Senator believes USA should abandon efforts to infringe on North Korea's sovereignty

Chinese academics prod Beijing to consider

China will implement all United Nations Security Council resolutions, "no more, no less", Cui Tiankai, China's ambassador to the US, told reporters at a briefing in Washington when asked if China would cut oil shipments.

"They should refrain from issuing more threats".

"Efforts to undermine Sino-U.S. trade, or even slapping sanctions on China, I think would be off-target", the Chinese state news agency Xinhua quoted Cui as saying on Friday at a Chinese National Day reception. "They should do more to find effective ways to resume dialogue and negotiation", he said.

In an interview with Tasnim, Iran's former ambassador to Beijing Mahdi Safari said China is strongly opposed to the escalation of tensions between the U.S. and North Korea.

The emphasis on curbing North Korea's missile and nuclear capabilities should not come at the expense of pushing for a peaceful and diplomatic resolution, ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said after North Korea fired a missile that flew over Japan's northern Hokkaido island far out into the Pacific Ocean.

"Oil exports to North Korea will drop by almost 40 per cent, a huge blow to its energy supply", Lu said, reacting to the new round of sanctions by the United Nations following North Korea's hydrogen bomb test.

A spokesperson for the Messina Touring Group said the Scottrade Center gig was nixed after consulting with authorities in St. Judge Wilson, in his 30-page ruling, said he was unconvinced by the suggestion that Stockley had planted the gun.

Trump tweeted earlier this month that the United States was considering halting trade with countries doing business with North Korea.

"Our final goal is to establish the equilibrium of real force with the U.S. and make the USA rulers dare not talk about military option for the DPRK", Kim said as cited by state news agency KCNA.

North Korea has threatened to sink Japan and reduce the USA to "ashes and darkness" for leading the latest UN Security Council sanctions imposed on the country.

However, North Korea warned Washington on Monday against a new round of sanctions and said its retaliatory measures "will cause the United States the greatest pain and suffering it had ever gone through in its entire history".

North Korea's Pongwha chemical factory receives more than 500,000 tons of crude from China annually, according to South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper. "Without implementing this, we also will consider it as a non-compliance with the resolution".
