Mattis Calls Out China's 'Contempt' For Nations' 'Interests'

13 Juin 2017

The Trump administration has been pressing China aggressively to rein in its reclusive neighbor, warning that all options are on the table if Pyongyang persists with its nuclear and missile development programs.

"If the United States and its President continue to see allies and partners as purely transactional. that's going to put stress on relationships", said Ben Shreer, a defense analyst with the International Institute of Strategic Studies, the think-tank that organizes the defense conference.

"The United States is fully committed to defending ourselves and our allies against North Korean aggression", Haley said.

The resolution put North Korea's suspected spy chief, 13 other Pyongyang officials and four entities on a sanctions blacklist, hitting them with a global travel ban and an assets freeze.

The ministry said no matter what sanctions and pressure may follow, the North will not halt its pursuit of strengthened nuclear forces and continue to move forward toward the final victory.

"North Korea's strategic rocket force, the Koryo Bank and two trading firms were also added to the list".

It allegedly works with a North Korean trading company, Tangun, which the US accuses of securing supplies for the nuclear program.

North Korea blamed the U.S. and China for "railroading and enforcing" the sanctions resolution at the UN Security Council "after having drafted it in the backroom at their own pleasure".

The country has repeatedly violated a United Nations ban on ballistic missile tests, doing so even as recently as earlier this week.

It was Washington's "ultimate double standard" to ban other countries from nuclear or missile tests amid its own attempts to modernize the US arsenal.

In 2011, he was then extradited to Panama , where he was convicted of the murder of political opponents and other charges. He was then sent to France, where he was convicted of money laundering and was sentenced to seven-year prison sentence.

"It is incumbent on all parties concerned to exercise restraint and do more to ease tension and build mutual trust, instead of the contrary", Liu added.

China's public vote to penalize North Korea is a new chapter in what appears to be increasingly strained ties between the two.

North Korea's "ultra precision and diversified Juche Rocket" will continue to thunder and skyrocket in full blast in numbers and in succession until the United States and other like-minded countries take their "right choices", it added.

This picture released from North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on May 28, 2017 shows North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un (C-in white shirt) watching the test of a new anti-aircraft guided weapon system organized by the Academy of National Defense Science. But it differs from the United States and its allies on how to rein in the North's rapidly escalating nuclear and ballistic missile program.

North Korea has carried out two atomic tests and dozens of missile launches since the beginning of past year in its quest to develop a missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the continental United States.

The last round of complex sanctions imposed by the Security Council took three months to negotiate following Pyongyang's fifth nuclear test in September.

Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin told defense ministers and experts from 39 countries that Pyongyang's missile defense system "has a real function". "The security threats North Korea poses to the region and beyond have now entered a new stage", Inada said.

"It is therefore imperative that we do our part, each of us, to fulfill our obligations and work together to support our shared goal of denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula", Mattis said at the same summit.

In North Korea called the test act to those who were driven to despair.
