Russia hits back at US criticism over N. Korea
    2017-August-2  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

RUSSIA said Monday the United States and other countries were trying “to shift responsibility for the situation to Russia and China” following the most recent missile test by North Korea.

“We view as groundless attempts undertaken by the U.S. and a number of other countries to shift responsibility to Russia and China, almost blaming Moscow and Beijing for indulging the missile and nuclear ambitions of the DPRK (North Korea),” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

North Korea said Saturday it had conducted another successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile that proved its ability to strike the U.S. mainland, drawing a sharp warning from U.S. President Donald Trump.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe spoke with Trump on Monday and agreed on the need for more action on North Korea just hours after the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations said Washington is “done talking about North Korea.”

Trump tweeted Saturday after the missile test that he was “very disappointed” in China and that Beijing profits from U.S. trade but had done “nothing” for the United States with regards to North Korea.

China’s Foreign Ministry, in a statement responding to Trump’s earlier tweets, said the North Korean nuclear issue did not arise because of China and that everyone needed to work together to seek a resolution.

At the United Nations in New York, China’s U.N. ambassador said Monday it is primarily up to the United States and North Korea, not Beijing, to reduce tensions and work toward resuming talks to end Pyongyang’s nuclear weapon and missile programs.

“China-U.S. relations are the world’s most important bilateral relations and Trump certainly knows this. Yet he still chooses to unfairly blame China for two unrelated issues,” a Xinhua commentary said Monday.

“As a neighbor of the DPRK, China knows well it has a lot to lose if the Korean Peninsula slides further away from denuclearization, so it has been making strenuous efforts, including organizing the Six-Party Talks, to maintain the fragile calm on the peninsula and work toward an early solution to the problem.

“It is absurd to suggest that China could repay the so-called U.S. generosity of allowing a huge trade deficit by “easily resolving” the Korea nuclear issue, as the two issues are in completely different domains and can not be considered tradeoffs for each other,” the commentary said.
