Analysts: China Likely to Support New Sanctions Against N. Korea


I hope China's hand will not be called on this but the way the Kim Family Regime is acting I am afraid we are going to see if things play out the way the analysts assert.

Analysts: China Likely to Support New Sanctions Against N. Korea

WASHINGTON — China is under pressure from the international community to support new sanctions against North Korea if Pyongyang follows through on its threat to carry out its third nuclear test.

Following North Korea's long-range rocket launch in December, China backed a new U.N. resolution (2087) that strengthened existing sanctions aimed at punishing Pyongyang for its nuclear weapons program.

The resolution, in part, urges U.N. members to monitor the activity of North Korean financial organizations within their countries.  It also calls for travel bans on people suspected of involvement with the North's nuclear program.

So how will China react if North Korea carries out another nuclear test?  The U.N. Security Council, of which China is a permanent member, is expected to respond quickly, possibly with new economic sanctions that expand asset freezes and travel bans on North Korean entities.
