It appears that President Trump’s talks with President Xi of China have really paid off. China seems to be taking a much stronger stance on North Korea and it has Lil Kim in Pyongyang fuming.
Beijing is having doubts about renewing its 56 year mutual assistance treaty, while North Korea’s state-run news agency “Korean Central News Agency” is running statements saying that “China is disloyal” and says that China has crossed the “red line”.
The statements aired were disguised as comments by a private citizen of North Korea. They also included:
“will never beg for the maintenance of friendship with China, risking its nuclear program which is as precious as its own life, no matter how valuable the friendship is” Kim Chol
China has been intensifying its efforts to rein in North Korea by pushing for new sanctions while simultaneously attempting to set the stage for diplomatic talks.
In an effort to cut down on any money and illegal smuggling into North Korea, China has stepped up customs inspections of all cargo trucks entering and leaving North Korea. Typically only a small number of these trucks are inspected, going forward ALL cargo trucks will be inspected by customs agents.
Word is that the sentiment inside the Chinese government is pushing towards ending the Sino-North Korean Mutual Aid and Cooperation Friendship Treaty.
As I had previously predicted, President Donald Trump’s gamble on President Xi is absolutely paying off.
