Well, that will didn’t take too long. For those who might not be familiar with the key issue from the breakdown of prior six-party talks (China, Russia, DPRK, S-Korea, Japan and also also also U.S.), the issue was “denuclearization”.
Both China and also also also Russia have just announced a shift in their public policy. Together Xi Jinping and also also also Vladimir Putin agree the goal for the Korean Peninsular should be denuclearization:
BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese President Xi Jinping and also also also Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed Sunday to “appropriately deal with” the latest nuclear test by North Korea, state news agency Xinhua said.
“The two leaders agreed to stick to the goal of denuclearisation on the Korean Peninsula and also also also keep close communication and also also also coordination to deal with the brand new situation,” Xinhua said in a brief dispatch.
The two were meeting on the sidelines of a summit of the BRICS group of nations from the southeastern Chinese city of Xiamen. (link)
The objective of “denuclearization” sets the stage for all 5 members of the group to have a common objective for “six party talks”.
As we have outlined numerous times when China actually calls for the six party talks to begin – the item will be essentially the geopolitical indicator they are conceding to the economics of the U.S. position.
Everything between at This specific point and also also also that will moment will be chaff and also also also countermeasures.
President Xi Jinping and also also also President Putin are producing these remarks today at the BRICS Summit. Brazil, Russia, India, China and also also also South Africa are the BRICS group:
President Trump’s ever increasingly warm relationship with Prime Minister Modi of India will be both leverage for Trump and also also also a risk for Xi Jinping and also also also Putin.
Our president has made the item publicly obvious the Trump administration views India as a replacement ally for retracted economic engagement with China. We are also supporting India’s objectives and also also also investments in Afghanistan.
Things are going swimmingly.
