U.S. pushes United Nations to maintain sanctions pressure on N Korea

U.S. pushes United Nations to maintain sanctions pressure on N Korea

Pompeo also called for an end to sanctions violations and Haley said the best way the talks between the United States and North Korea could be supported was by enforcing, not easing, sanctions. But Trump has recently been playing down expectations of quick results, saying this week there was "no time limit" on getting North Korea to denuclearize.

Trump's interest in the issue has put a particularly bright spotlight on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has tried to wring concessions from his counterpart, Kim Yong Chol, a former spy chief viewed by the Trump Administration as uncompromising and unable to negotiate outside the most explicit directives from Kim Jong Un. Speaking of the USA complaint, she added, "Now for China and Russian Federation to block it, what are they telling us?" You're being tough on China, and you should be, but China is pulling North Korea back.

Oil Rises as Saudi Forecast a Decline in Export in August
A Reuters survey of Opec production showed Saudi output at a near-record, up 700,000 barrels a day at 10.70-million barrels a day. If you want 11 million reasons to be optimistic about America, you might want to start with counting barrels of crude oil .

However, as days have passed by, American negotiators have faced it increasingly hard to turn the words into action, thanks to stiff resistance from the East Asian country and it has left Trump aghast, so much so that he has fumed at his aides privately even as he praised the negotiations in public, The Washington Times reported. North Korea committed to work towards denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in return for security guarantees from the United States. Chairman Kim told not only President Trump, but (South Korean) President Moon that he was prepared to denuclearize. "We don't need any more information". In the absence of reliable public information from Pyongyang, the Seoul-based bank is widely considered the region's most knowledgeable source on the economic status of its northern neighbor - and bank leaders say the North's nuclear ambitions and the worldwide penalties that have resulted have done a number on that economic well-being. In 2017, the UN Security Council approved imposing three sets of restrictions on Pyongyang in response to its missile and nuclear tests. Moscow and Beijing said they need additional time to investigate the USA allegations and put a six-month "hold" on the US request. "Some of our friends have decided they want to do away with the rules", she said.

Pompeo also called on United Nations members to crack down on other forms of sanctions evasion, "including the smuggling of coal by sea, smuggling by overland borders and the presence of North Korean guest workers in certain countries". Haley asked. "They claim they need more information".
