China and Russia will exert a double pressure on North Korea and the United States. If you hope that the North Koreans will cease to conduct missile and nuclear tests, the United States will have to temper their military threat.
American President Donald trump shortly before the G20 meeting in Hamburg was faced with a demand from Russia and China to stop military exercises with South Korea if there is hope that North Korea would agree to stop developing missiles of distant radius of action, as well as nuclear weapons and start peace talks.
For the US, it will turn the world upside down. It is impossible to predict how the card will react to that statement, after he spent months trying to convince Chinese President XI Jinping that China should give North Korea the maximum pressure to force the Communist regime to stop launching missiles and testing nuclear weapons. To no avail. North Korea continues to test missiles like the one that was launched the day before yesterday and fell in the economic sea zone of Japan.
Up to military exercises
The new requirements came yesterday in a clearer statement from the Chinese Ambassador to UN Liu Jieyi (Liu Jieyi), who said that the crisis with North Korea is not growing, it’s time to start completely different maneuvers, namely a gradual reduction in the presence of us military equipment and employees on the Korean Peninsula in exchange for North Korean cessation of nuclear weapons tests and missile. You can then begin regular peace talks between South and North Korea.
Regarding the latter, there is no indication that North Korea is interested in this. Therefore, it is also doubtful that the US will agree to cancel the military exercises with South Korea and to withdraw their missile defense THAAD. These systems are ABOUT able to repel the North Korean missiles.
Common Sino-Russian front was formed yesterday during a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and XI in Moscow. No one knows how to react to a trump. He spent months trying to force China to influence North Korea to stop developing its nuclear program. But as trump says, his efforts came to no avail.
Sanctions, leaky as a sieve
Of course, North Korea has been subjected to extensive UN sanctions, which was also supported by China. But, according to American diplomats that these sanctions are leaky like a sieve, and it means that China is to some extent still has the ability to trade with North Korea and thereby to pour money into the country that can go on the development of military programs, Kim Jong-UN.
Now the crisis is so acute that even talks about a military solution with North Korea. The problem is that such a development can be extremely dangerous. North Korea has considerable military power, including missiles and artillery, considerable impact forces. The South Korean capital Seoul is within range of North Korean artillery, and even one sent to military action the United States could cost the lives of thousands of South Koreans.
The missile that was launched recently, have done more a long way and lasted longer in the air than the former. She can easily hit all of Alaska, say American diplomats, and if the North Koreans will soon be able to put in that rocket atomic charge, North Korea has de facto become a nuclear power is an unacceptable threat, according to the United States.
But solutions are not many. Anthony Ruggiero (Ruggiero Anthony), one of the leading experts on U.S. diplomatic and military solutions at the Foundation for defense of democracies, told the Washington Post that the United States missed a chance to do something in the last two years.
“It was the result of a combination of failed negotiations with time spent on “strategic patience,” which had borne no fruit,” said he.
The expression “strategic patience” refers to the predecessor of the tramp — by the time when the White house sat Barack Obama. It security policy and foreign policy was called “era of strategic patience”, and it is invested not the most positive sense.
