North Korea provocations hurt China-South Korea ties

North Korea provocations hurt China-South Korea ties

The timing and scope of the USA action will depend heavily on how China responds to pressure for tougher steps against North Korea when US and Chinese officials meet for a high-level economic dialogue in Washington on Wednesday, the administration sources told Reuters. In Australia, the USA and South Korea, roughly three-quarters or more say they have unfavorable views.

A magnitude 5.9 natural disaster off North Korea early Thursday jolted watchers of the country's weapons development but experts say it was not caused by a nuclear test.

But a crackdown against North Korean activity is bringing such practices under scrutiny, according to the report.

These actions from Congress have had limited success in subduing North Korea.

"A small misjudgment or error can immediately lead to the beginning of a nuclear war, which will inevitably lead to another world war", it said. In both countries, large majorities expect this would happen: 91% of South Koreans expect US assistance in the event of a military conflict with North Korea, and 82% of Japanese say the same. Pyongyang is not going to "tolerate the reckless sanctions blackmail of the United States and other hostile forces", North Korea's Foreign Ministry spokesman said in a statement published by the Rodong Sinmun official newspaper on Saturday.

"North Korean traders in China are very unhappy with the ICBM missile launch", one Chinese trading partner told RFA.
