European Union weighs new North Korea sanctions after missile test

Malita Javier | 18 Julio, 2017, 16:17

A North Korean defector who introduced life in her home country to South Korean audiences via local entertainment shows was featured in an online video Sunday released by the regime's propaganda website, comparing life in the South to "hell".

The South's Defence Ministry proposed a meeting to be held on Friday at the border truce village of Panmunjom, while the Red Cross offered to hold talks on Aug 1 at the same venue.

They would also come roughly two weeks after North Korea conducted its latest missile test this year, launching an intercontinental ballistic missile that landed in the Sea of Japan.

The election in May of Mr. Moon, a liberal human-rights lawyer, ended decades of conservative dominance in South Korea. North Korea has denied responsibility.

The government is likely North Korea's largest user of fuel products, but most gasoline and diesel bought by ordinary citizens comes from private dealers and smugglers, experts say.

"We will cut the money off to North Korea until they behave properly", said U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

According to Cho, proposals made to North Korea will include restoring communication hotlines, cut by North Korea a year ago after its most recent nuclear test triggered economic sanctions, and restarting a Red Cross humanitarian project to reunite families separated by the Korean War. Conversely, threats by the Trump administration to renegotiate the South Korea-US FTA have generated fears in Seoul over American protectionism.

"The message to North Korea should be, if you're here, we're here, and we're going to give these countries and these banks and companies a choice - continue to do business in the U.S. dollar or work with North Korea", he said.

China has repeatedly said it is fully enforcing United Nations sanctions on nuclear-armed North Korea and there is nothing wrong with what it terms "normal" trade with Pyongyang, referring to areas not covered by sanctions.

Trade between China and North Korea has declined in both 2015 and 2016, a senior government-backed academic said in a front-page comment in the overseas edition of the official People's Daily on Wednesday.

It's a tough task for the man who made headlines for helping to free American Otto Warmbier from North Korean detention last month.

The South Korean Red Cross suggested talks be held on August 1, with possible reunions over the Korean thanksgiving Chuseok holiday, which falls in October this year.

China's trade with isolated North Korea rose more than 10 percent in the January-June period from a year earlier, a Chinese official said on Thursday, amid pressure from the United States for Beijing to pressurize its troublesome neighbor.

When Moon visited Washington after being elected president, he and Trump said they were open to renewed dialogue with North Korea but only under circumstances that would lead to Pyongyang giving up its weapons programs. The Chinese know the United States actually could do a great deal by offering bilateral talks with North Korea and suggesting a peace treaty to bring the Korean War to an end once and for all which is the real goal of North Korea.

The last such reunions were held in October 2015 during the government of Moon's predecessor under a futile push for reconciliation following a sharp increase in tension over border incidents involving a landmine blast and artillery fire.

It added that Russian Federation was bound by its constitution as well as its worldwide commitments to provide such guarantees. Tuesday's European Union comment follows the ruling of the Russian Supreme Court, which rejected an appeal against the ban.

"I deeply agree with President Moon's direction for the future relations of the two Koreas", said Archbishop Hyginus Kim Hee-joong of Gwangju, conference president. "The US has the stronger hand because of the threat of North Korea, so they are playing a game". Three defectors who returned to North Korea past year claimed they were treated as "second-class citizens" in the South, but again, their statements were made on North Korean television and should definitely be weighed in light of that fact.
