacted strongly to North Korea's launch of a nuclear missile. They have been playing the United States for years. Further, China has slowly reduced Hong Kong's level of autonomy, most likely with the goal of eventually being able to treat the city as it does any other major Chinese city - that is, without the special set of rules and allowances that Hong Kong has enjoyed since Great Britain returned the city to China. On April 13, 2017, he tweeted that he had "great confidence" in China's ability to rein in North Korea but left open the possibility that the U.S. could act alone if China failed to do so. Initial reports indicated that it landed within the exclusive economic zone of our ally, Japan, a country where we have tens of thousands of American service members, civilian employees and family members stationed, as well as ships, aircraft and bases. First, China seems intent on expanding its borders, which has led them into territorial disputes with the Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, and Malaysia. Add Stanford, Yale, Dartmouth, Chicago and other top-tier private American universities so popular with China's "red nobility" i.e., the children and grandchildren of Communist Chinese elites. After the surprise test launch of an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) on July 4, the threat of violent confrontation with North Korea could be very real. This was a capacity, Mr Trump had repeatedly asserted that North Korea would not be allowed to possess.

It would also "block any entity or financial institution implicated in any significant trade in goods or services with North Korea from the US financial system", including the top ten largest Chinese importers of North Korean goods. He referred to "tough pressures" that China faces in its relationship with North Korea.

North Korean iron tends to be of higher quality than the ore found in China, according to Sabrin Chowdhury, a commodities analyst with BMI Research in Singapore. An online article in the official People's Daily this week accused the U.S. and Japan of using the "China responsibility theory" to hide their own failure on the Korean Peninsula. "Why should we continue these deals with countries that do not help us?" After Trump publicly pressed Beijing to rein in economic support for the rogue regime, trade between China and North Korea grew more than 37 percent in the first quarter, a statistic available in April but which Trump didn't publicly acknowledge until last week.

As there is a possibility that Kim might decide to open fire on the US, the USA has been stepping up its missile defense capabilities. China has also retaliated against South Korean firms in entertainment and travel, and blocked online trade in South Korean goods.

"Should the U.N. Security Council adopt another 'resolution on sanctions, ' this will trigger corresponding measures", KCNA cited the official as saying. "Simple accumulated data can not be used as evidence to question China's severe attitude in carrying out UN Security Council resolutions", Huang told a news briefing. "That is not going to happen".

A US senator introduced legislation on Friday looking to prohibit any entities engaging with North Korea from the dollar system and to impose sanctions on businesses using North Korean labor.
