Trump acting as a spokesman for China’s non-interference policy

U.S. President Donald Trump seems acting as a spokesman for China’s long-term non-interference foreign policy that even in the case of North Korea, Beijing refrains from exercising its power and influence to alter another sovereign state’s foreign policy forcefully.

Who else can help China better to make all other Third World countries believe that Beijing will respect a relatively weaker nation’s independency? So, they will say, “thank you, President Trump.”

On June 20, Trump tweeted: “… it has not worked out. At least I know China tried.” Reuters’ interpretation is that “Chinese efforts to persuade North Korea to rein in its nuclear program have failed, President Donald Trump said on Tuesday…”

The New York Times editorial on July 4 states that “Mr. Trump is learning he can’t rely on China alone. Eventually the United States will have to negotiate directly.”

On July 6, “President Trump criticized China this morning for undermining international efforts to isolate North Korea …” Although China suspended imports of coal from North Korea as part of its pressure on Pyongyang, “…’Trade between China and North Korea grew almost 40 percent in the first quarter. So much for China working with us — but we had to give it a try!’ the US President said in a tweet.”

Pyongyang’s non-stop tests of launching long range missiles are sensible efforts to solidify its bargaining power when the U.S. and Japan finally accept the reality that negotiation is the only option available to them. Without such a military capability, Kim Jong-un could not get a good deal for North Korea, or perhaps, a good deal for the whole Korea.

The opinions expressed are those of the author, and not necessarily those of China Daily Mail.
