Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping pledge to deal with North Korea

Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, the Presidents of Russia and China, respectively, have met during the BRICS summit in Xiamen and pledged to hold firm to the so-called ‘double-freeze’ plan to ease tensions in Korea which was first drafted in May of this year during a series of bilateral meetings between Russian and Chinese officials from the public and private sectors in Moscow.

A report from Xinhua states,

“The two leaders agreed to stick to the goal of denuclearise on the Korean Peninsula and keep close communication and coordination to deal with the new situation”.

Earlier the Foreign Ministries of Russia and China released statements affirming a joint commitment to de-escalation on the Korean peninsula.

The statement from Russia read as follows,

“We express our deep concern at test of a “thermonuclear explosive device for an intercontinental ballistic missile” announced by the DPRK on September 3.

This yet another example of Pyongyang’s outright disregard of the demands of respective UN Security Council resolutions and international law deserves absolute condemnation.

We cannot but regret the fact the DPRK leadership is creating grave threats to peace and security on the Korean Peninsular and the whole region by its actions, which are aimed at undermining the global non-proliferation regime. The continuation of this line is fraught with grave consequences for the DPRK itself.

Under the unfolding conditions it is essential to keep calm and to restrain from any acts, which may lead to further escalation of tensions.

We urge all interested parties to promptly return to dialogue and negotiations, the only possible way for a comprehensive settlement of the Korean Peninsula problems, including the nuclear problem. We confirm our readiness to joint efforts in this direction, including in the context of implementing the Russia-China roadmap”.

The statement from the Chinese Foreign Ministry similarly stated,

“Today, North Korea, ignoring the general disagreement of the international community, conducted yet another nuclear test. The Chinese government expresses its protest and strongly condemns these actions”.

China further pledged to work with Russia to find a solution to reduce tensions while President Xi urged calm from all sides.

Kim,

Point your missiles at Israel. They rule america. Leave Guam alone. Just don’t launch. The Jews will back down.

Guam’s fine. It was just part of the pissing contest, as was Japan (although launching over Japan was close to pissing in the wind. A very bad idea). NK want Washington, just like Beijin and Moscow. All NK are doing is proving their growing reach.

I think Xi should invite tRump and Kim to Beijing for a tete a tete 🙂

I don’t think Russia will be inviting any Americans around, especially full of hot air ones, for a while.

The two leaders must to undestand that Nord Korea must to be full nuclearized , Japan and Sud Korea are full of american nuclear bombs and rockets ! I should like also present to Kim Yung about a dozen battery of S 400. This will make a real balance in the area. Nord Korea is working for his survival , are about 60 years than they live in peace , instead America is always in war !!!

America has never been in a war in it’s life (that’s kind of the problem). The only wars they’ve been ‘involved’ in are everybody elses (always as support and sometimes as instigators). They send ‘x’ number of troops, but usually get the locals to fight while they bomb, destabilise and sometimes over throw the establishment. Veitnam proved their undoing and Cuba was about the same. They are trying with Venizuela, but like ‘Nam’ the media (namely alt media) will decide that one as it has decided Syria. The Yanks wouldn’t stand a chance against a hardened and experienced army.

The US must accept the Russia-China demand to cease joint maneuvers with South Korea along with an end to missile tests in order for negotiations to begin
