North Korea: Trump Speech At the UN like ‘dog barking’ – Ri Yong Ho, Foreign Minister of North Korea responded to President Donald Trump’s threat to the UN speech, “If Trump thinks he can frighten North Korea with a dog’s voice, it’s a dog dream”, interrupted during his visit to the United States the United Nations general assembly, Ri said to reporters outside his hotel in New York, quoted by CNN.
At the same time, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was also in New York, but denied the possibility of a meeting between North Korea and the United States. Tillerson said in front of reporters that he was not convinced that he could hold discussions with North Korea, because we had no years how to communicate and conduct them later.
Tillerson claims that the sanctions imposed for northern Korea are beginning to show results. This is evident from North Korea’s lack of fuel.
But analysts argue that fuel shortages can not be a benchmark due to sanctions being applied, as most North Koreans do not own cars.
Trump is scheduled to meet with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae In on Thursday 23 September 2017.
Possible agenda of the meeting will discuss South Korea’s decision to send a $ 8 million aid package to North Korea, divided into medical care, nursery and nutrition products for children and pregnant women through the $ 4.5 million world food program and medicinal and nutritional products assistance through UNICEF worth $ 3.5 million. The move is seen to be contrary to US and Japanese appeals calling for increased economic and diplomatic pressures.
On a phone call Monday, Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping held talks on the north Korean situation, reported by the White House. Accounting for about 90% of North Korea’s imports, Beijing is seen by many as the key to any North Korea strategy.
