Canada, US to host meeting on North Korea

13 Января 2018

But diplomats also said they are not completely knowledgeable of how North Korea could achieve nuclear parity with a powerful United States. This comes after Beijing released year-end customs figures on Friday, showing that imports from North Korea were down 33-percent a year ago, and over 80-percent in December.

And with reports that the Chinese regime is enforcing that new level of sanctions enough to matter, the Trump administration is showing increasing confidence in its push towards a diplomatic option.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement on Friday.

On the United States' willingness to engage in dialogue with North Korea, he said that there was some sign of positive interaction between North Korea and the South Korean peninsula which was receiving the great attention of the global community.

The decrease was even more noticeable in December, with overall trade between the two countries coming in 50.6 percent lower than the figure from the previous year. The U.S. sees cutting off North Korea's economic ties with China - the country's dominant trading partner - as essential to forcing Kim back to the negotiating table.

The State Department is hoping to cement those gains with other measures at an upcoming meeting in Vancouver, according to Brian Hook, Director of Policy Planning for the Secretary. "They are doing a better job of implementing the U.N. Security Council resolutions".

Chinese government had also imposed sanctions on Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programme.

But Hook said America has kept China informed on enforcing sanctions and added that both it and Russian Federation would be briefed after the Vancouver conference.

The two Koreas held their first high-level talks in more than two years this week, leading some to expect an easing of tensions ahead of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in the South next month.

A Japanese foreign ministry official, meanwhile, was quoted by Bloomberg News on Wednesday raising questions about the involvement of countries such as Colombia and Greece, which are peripheral to the North Korea crisis.
