"Q: US President Donald Trump said in an interview that how much the DPRK's leader desires peace would be a deciding factor in easing tensions between it and the US. The US wants peace and hopes Kim Jong Un also wants peace. Trump said that it would be 'the end determination.' What is China's comment?
A: We have noted that this statement by President Trump has already be extensively covered by many news media since yesterday. To peacefully achieve denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and maintain peace and stability on the Peninsula through dialogue and consultation is the only viable way out of the Peninsula nuclear issue. It also represents the consistent stance of the Chinese government. Just like what I said here yesterday, in our contacts with major parties to the Peninsula nuclear issue, they all expressed that the last thing they want is conflict and war. What the majority of the international community hope to see is also peace. We hope that all relevant parties can forge consensus and make concrete efforts under this principle and in this direction.

Q: It is reported that Russia has blocked a proposed UN Security Council press statement that would have condemned the DPRK's latest missile launch test. What is your comment?
A: The UN Security Council has its rules of procedure and ways of addressing matters, including informal consultation which is in fact a closed-door meeting. What I have learnt is that the Security Council members are debating whether to issue a press statement with regard to the latest developments on the Peninsula. One thing for sure is that China believes that the Security Council members upholding unity and speaking in one voice is of paramount importance for the properly settlement of the Peninsula-related issues by the Security Council."

Negative. PRC is playing the role of the objective mediator, but it is also the ally of DPRK. This is absolutely clear, as demonstrated by history and also PRC's insistence that USA agree to suspension-for-suspension, which PRC indicates is the "only way" and "only path." Resolution of the dispute through dialogue and negotiation is acceptable to PRC and RF. Military force is not, nor is any destabilization of DPRK. Where, PRC contributing significantly to sanctions harmful to DPRK would produce instability.

The typical lip service from the Chinese. Did you notice how their bombers went on alert the same time the Carl Vinson and the Reagan truly started heading their way? They need to make dam sure all our U.S. Naval ship defensive systems are working and fully loaded for this adventure. No more stupid USS Stark incidences where Aegis was turned off for maintenance because of some idiot Captain.

If Trump really ordered the Carl Vinson to NK and the Joint Chief of the Navy did not make the call to the Admiral of the Vinson strike group he needs to be fired. How the hell could the Captain of the carrier not see the news for the last three weeks and not call back to the Pentagon, to find out wtf his true orders were lol?
