North Korea sanctionsDonald Trump asks Xi Jinping to cut off North Korea’s oil supply to stop nuclear programme

US President Donald Trump asked President Xi Jinping to halt all oil shipments to North Korea to stop its neighbour’s nuclear weapons programme following Pyongyang’s test launch of a ballistic missile experts say could reach the US mainland.

“President Trump called Chinese President Xi [Jinping] this morning and told him that we’ve come to the point where China must cut off the oil from North Korea. That would be a pivotal step in the world’s effort to stop this international pariah,” Washington’s United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said.

“We know the main driver of [North Korea’s] nuclear production is oil,” Haley said on Wednesday at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.
The Security Council meeting pitted the US, Japan and its other allies against China and Russia, which accused the US of intensifying North Korea’s determination to develop nuclear weapons capability. Haley also accused China of not enforcing existing sanctions against North Korea.

China’s Deputy UN Ambassador Wu Haitao blamed the US for ignoring a joint Sino-Russian “suspension-for-suspension” proposal, wherein the US would halt joint military exercises with South Korea in exchange for a halt in North Korea’s missile testing. Russia cited US Air Force bomber flights near North Korean territory as provocations that stiffened Pyongyang’s resolve in producing nuclear weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to say, regarding stiffening North Korea's resolve to develop a steerable, targetable nuclear missle, capable of hitting the US, the Chinese Ambassador is entirely correct, that the US is completely ignoring the joint Russian/Chines proposal of "suspension for suspension", which may give negotiations a slight chance of moving forward.

It appears, with President Trump, his approach represents a "My way, or the highway!" kind of thinking.

This is absolutely the polar opposite of the approach he, Nikki Haley, Mattis, and Tillerson should be taking, to get some real tangible progress moving here.


My way or the hiway is.....

Ethan Allen and...

the way the district of criminals always"negotiates". Ask the American tribal People. It will continue until another party beats their asses into the ground. Which means America will be destroyed if these criminals keep this up much longer. America's main and worst enemies reside in the district of criminals. These bums will do anything to protect their cushy lifestyles,including getting all of us killed.
