FT: Totally' possible for USA to address North Korea threat alone

Paeksol Trading Corp. was sanctioned for involvement in trading in North Korean coal and minerals, a key source of hard currency for Pyongyang, and the 11 individuals were blacklisted for representing trading firms and banks that have already been sanctioned for their links to weapons proliferation.

"When I asked him if North Korea will send athletes to Pyeongchang, he said they will be here", Choi said according to news agency Yonhap. Tensions on the peninsula are now high, with South Korea saying last week that the North was ready to carry out a new nuclear test. "And China has great influence over North Korea".

The comments, in an interview published on Sunday by the Financial Times, appeared created to pressure Chinese President Xi Jinping ahead of his visit to Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida this week.

Aside from political matters and the rivalry, South Korea will have to come out on top in North Korea if they want to go to the World Cup. The committee also passed a bill calling for redesignation of North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism and a resolution denouncing its intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) program.

It also assigns the executive authority to regard the purchasing or acquisition of North Korean food, farming, fishing, and textile products or the provision of telephone, telegraph, and other communications services to North Korea as subject to sanctions.

The official said it was not immediately known whether the recommendations put together by Trump's National Security Council had yet made their way to the president.

But Haley emphasized that at the Florida meeting "the most important conversation will be how we're going to be dealing with the nonproliferation of North Korea".

The already strained relationship between the northern and southern parts of the Korean peninsula has grown more tense lately as Seoul engages in its annual joint military exercises with the USA, which has prompted many threats from Pyongyang and its supreme leader, Kim Jong-un.

"Trump said it would be mutually beneficial for China to help stop North Korea".
