The US will soon circulate drafts and negotiate with China and Russia… US Ambassador to the UN “Moment of Solidarity Demands”
(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Kim Hyo-jeong and Oh Soo-jin = Could whether to adopt the statement of the chairman of the United Nations Security Council publicly proposed by the United States in response to the launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM ) North Korea help the United States and China find common ground over the nuclear issue of North Korea in the future. There are prospects that it will become a test bed to show if it will.
The United States said at an open meeting of the Security Council held on the 21st local time that it would offer a chairman’s statement, saying, “It is another opportunity for the Security Council to hold North Korea accountable for its actions. “
On the 22nd (local time), the US mission to the United Nations said in a VOA broadcast investigation that “the draft of the US presidential statement will be shared with the Security Council shortly,” and that the draft will be distributed to others soon. member states, including China and Russia Consultations are expected to continue.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Lim Soo-seok said at a regular briefing on the 22nd, “Discussions are currently underway among the member states regarding the chairman’s statement.”
If the statement is adopted, the Security Council will issue a presidential statement in response to North Korea’s provocations for the first time in five years since August 2017.
In the Security Council, the chairman’s statement is the expression of intent at the level immediately below the resolution, the most powerful type of resolution.
It is a statement issued by the chairman of the Security Council by gathering the consensus of the member states, it is usually adopted by consensus of 15 member states (consent without a vote) and has the status of an official document of the Security Council. It is not legally binding, but it has the meaning that the Security Council speaks with one voice on a particular issue and leaves it as an official record.
It is said that the United States is currently focused on deriving a chairman’s statement rather than pursuing a separate additional sanctions decision together.
It seems that it is important for the Security Council to show unity in the face of a series of provocations by North Korea, even if the level is lowered than the level of the sanctions resolution, which is difficult to get the consent of China and Russia .
US Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield tweeted on the 23rd, “The Security Council must act in response to North Korea’s threatening and escalating behavior.”
What is notable is the approach that China and Russia are adopting in the negotiations.
In particular, it can be a ‘touchstone’ to measure China’s mood towards North Korea after the establishment of President Xi Jinping’s third term system at the National Congress of the Communist Party (Party Congress) last month.
After the party conference, President Xi attended the G20 and Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summits and held executive summit talks with the United States, South Korea, and Japan. After focusing on domestic politics for a while, he returned to the diplomatic arena to engage with the international community.
In a series of summit talks, Korea, the United States, and Japan insisted that China play a role in preventing North Korean provocations, and China also expressed its intention to play a ‘constructive role’ in its own way.
Right after that, the United States presented a practical proposal called a statement by the chairman of the Security Council, and diplomats believe that how the negotiations will be conducted can be a test.
Chinese Ambassador to the United Nations Jiang Jun defended North Korea at the open meeting of the Security Council on the 21st, saying that the United States should “respond positively to North Korea’s legitimate concerns” No such accusations were made.
However, if the negotiations for the chairman’s statement are to end, some compromise, such as accepting some of the content desired by China and Russia, is expected to be inevitable.
Meanwhile, South Korea, the United States, and Japan are reported to be reviewing the announcement of additional independent sanctions while continuing to push for the adoption of the Security Council chairman’s statement.
However, among the additional independent sanctions, it is seen that the cyber sector sanctions, which have been promoted with a significant share, are more likely to be seriously implemented in the case of a more serious provocation, such as North Korea’s 7th nuclear test, than r this ICBM.
