China Vows 'Necessary Measures' in Event of Trade War with US

REUTERS

On March 8, as The Diplomat has already noted, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi held his yearly press conference on the sidelines of the annual session of the National People's Congress.

China has responded positively to the developments, as one would expect.

The North also agreed to hold a historic summit between its leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae In in late April.

"These initial steps must be followed up by corresponding and concerted efforts by the parties".

But foreign ministry officials have cautioned it is too early to assume the talks will bring a lasting breakthrough on the central issue - nuclear weapons.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said all relevant sides and particularly the United States and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPKK) should conduct a dialogue based on a "dual-track approach" to promote denuclearisation and peace mechanisms.

That value would be significantly higher, obviously, than the Eagles' fifth-round pick - even with Johnson included in the deal. Curry racked up 42 combined tackles (25 solo), three sacks, and a forced fumble in 16 games with the Eagles last season.

China, however, will "definitely" take necessary steps if Washington puts the tariffs in place, indicating Beijing is ready to implement retaliatory measures against the United States.

The relationship between Seoul and Pyongyang has been ostensibly improving after North Korea chose to join the February 9-25 Olympics in South Korea.

Wang also emphasized what he called the key role played in China's more pro-active foreign policy by President Xi Jinping, who is likely to remain leader indefinitely after the legislature lifts presidential term limits.

"Despite the light at the end of the tunnel the journey ahead will not be smooth", he stressed. However, part of the original question from the reporter (representing Reuters) was whether China believed that the United States should withdraw its forces from South Korea. "History has reminded us time and again that whenever tensions subsided on the peninsula the situation would be clouded by various interferences", he said.

"This proves that China's proposal of suspension for suspension was the right prescription for the problem and created basic conditions for the improvement of inter-Korean relations", Wang said.

"All must demonstrate political courage and make political decision".
