New York, May 31: The United States and China on Tuesday had a discussion that they should push for further United Nations Security Council action on North Korea. US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said that they will come up with a certain decision by this week.
Haley informed that Washington considers that China is being productive as it is using its networks to stop North Korea from carrying out missile launches. "At this point I do believe, and I think the administration believes, that China is doing back-channel networking with North Korea in way that is getting them to try to stop its nuclear testing, so we believe that they are being productive, we do think that they are trying to counter what is happening now”, she added.
Harley even added saying that they will try to keep the pressure on China and will be working with Beijing towards the goal of decreasing tensions in the region.
The Security Council initially forced endorses on Pyongyang in 2006 over its ballistic missile and nuclear programs and has tightened up the measures in light of five nuclear tests and two long-range missile launches. North Korea is devastating a 6th atomic test.
Earlier on April 28, Pyongyang launched another ballistic missile an hour after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told UN Security Council, the 15-member body needed to act before North Korea does.
The United States proposed to China that the Security Council strengthen sanctions on North Korea over its frequent ballistic missile launches. Customarily, the United States and China have arranged new authorizes before including the other 13 council members.
After that Pyongyang launched several ballistic missiles, including the recent short-range ballistic missile that landed in the sea off its east coast on Monday.
Criticizing continues ballistic missile tests, Haley said, "Nothing is changing North Korea's actions”. Searching for the solution she said "OK, what are we going to do if this is going to happen every other day? How should we respond in a way that actually stops these things or slow it down?"
Haley said “the United States believes China is doing back-channel networking with North Korea in a way that's getting them to try and stop the nuclear testing. So we believe that they are being productive".
