China hits back at Trump over N'Korea Criticism

Barely 24 hours after US President Donald Trump slammed China for not doing anything to stop North Korea’s continued missile activities, Beijing has criticised Trump’s comments saying everyone needed to work together to seek a resolution on the matter.

Trump in his earlier tweet after North Korea’s missile test said he was “very disappointed” in China and that Beijing profits from U.S. trade but had done “nothing” for the United States with regards to the North, something he would not allow to continue.

Responding to Trump’s tweet, China’s Foreign Ministry, in a statement, said the North Korean nuclear issue did not arise because of China and that all hands must be on deck to find a resolution.

“All parties should have a correct understanding of this,” it said, adding the international community widely recognised China’s efforts to seek a resolution.

Yesterday, the United States in a show of force against defiant North Korea flew in two B-1B bombers to the Korean peninsula.

According to U.S. Air Force, in a statement on Sunday, the B-1B flight, conducted on Saturday, was in direct response to the missile test and the previous July 3 launch of the “Hwansong-14” rocket by North Korea.
