The most influential Chinese outlet, Global Times, just stated that President Donald Trump’s plans for North Korea have utterly “failed,” referring to the most recent missile test done by Pyongyang.
“It’s fair to say that US policy on North Korea has failed, and so has the policy of President Donald Trump,” the wrote the Times. They focused on the fact that Trump “heightened the pressure on North Korea at the wrong time, intensifying the tensions on the peninsula almost to the utmost, leaving little space for diplomatic maneuvering.”
“Although the US has demanded an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, the international community has actually run out of leverage against North Korea. Pyongyang has gained tremendous confidence this time, so the Security Council’s condemnation and possible fresh sanctions are no big deal.”
