  • TTCT – 8h30 sáng thứ ba 26-2, ông Kim Jong Un rời ga Đồng Đăng lên xe trực chỉ Hà Nội. Trước đó, vào nửa đêm (giờ Việt Nam), ông Donald Trump từ chiếc Air Force One đăng dòng tweet: “Trên đường tới Việt Nam cho cuộc gặp của tôi với Kim Jong Un. Hướng tới một thượng đỉnh rất kết quả”. Sân khấu sáng đèn rực chiếu lên hai ông này. Tuy nhiên, trong cánh gà còn những ai nữa?

    Một hội nghị thượng đỉnh luôn là màn phô diễn quan hệ với công chúng (PR), ông Kim và ông Trump thừa biết cách thu hút sự chú ý, nhất là khi ông Trump nguyên là nhà sản xuất kiêm “chủ sô” của chương trình truyền hình thực tế nổi tiếng The Apprentice, còn ông Kim thì hưởng lợi thế “hữu xạ tự nhiên hương” nhờ chính bức màn bí ẩn bao quanh ông, gia đình dòng họ ông, và đất nước ông.

    al jazeera Aug. 7, 2017

    Punishing measures are in ‘violent violation’ of North’s sovereignty, Pyongyang says, as it rejects offers of talks.

    North Korea has come out fighting following fresh UN Security Council sanctions on Pyongyang and after the United States and South Korea celebrated the punishing measures.

    North Korea on Monday condemned the sanctions imposed in response to its weapons programmes, saying it would not negotiate over nuclear arms while threatened by the US.

    The sanctions passed at the weekend were a “violent violation of our sovereignty”, Pyongyang said in a statement carried by its official Korean Central News Agency, adding it would take “righteous action” in return.

    China backs UN sanctions on North Korea as ASEAN summit held

    “We will not put our self-defensive nuclear deterrent on the negotiating table” while it faced threats from Washington, it said, “and will never take a single step back from strengthening our nuclear might”.

    The UN Security Council unanimously adopted on Saturday a US-led resolution, which bans mineral and seafood exports from North Korea worth more than $1bn.

    The triggering event late July, North Korea’s latest test of ballistic missiles, had the international community and experts concerned. Along with the North Korean government, they say the missiles can reach different parts of the US.

    China: US, North Korea should ease tensions themselves

    Aug. 1, 2017 al jazeera

    Beijing’s efforts to reduce North Korea tensions will not yield practical results, says China’s UN envoy.

    China’s UN envoy has said it is primarily up to the United States and North Korea, not Beijing, to reduce tensions and work towards resuming talks to end Pyongyang’s nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programmes.

    Liu Jieyi’s remark came on Monday after US President Donald Trump said on Saturday he was “very disappointed” China had done “nothing” for Washington with regards to North Korea who a day earlier conducted its second test this month of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

    Jieyi said “[the US and North Korea] hold the primary responsibility to keep things moving, to start moving in the right direction, not China”.

    “No matter how capable China is, China’s efforts will not yield practical results because it depends on the two principal parties,” Liu said, speaking at a news conference marking the end of Beijing’s presidency of the UN Security Council in July.

    U.S President Trump took a more conciliatory tone at a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday, but he has expressed some impatience that China, with its close economic and diplomatic ties to Pyongyang, is not doing enough to rein in North Korea.

    Al Jareeza

    US secretary of state travels to Beijing after saying pre-emptive military action against North Korea may be necessary.

    Rex Tillerson has arrived in Beijing for his first face-to-face talks with Chinese leaders expected to focus on North Korea’s nuclear programme.

    The US secretary of state’s visit on Saturday followed his remarks the previous day in South Korea where he cautioned that pre-emptive military action against North Korea might be necessary.

    He said US military action against North Korea is an “option on the table”, and warned the country to end its missile and nuclear programmes.

    “The policy of strategic patience has ended,” Tillerson said during his joint press conference with his South Korean counterpart, Yun Byung-se, on Friday. Tiếp tục đọc “Rex Tillerson in China to discuss North Korea”

    US deploys missile defence system to South Korea

    Al Jazeera

    China is warning it will take measures against a US missile defence system deployed in South Korea, with the stated objective of countering threats from North Korea.

    The equipment needed to set up Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence system (THAAD), a missile defence system, have arrived in South Korea, according to American and South Korean defence forces.

    The deployment announcement was made on Tuesday, a day after North Korea test-launched four ballistic missiles into the sea near Japan.

    Admiral Harry Harris, head of the US Pacific Command, said in the statement that “continued provocative actions by North Korea, to include yesterday’s launch of multiple missiles, only confirm the prudence of our alliance decision last year to deploy THAAD to South Korea”.

    30 dead in fighting in Myanmar town near China border

    YANGON: At least 30 people were killed on Monday (Mar 6)  in a day of intense fighting in a town on Myanmar’s border with China, authorities said, after rebels dressed in police uniforms launched a surprise raid.

    Artillery and small arms fire continued throughout the day in Laukkai, a main town in the Kokang region of the northeastern state of Shan.

    The clashes are some of the worst to break out in the Chinese-speaking Kokang region since fighting in 2015 left scores dead and forced tens of thousands to flee across the border into China.

    Myanmar is already torn by various ethnic insurgencies. But the Kokang conflict has raised tensions with its giant neighbour.

    Aung San Suu Kyi’s government is desperate to end the decades-long borderland conflicts, but intensifying fighting threatens peace efforts. Tiếp tục đọc “30 dead in fighting in Myanmar town near China border”
