What Trump should do to avoid war with North Korea

24 Juin 2017

China and the United States have agreed to put "complete, verifiable and irreversible" efforts in denuclearising Korean Peninsula ahead of Xi-Trump next meeting in Hamburg during the G20 Summit next month.

Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis will be on the US-side, and on the Chinese side, their senior foreign policy adviser Yang Jiechi with military chief Fang Fenghui. The sales accounted for more than 50 percent of North Korea's exports to China previous year and about a fifth of its total trade, according to Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul.

The consensus document also highlighted the need to fully and strictly hold to U.N. Security Council resolutions and push for dialogue and negotiation, which has always been China's position on the issue.

As per the reports from the Chinese foreign ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang, who said on Tuesday that, this dialogue is hoped to seek many positive conclusions on the current situation, and this also might replace the various non-successful talks between the two nations.

The Xinhua statement also said military-to-military exchanges should also be upgraded and mechanisms of notification established in order to cut the risks of "judgment errors" between the Chinese and United States militaries.

The death of American university student Otto Warmbier earlier this week, after his release from 17 months of imprisonment in Pyongyang, further complicated Trump's approach to North Korea.

China, North Korea's main ally and trading partner, previously bought the commodity under exemptions that allowed trade for "livelihood" purposes.
