US Weakens Resolution on North Korea to Gain Chinese and Russian Support

That is the real reason that we're having an ongoing crisis.

The resolution, adopted in response to Pyongyang's sixth and strongest nuclear test explosion, bans North Korea from importing all natural gas liquids and condensates.

Peru stressed that it was committed to a peaceful solution to the dispute and "strict compliance" with resolutions passed by the United Nations Security Council. Monday's resolution added just Workers' Party of Korea Central Military Commission member Pak Yong Sik, the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea, the party's Organization and Guidance Department and its Propaganda and Agitation Department to the sanctions list.

Peru also said on Monday that it was expelling North Korea's ambassador over the country's refusal to pay attention to the world's "constant calls" to end its nuclear program.

Serving as the main economic lifeline for North Korea, China accounts for about 90 percent of Pyongyang's trade and is a major supplier of oil to the country.

North Korea's government blasted the sanctions and claimed the U.S. would "suffer the greatest pain ever" for supporting them. Despite deep frustration with Kim Jong-un, North Korea is a Chinese neighbour and ally, a fellow Leninist state with a shared victim narrative about the past and a shared ambition for the future to remove the US presence in North East Asia.

The U.S. president has wavered between criticizing China for not doing enough on North Korea to heaping personal praise on the Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Since 2008, photographer Eric Lafforgue ventured to North Korea six times. But I don't think North Korea would go that far - with the dismantlement.

Under the measure, countries are authorized to inspect ships suspected of carrying banned North Korean cargo but must first seek the consent of the flag-state.

RT: Russia and China have proposed North Korea freeze nuclear and ballistic missile tests, while South Korea and the US stop their military exercises.

At the same time, muttering mounts among Chinese experts and the public as to the wisdom of tightrope walking and the availability of alternatives. But an official who was involved at the negotiation said this was, you know, their strategy.

The United States and China "have two fundamentally different purposes", said Joseph Cirincione, president of the Plowshares Fund, a San Francisco-based organization that promotes nuclear nonproliferation.

Mansky's proposal is to leave North Korea alone in its self-imposed isolation - that is, if the civilized world can stand the thought of Kim's regime committing its endless crime against the North Korean people and bear with the constant taunting of missile launches and threats.

He said North Korean bank representatives still operate in Russia in "flagrant disregard" of UN resolutions that Moscow voted for.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the sanctions were much stronger than earlier measures and urged Pyongyang to take "concrete action" toward denuclearization.

China's official Xinhua news agency said in a commentary that the Trump administration was making a mistake by rejecting diplomatic engagement with North Korea.

After a meeting of the 28 EU foreign ministers in Tallinn last week, Mogherini said work would begin on new measures against the North to add to the broad range of sanctions the bloc already has in place.
