US considers sanctions on Chinese companies over North Korea

US considers sanctions on Chinese companies over North Korea

Bilateral trade between the two countries has steadily increased from less than half a billion dollars in 2000 to a peak of $6.86 billion in 2014, before dipping in 2015 and 2016. "Moscow and Beijing lived up to their promises, but the Americans and Japanese refused to do so".

"China has every incentive to continue to promote economic ties to the U.S.as does the U.S. with China, notwithstanding the recent geopolitical developments that have stalled the momentum", said Andrew Karolyi, a finance professor at Cornell University.

President Trump's bromance with China's Xi Jinping could soon run into trouble over trade. Most of all, Beijing is anxious that the THAAD system would neutralise its strategic advantage in the region and provide a major advantage to the United States in case of a future conflict.

"One of the things with the wall is you need transparency".

As unpalatable as it sounds, where has tough talk, ever-tightening trade sanctions and demands Kim give up his nukes gotten us? North Korea has developed an independent policy; it was independent during the Cold War period.

"I think we're headed for a rocky patch", said Charles Freeman, a former chief China trade negotiator for the U.S. "The challenges in our trade relationship are not going to be solved in 100 days and not in quite some time".

President of Asia's No. 4 economy for all of two months, Moon sits directly at the nexus of the two biggest challenges facing those 20 world powers.

The key buyer, as usual, is China.

Face it, Kim Jong-un giving up his nukes is a total non-starter.

The project resulted from the first inter-Korean summit meeting in 2000, when leaders of the two Koreas pledged reconciliation and cooperation.

On the plus side, the two sides produced a common front vis-à-vis North Korean security concerns.

In April, China positioned 150,000 troops along their much larger border with North Korea last week, as well as sending a fleet of fully-loaded cargo ships destined for North Korea back home.

China controls eighty percent of all foreign trade with North Korea, and is arguably its most important ally. Menacing his neighbors is what will imperil his rule. If we can't sway Washington, we can't sway Pyongyang. It has had many decades of having a policy of self-determination, or self-reliance. That said, it's difficult to shake the feeling there was something lacking in that South Korea-US summit preparation process.

Though the sources stressed that no final decisions had been made, they said China, North Korea's main trading partner, was crucial to pressuring Pyongyang to prevent it from achieving the capability of striking the United States with a nuclear-tipped missile.

Beijing believes from experience with past American Presidents, that if America is talking, it is not acting - and it is only acting that Beijing worries about. North Korea even refused to abide by its own statements. But despite its "slowdown" China is growing three times faster than the US.

"Tge Philippines has diplomatic space to do that", the official said. That makes it attractive to some state-owned Chinese steelmakers looking to reduce costs, she said. President Barack Obama, however, undercut Clinton.

She added that all of the demonstrations of strength are really a roadshow for the North to sell some very dangerous technology to a rogue nation or lone wolf. Harold Nicolson, the renowned British diplomat and scholar, long ago warned against the risks of politicians playing diplomatic roles. Dr. Petrov explains that the military dictatorship in North Korea uses the threat of war to encourage nationalism, that bolsters their power. This in itself is highly significant. It also seeks to blacklist the top 10 Chinese importers of North Korean items.

Trump must prove the Chinese wrong. Instead, it should awaken us to recognise the extreme danger created by current conditions between the US and China. As the old and tested saying goes, "actions speak louder than words".
