North Korea says no negotiations over its nukes

North Korea says no negotiations over its nukes

President Donald Trump is touting new sanctions on North Korea just approved by the U.N. Security Council.

If fully implemented, the new sanctions-which target coal, seafood, and metals exports; prohibit the employment of North Korean guest workers; and expand sanctions on joint economic ventures-could cut North Korea's $3 billion annual export revenue by a third, according to USA officials. North Korea earns approximately $3 billion per year from exports, according to the US mission to the United Nations, meaning the sanctions could block as much as one-third of North Korea's revenue.

Speaking at a regional security forum in Manila on Monday, Wang said the new resolution showed China and the global community's opposition to North Korea's continued missile tests, the foreign ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

North Korea's foreign minister dismissed South Korea's recent offer for talks as "lacking sincerity" during his brief encounter with Seoul's top diplomat on the sidelines of an Asian security forum in Manila on Sunday, according to a Seoul government source. "Its content itself is very important and it would have a substantive impact, and we talked a lot about the cooperation of China and Russian Federation during the process", Kang told reporters after the 35-minute session.

China has suggested the USA and South Korea halt joint military exercises in exchange for a halt to North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile testing.

Trump's administration has threatened military action if necessary to stop North Korea from obtaining an intercontinental ballistic missile that can strike the US with a nuclear weapon. The sanctions also halt any expansion of North Korea's guest-worker programs in other countries. "With his approval ratings falling even with his base, Trump is trapped between the realities of dealing with China and his campaign promises to get tough on trade". Foreign ministers from China, Russia, South Korea and Japan all spoke with their North Korean counterpart Ri Yong Ho in Manila.

USA missile shield not certain to protect Guam from North Korea
For years now, we have learned to not take Pyongyang seriously when it lets loose with it colorful rhetorical barrages. In that case, Onedera said that Japan could exercise the right to collective self-defense and intercept the missiles.

Thornton says the USA wants to ensure that with the new sanctions, there's "not this kind of episodic back and forth that we've seen".

Trump, whose administration is moving to crack down on leaks of USA government information, also retweeted a Fox News report based on anonymous sources that said US spy satellites had detected North Korea moving anti-ship cruise missiles to a patrol boat. Last month's pair of groundbreaking tests of long-range ballistic missiles has put the continental United States in range for the first time.

"It was a good outcome", Tillerson said Sunday about the sanctions.

"We want to make sure China is continuing to implement fully the sanctions regime", she said.

There is no pro-China way of spinning this: The Chinese, seen in some circles as an unstoppable behemoth, proved to be a paper tiger on the issue of the North Korea in the face of the tough stance shown by Trump and his administration.

Wang said that apart from the new sanctions, the resolution also made clear that the six-party talks process, a stalled dialogue mechanism with North Korea that also includes Russian Federation and Japan, should be restarted.

While the National Football League preseason has just started, it looks like the Buffalo Bills are making some moves. The Bills have to hope a team that already has a QB stumbles on some bad luck, and ends up with a top five pick.

So far, outsourcing its North Korea policy to China has not worked for the United States.

Tillerson was later expected to see Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and China's Wang Yi - both key players in the North Korean nuclear standoff.

The test added pressure to an already tense situation with isolated North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

Earlier Pyongyang said it was ready to give Washington a "severe lesson" with its strategic nuclear force in response to any United States military action. As it stands, it does not look like North Korea will budge on USA and United Nations demands.

"I'm not convinced China has made the judgment that the regime in North Korea is more harmful to Chinese interests than reforming or eliminating the regime", Lefkowitz told USA TODAY.

South Korean news agency Yonhap reported Ms Kang as saying that Mr Ri's rejection of the talks proposal appeared to be connected to the new sanctions.
