China defends N Korea trade after its trucks haul missiles

China defends N Korea trade after its trucks haul missiles

Lu said Beijing wants to resume the multi-party negotiations that ended in stalemate in 2009 and suggested that US plans to deploy a missile defense system in South Korea were damaging its relations with China.

Paul says the worst-case scenario involving North Korea would be an attack on its southern neighbor, a major USA ally.

"While all options are on the table, ' Pence said, 'President Trump is determined to work closely with Japan, with South Korea, with all our allies in the region, and with China" to resolve the problem.

They will serve as the kickoff to the U.S. -Japan economic dialogue that was announced by President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in February.

He has sent a navy strike group towards the Korean Peninsula, and the United States and South Korea are moving ahead with the early deployment of a controversial missile defence system.

Pressure on North Korea is crucial, the prime minister said.

A senior North Korean official said Monday that the USA has created "a unsafe situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any minute".

Lu Chao, director of the Chinas Border Studies Institute at the Liaoning Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times that the latest test, despite its failure, could be another defiant message from Pyongyang that it will not change its tough stance in the face of United States pressure even though the failure showed that Pyongyangs missile technology was flawed.

For his part, Abe called for a peaceful solution to the crisis with North Korea, as reported by AFP.

Abe and Pence affirmed that the threat from North Korea has reached a new level and it is crucial to the peace and stability of the region for Japan and the United States to strengthen their alliance, according to a Japanese official who was present. It also claimed that it has weapons capable of attacking the mainland U.S. Officials and experts, however, claimed that no nation has mastered the necessary technology to follow through with the threat.

In the wake of US Vice-President Mike Pence's visit to South Korea to declare the era of strategic patience was over, China's Global Times newspaper wrote in an editorial that China will cooperate with the US by imposing stricter economic sanctions on Pyongyang that will devastate the North Korean economy, but it won't support a military strike.

China says it is seriously concerned about North Korean nuclear development, in the wake of a BBC interview with a top official from the North.

Pence's Asia tour came amid increasing tensions and heated rhetoric on the Korean Peninsula. The North held a show of military might in a parade over the weekend and tested another missile on Sunday, which the Pentagon said blew up nearly immediately after launch.

Vice foreign minister Han told the Associated Press last week that North Korea was prepared to handle a war with the U.S. North Korea's goal appears to be to impress the world with its nuclear prowess and pressure Washington into direct talks.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi repeated China's line that the crisis could only be resolved by diplomacy.
