Summit in Pyongyang: China's Xi Says World Hopes North Korea-U.S. Talks Can Succeed

Recommended Posts

The world hopes North Korea and the United States can talk to each other and for those talks to be successful, Chinese President Xi Jinping told North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Thursday, praising Pyongyang’s efforts toward denuclearization. Xi is visiting China’s reclusive neighbor North Korea, seeking to bolster a longtime ally hit by U.N. sanctions over its nuclear and missile programs, a week before Xi and U.S. President Donald Trump meet amid a bitter trade dispute. Xi, whose entourage includes the head of China’s state economic planner, will be in North Korea for two days, the first Chinese leader to visit in 14 years, and could bring fresh support measures for its floundering, sanctions-bound economy. Kim Jong Un and his wife, Ri Sol Ju, greeted Xi at the airport, Chinese state TV said. Kim’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, and officials who played prominent roles in recent nuclear talks with the United States were also on hand. Xi “positively appraised” North Korea’s efforts to safeguard peace and stability on the peninsula and promote denuclearization, state television said. “The situation on the Korean peninsula concerns regional peace and stability,” the report paraphrased Xi as telling Kim at their formal meeting, “The international community hopes that North Korea and the United States can talk and for the talks to get results.” - he added.

... about close tights between "best allies" ...


1) China bled for North Korea, Mao's son died fighting there
2) Only China could provide that nuclear umbrella to NK, they have their own now
3) Security Council? No problem. China takes care of the Veto power ...

Conspicuous Messaging – Kim Jong Un Receives Letter of “excellent content” From President Trump

... President Trump no longer has to worry about missiles from the military within North Korea that is controlled by Beijing.   Kim no longer needs to worry about missiles being fired from his regime. Chairman Xi has taken ownership of all hostile military action from inside the DPRK.

Remember, generally speaking President trump held two connected objectives: (1) removing the threat posed by North Korea by severing the ability of Beijing to use the proxy province as a weapon (Kim hostage); and (2) deconstructing the growing economic influence of China.

President Trump now moves to phase two of the plan.

Chairman Xi Jinping (China) and President Moon Jae-in are scheduled for a G20 meeting.  This is the magnanimous panda meeting that was set up first by Beijing.  Xi will play the role of magnanimous panda in denuclearizing the DPRK and using Moon Jae-in as the panda optic of peace with Chairman Kim Jong-un.

Chairman Xi will  then meet with President Trump for ‘expanded’ talks at the G20.  This meeting was set up after the magnanimous panda play was scheduled.  Here, Chairman Xi will offer President Trump peace and a denuclearized DPRK (essentially Beijing taking their missile technology back) in exchange for trade concessions.

President Trump is scheduled to travel to South Korea for a meeting with Moon Jae-in after the G20 (that’s new today).

From Xi’s position, Moon Jae-in will fill in the details of the denuclearized DPRK to President Trump.  However, what Chairman Xi is about to discover is that Trump doesn’t care about cunning magnanimous panda, and there will be no concessions (except possibly a return to the original commitment by Vice-Chairman Liu He).

The Trump letter to Kim is likely saying congratulations on the threat removal; and now we both know you are less captive… with some new possibilities outlined therein.
