China is looking to assert a more prominent role as “guarantor” of anticipated “symbolic deals” after negotiations between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un began in Singapore on Tuesday, the South China Morning Post(SCMP) reports, according to a report from Breitbart.
“If that’s the case, Beijing will have a role to play on how to implement the deals,” Cheng Xiaohe, an associate professor of international relations at Renmin University in Beijing, told SCMP. “That includes inspecting the North Korean nuclear shutdown, as well as a role in the economic development Kim is seeking for his country.”
Beijing is expected to take a bigger role in Korean peninsula negotiations after US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un meet on Tuesday – helping the two sides to push forward any deals they make.
The role would be as a “guarantor”, Chinese analysts say, not just of progress on the denuclearization Washington is seeking, but also to ensure what Kim wants most: the safety of his regime.
Beijing’s influence over Pyongyang came on Sunday, when Kim arrived in Singapore for the summit not aboard the North Korea Air Force Un, as it is known – a Soviet-made Ilyushin Il-62M jet – but on an Air China Boeing 747 sometimes used to transport Chinese leaders.
Kim’s flight path meanwhile appeared to maximize time spent in Chinese airspace during the journey, including veering off to pass over the southernmost province Hainan Island, according to Flight Radar 24, a Swedish website providing real-time data.
Confirming what occurred during the unprecedented summit on Tuesday, the state-owned Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) asserted that the two leaders would discuss a “permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism” on the Korean Peninsula, denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, and other issues of concern to the two nations, SCMP reported.
Allowing China to have any say or involvement in the treaty would be completely insane. China is communism, the U.S. and China are a powder keg in the South China Sea not to mention the insane amount of cyber attacks both nations face each day, from each other.
A series of cyberattacks sponsored by Chinese government hackers earlier this year infiltrated the computers of a U.S. Navy contractor, allowing a large amount of highly-sensitive data on undersea warfare to reportedly be stolen.
