Trump Eyes China Sanctions While Seeking Its Help on North Korea

figure.prepend(style); }); }); In their phone conversation on Friday night, Mr. Xi stressed that it was “very important” for the two leaders to maintain contact to find “an appropriate solution to the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula,” according to a statement carried in the Chinese state-run media. The language indicated China wants to push forward with a diplomatic proposal for North Korea that the Trump administration has brushed aside. The Chinese statement urged the “relevant sides” — a reference to North Korea and the United States — to “avoid words and actions that exacerbate tensions.” It did not explicitly criticize North Korea, which issued its own searing rhetoric all week, including a threat against Guam, and did not draw a clear distinction between Washington and Pyongyang. In its own account of the call, the White House emphasized points of concurrence. “President Trump and President Xi agreed North Korea must stop its provocative and escalatory behavior,” read a statement from the White House issued early Saturday morning. “The presidents also reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.” If Mr. Trump was trying to move Mr. Xi toward bolder action against the North, he did so while the Chinese leader is preoccupied with his own domestic political machinations, attending to a once-every-five-year political shake-up in the top ranks of the Communist Party […]

Trump Alarms Venezuela With Talk of a ‘Military Option’

Venezuelan officials did not confirm the White House’s account of the phone call. They seemed shocked that Mr. Trump had mentioned their country — troubled for weeks by protests and charges of election fraud — alongside a nuclear-armed North Korea.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Trump Says Military Is ‘Locked and Loaded’ and North Korea Will ‘Regret’ Threats

figure.prepend(style); }); }); If Mr. Trump was hoping his sharp warnings would provoke a response from China, he chose an odd moment. Chinese leaders, including President Xi Jinping, are largely focused on domestic politics. Top officials have gathered at Beidaihe, a seaside retreat more than 170 miles east of Beijing, to map out a once-every-five-years leadership reshuffle of the ruling Communist Party that is to take place this fall. The Foreign Ministry is on summer break from its daily news conferences and posted a written statement on Friday with a typical plea for restraint and dialogue. China hopes that all parties would “speak and act with caution and do more things that are conducive to de-escalating the tense situation and enhancing mutual trust among parties, rather than relapse into the old path of showing assertiveness and escalating tensions,” the statement said. The state-run news media has largely avoided mentions of North Korea or Mr […]

South Korea Says U.S. Promises Coordination in Standoff With North

figure.prepend(style); }); }); South Korea’s emphasis on transparency on Friday followed a series of statements opposing an armed conflict with the North. Although most South Koreans loathe the repressive regime in the North and its nuclear pursuit, they also are afraid that the South has more to lose in a war than the impoverished North, a fear that the regime of Kim Jong-un, the North’s leader, has been using as leverage. After Mr. Moon talked with Mr. Trump on the phone on Monday, his office said he emphasized that “South Korea can never accept a war erupting again on the Korean Peninsula.” On Thursday, his office said the escalation of military tensions or an armed clash would “not help any country.” Leaders of Mr […]

News Analysis: Wrestling With North Korea, Trump Finds Perilous Options

The Trump administration’s first recourse has been diplomacy. Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson sought to head off North Korea’s missile program this week by suggesting that the United States could open talks with Pyongyang if North Korea would halt its missile tests.On Thursday, however, North Korea raised the stakes by saying that it was considering a plan to test-fire four intermediate-range Hwasong-12 missiles in international waters near Guam, home to American air and naval bases as well as a Thaad antimissile system.Mr. Trump hinted broadly later in the day that he has his own military options in mind. “Obviously we’re spending a lot of time looking at, in particular, North Korea,” he told reporters, “and we are preparing for many different alternative events.”But few of the military options are straightforward, and some former Pentagon officials involved in war planning for North Korea pointed to the complexities.A major consideration would be whether and when to evacuate American and other allied civilians, which is no small feat as Seoul, a city of about 10 million, is within range of North Korea’s rockets and artillery and the North Korean military is also armed with chemical and biological weapons.“With all this talk, what I worry about is a serious miscalculation,” said James D. […]

As Trump Unnerves Asia, China Sees an Opening

“The Chinese don’t like North Korea’s nuclear program, but the current situation does serve their longer-term interests in eroding American leadership, because it provides a whole new set of circumstances in which America shows its weakness,” said Hugh White, a former senior defense strategist in the Australian government.Mr. Trump’s threat has particularly unsettled America’s main Asian allies, Japan and South Korea, adversaries and neighbors of North Korea that have increasingly vocal lobbies for acquiring their own nuclear weapons to counter Pyongyang’s.China and Japan are far from being close. But China is trying to improve its relations with South Korea, and it sees opportunity there as Mr. Trump threatens pre-emptive action against North Korea, which would be anathema to the liberal government of the South’s new president, Moon Jae-in.PhotoKim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, in a state-issued photo from May. “A striking impression is how little China sees the threats by either North Korea or Trump as credible,” an analyst said.Credit Korean Central News Agency, via Agence France-Presse — Getty ImagesAttempts by Secretary of State Rex W.
