China says willing to pay the price for new North Korea sanctions
12 August 2017, 12:21 | Regina Holmes
Wang Yi said new resolution showed China and the international community’s opposition to North Korea’s continued missile tests
China, North Korea's lone major ally, has repeatedly said it is committed to enforcing increasingly tough United Nations resolutions on North Korea, though it has also said what it terms "normal" trade and ordinary North Koreans should not be affected.
His remarks followed a rare exchange on Sunday between the foreign ministers of the two Koreas on the sidelines of the Manila forum, during which the North's Ri Yong-Ho showed no signs his nation had been intimidated by the latest rounds of sanctions.
North Korea said the sanctions infringed its sovereignty and it was ready to give Washington a "severe lesson" with its strategic nuclear force in response to any United States military action.
Mr Trump later took to social media to hail the vote, thanking Russian Federation and China in a Twitter post for backing the sanctions that either could have halted with their UN veto, adding that he was "very happy and impressed with 15-0 United Nations vote on North Korea sanctions".
US President Donald Trump praised other nations for addressing North Korea's missile programme.
Tillerson's remarks might be an attempt to try another tack by the United States, which also has tried to get Pyongyang's ally China to use its influence to prevent North Korean leader Kim Jong Un from building a nuclear arsenal.
"The U.S. asks China for help when it can not solve its problems with North Korea".
The ARF is a key forum for security dialogue in Asia, complementing the various bilateral alliances and dialogues.
"South Korea's security can not be built on a foundation of China not being secure", Wang said over the weekend.
The meeting discussed issues of regional and global security including the issue of North Korea's recent long range missile test and the situation of South China Sea. Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the UN, told the UN Security Council on Saturday that the U.S. would continue its annual joint military exercises with South Korea, and "take prudent defensive measures to protect ourselves and our allies".
"I'm not going to give someone a specific number of days or weeks".
The Russian foreign minister was quoted as telling Kang, "The Russian government will cooperate with the South Korean government closely for their common goal of attaining a denuclearized Korean Peninsula through peaceful ways under the firm principle of never condoning North Korea's nuclear program". It also prohibits countries from increasing the numbers of North Korean labourers now working overseas, bans new joint ventures with North Korea and any new investment in current joint ventures.
But Yonhap reported that Mr Ri retorted: "Given the current situation in which the South collaborates with the USA to heap pressure on the North, such proposals lacked sincerity".
Ravens say Joe Flacco will be ready for Week 1
Flacco will not participate in the preseason; given the possibility of aggravating his back injury, that's probably a smart move. Backups Josh Woodrum and Dustin Vaughan combined to go 5-for-5 for 95 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore's 23-3 exhibition win.
