This morning is full of surprises. Since President Trump took office, the relations between China and the United States got worse and this is why this move is very unusual to us.
China made a step forward and made a massive announcement in support of America against North Korea. They just decided to carry out United Nations sanctions that were imposed on North Korea earlier this month.
ConsNation reports that this isn’t the only thing. President Trump was on his way to Washington this morning to order an investigation into China’s trade practice. This could lead the United States to impose their own sanctions on Bejing.
President Trump has sought help from China because they have the capability to apply massive financial pressure on North Korea if they wanted to. However, in the recent months, he has gotten less help from China not more, which is what led him to the trade probe. He was highly critical of China during the election but softened his tone when reaching the White House.
The President planned on giving us this information first but China’s Commerce Ministry on Monday has officially announced that all imports of coal, iron ore, lead concentrates and ore, lead and seafood from North Korea would be banned.
Meanwhile, ConsNation says that U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, called it “the single largest economic sanctions passage” against Pyongyang.
However, she went on to give a warning to other council members stating, “We should not fool ourselves into thinking we have solved the problem, not even close.”
China’s step is very significant not only for America but to the whole world. North Korea is threatening the world and has been for too long. Special sanctions like this one, need to be provided often.
