China Restrained in Response to Trump Sanctions over North Korea

Aug 24 , 2017

The Chinese government had hoped that Donald Trump might ease off his rhetoric after supporting tougher UN sanctions against North Korea earlier this month. 

However, the US president has since threatened Pyongyang with “fire and fury” and on Tuesday targeted a number of Chinese, Russian and Singaporean companies and individuals for allegedly working with proscribed North Korean entities. 

Beijing has decried “secondary sanctions” as an act of “long-arm jurisdiction” that violates its sovereign right to police Chinese companies according to local laws.
