North Korea Raises US-China Tensions

Share

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's warning came after a series of events that has sent regional tensions soaring, including provocative North Korean missile tests, the annual U.S.

The basic framework is expected to emerge later this month following US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's visits to South Korea, China, and Japan next week.

The U.S. has moved to accelerate its deployment of its so-called THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) missile system in South Korea in response to several missile tests by the North Korean regime.

The first pieces of a US-built missile defense system created to mitigate the threat of North Korean missiles arrived at the Osan Air Base in South Korea Monday night, according to the U.S. military.

But the same source added that military actions could receive renewed attention if North Korea test-launches an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of striking against the US.

Military in South Korea, Japan and the United States all confirmed the launch of four projectiles, which one USA official said were intermediate range missiles. Amid tough language toward the US and its neighbors to the south, North Korea has carried recent tests that show marked improvement in its missile technology.

Continuing with the train crash analogy, Wang said Wednesday: "The question is: Are the two sides really ready for a head-on collision?" The plan to install a THAAD system on the Korean peninsula was laid out by the USA and South Korea last summer.

This isn't the first time North Korea has launched multiple missiles over this distance.

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement that Monday's launches were made from the Tongchang-ri area in North Pyongan province. The two condemned the launches and agreed to boost cooperation to get the North to face more effective sanctions and pressure, according to South Korea's presidential office.

He called North Korea "the most significant and the most immediate" nuclear threat. That means it could be struck by shorter range rockets and artillery, of which North Korea has thousands of units. -South Korea military drills it sees as a preparation for war. It would be nice to hope that matters will calm down once the U.S.

Wang, who answered a range of questions at a briefing on the sidelines of China's annual national legislative sessions, also urged South Korea to suspend deployment of a USA anti-missile system, saying Seoul had made a "wrong choice".

Yang Xiyu, a former senior Chinese official who once oversaw the six-party talks on North Korea's nuclear program in the 2000s, says it's hard to predict what steps Beijing will take now that the deployment is under way.

Though Mr Trump's precise plans are unknown, the administration's comments on North Korea so far suggest they think it's up to China to play a bigger role. Beijing's support for Pyongyang could be wavering, however, as it recently announced a year-long freeze on imports of North Korean coal.
