After threatening, Donald Trump issued sanctions for North Korea – On Thursday, September 21, 2017, Trump announced the addition of sanctions against North Korea and praised China’s move to restrict financial transactions with North Korea, according to CNN.
Chinese leader Xi Jinping, who was not present this week in New York, called on Chinese financial institutions to stop dealing with North Korea, Trump said to its allies in talks between South Korea and Japan. But Chinese state media have not yet reported the decision, and the White House has refused to disclose the source of the information.
If this happens, then this move will be a major advance in US efforts to sever support for the North Korea state, as a punishment for nuclear provocation repeatedly done by North Korea. Trump put pressure on China to stop financial support and trade with North Korea. It is said by Trump, “It is unacceptable that others financially support this criminal rogue regime”, at the start of negotiations held at a hotel in New York.
US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said Thursday that “US sanctions against financial institutions that do business with North Korea are not specifically targeted to China”.
“This action is aimed at everyone, that his steps are not directed specifically to China,” Mnuchin said
Trump’s order is to target individuals who provide goods, services or technology to North Korea, banning ships and aircraft that have visited North Korea to enter the United States for 180 days.
At the end of the event, between the photo sessions, Trump was asked about whether dialogue options with northern korea were possible, Trump said: “Why not?”. The statement indicates the opening of dialogue room with northern korea. Although previously mentioned by Donald Trump that, talking is not the answer.
The United Nations Security Council has approved and imposed some of the latest sanctions on North Korea, but this has not stopped North Korean leaders, Kim Jong Un from conducting ballistic missile tests.
