US President Donald Trump might have intended to pressure China into doing more on North Korea by sending out a tweet that basically accuses China of potentially violating UN resolutions. Instead, his tweet, which lacked substantiated evidence, was met with mockery and criticism in China on Friday.

Chinese experts called Trump's attempt to use Twitter to conduct negotiations for one of the world's trickiest diplomatic issues "absurd" and urged the US president to get his facts straight in handling such an important issue. Nor should he rely on unsubstantiated media reports.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs also on Friday dismissed media reports that suggested Chinese vessels were supplying oil to North Korea as inaccurate, saying the vessels in question have not returned to Chinese ports since August.

In a tweet on Thursday, Trump accused China of allowing oil supply to North Korea and warned that there will not be any peaceful resolution if China continues to do so.

 "Caught RED HANDED - very disappointed that China is allowing oil to go into North Korea. There will never be a friendly solution to the North Korea problem if this continues to happen!" Trump wrote in the tweet.

In an interview with the New York Times later on Thursday, Trump suggested that he had received the information by watching the news that morning.

"I hate to say, it was reported this morning, and it was reported on Fox [News Chanel]. Oil is going into North Korea," Trump said in the interview, according to a transcript.

"I don't know what's more absurd: That we are seeing the president of the world's most powerful country conducting diplomatic negotiations on Twitter or that we know the US president is getting information from fake news reports instead of the most powerful intelligence apparatus in the world under his control," Lü Chao, an expert on North Korea at the Liaoning Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times on Friday.

Lü said that Trump was referring to recent media reports that suggested Chinese vessels had been transferring oil to North Korean ships. 

 "It's very counterproductive for foreign media to make such false connections and irresponsible for Trump to spread them," Lü said.
Responding to Trump's tweet, Hua Chunying, spokeswoman for China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said on Friday that China has investigated recent media reports about a Chinese vessel allegedly transferring oil to a North Korean vessel and found that the vessel has not docked at any Chinese port since August and that "the reported situation does not conform with fact."

"The Chinese side has always fully and strictly implemented the Security Council's resolutions and fulfilled its international obligations and will never allow any Chinese citizen or companies to engage in actions that violate the Security Council's resolutions," Hua said at a regular press briefing in Beijing.

Mei Xinyu, research fellow with the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation, said that Trump is attempting to "force" China into helping the US address the North Korea nuclear issue.

"But what Trump ignored is the fact that China does not need any push or pressure from the US or any other country to solve the North Korea nuclear issues because this is an issue that could have direct and huge impact on China," Mei told the Global Times.

Mei also noted that Trump's apparent intention to somehow link China-US bilateral trade with the North Korean nuclear issue is "absurd and truly laughable."

"Those two issues are already complicated enough on their own and Trump wants to put them together and address them together? I really don't know what to say except that it's a really stupid decision," said Mei, who also advises Chinese trade officials.

So China wants to claim to adhere to UN resolutions, when it publicly refuses to recognise international law and international court rulings. Yea not buying it
Yes russia is doing the same thing.

Jokes about fatty Kim aside the real shocking part would be the human trafficking that occurs when an entire country is your own personal penal colony. I'm sure Kim is a pedo and exploiter with few equals in the world. If those trafficking networks and pleasure squads were infiltrated and accurately described it would be another nail in his coffin.

The guy is just another in a long line of despotic, demi god dirtbags.
This is why I love the doctrine of killing the dirtbag in person instead of blowing up half the world. Assassination never troubles these people, just us. That is projected fear on the part of our butter won't melt in the mouth leaders. They should be in the line of fire?
Oh, no, never! They're too big and important. Wouldn't want that practice to set a president.
Now excuse, Putin's heading for his limmo, and I need both hands free... :twisted:

He has to do it before the Olympics because if he shot one over the games his fat ass would be toast. Its time to pull his card. Launch a massive strike, one that has Russia and China say " DAAAMMM!!!!". One that makes them well aware to not dare mess with us. That is the only reason they are now, they think we are too weak politically here at home and spineless to hit them hard enough when it matters.
