US President Donald Trump tweeted about China’s effort on North Korea. In his Tweet the President said,
“While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out. At least I know China tried,”.
Trump has held high hopes for greater cooperation from China to exert influence over North Korea, leaning heavily on Chinese President Xi Jinping for his assistance.
It was unclear whether his remark represented a significant shift in his thinking in the U.S. struggle to stop North Korea’s nuclear program and its test launching of missiles or a change in U.S. policy toward China.
The tweet from the President came just hours before the United States and China were set to meet in Washington to talk about North Korea.
The Chinese government responded with a statement saying that, China had made “unremitting efforts” to resolve tensions on the Korean peninsula, and that it had “always played and important and constructive role”.
There are unconfirmed reports from the US that says U.S. spy satellites had detected movements recently at North Korea’s nuclear test site near a tunnel entrance.
It is believed that the North Korean regime is all set to conduct a sixth nuclear test at any time when there is an order from leadership.
