China’s Top Bank Orders Others To Cut Business Ties With North Korea

Did Trump's tough talk against China work?

Quote:
China’s central bank has reportedly ordered the country’s other banks to stop conducting business with North Korea.

The People’s Bank of China has instructed banks to fully implement United Nations sanctions, four sources familiar with the situation told Reuters.

The United Nations Security Council recently approved a new sanctions resolution to punish the rogue North Korean regime for its earlier test of a suspected staged thermonuclear weapon, which the North intends to mount on its intercontinental ballistic missile.

China will comply with the UN sanctions.


Quote:
China’s Ministry of Commerce said in a statement on Sept. 28 that it was giving North Korean businesses and individuals in China, as well as joint ventures between Chinese and North Korean companies, 120 days to close. The countdown started Sept. 11, the date the United Nations Security Council imposed a tough new round of sanctions against Pyongyang.

I think China is trying to distance itself from an increasingly outlaw state. They have serious economic and social woes of their own without Rocket Man and the Nork All-stars creating even more problems for them.

Quote:
North Korea is no longer pursuing nuclear capability; it is a nuclear-armed state. It has maybe 60 nuclear bombs already, ICBMs to put US mainland cities within range and the technology to miniaturise nuclear warheads for increased range. Premeditated military strikes by either side are unlikely triggers to a nuclear exchange. Instead, the fuse of an unwanted nuclear war could be lit by a fatal miscalculation. China has concluded that North Korea is here to stay as the world’s ninth nuclear-armed state. Beijing’s strategy is to absorb US pressure to rein in Pyongyang by appearing to be trying hard to coerce it into denuclearisation, without really taking any meaningful steps to do so.

Just goes to show that even China's patience has its limits.

Only up to a point
  1. China will not want to loose face by being seen to be bowing to US demands. Therefore being openly aggressive or demanding toward China is likely to be counter productive.
  2. China does not want a US ally bang up against its border and therefore is not going to lick the legs out from under the NK regime if it means that SK take over a unified country
  3. China does not want the problem of millions of NK refugees if the NK regime and/or economy collapse completely

I would imagine that if anyone can come up with a solution that meets all the above conditions then China will grab it with both hands.
