China asked U.S. for a grace period of 100 days before taking concrete steps toward DPRK

Today’s Asahi front-paged the disclosure by several sources that when pressed by President Trump to dissuade North Korea from further provocations while visiting the U.S. in early April, Chinese President Xi pleaded that he needs 100 days before taking specific steps for restraining Pyongyang’s provocations. The daily said the Trump administration appears to be inclined not to pursue a military solution based on the assessment that the Chinese are set to ratchet up the pressure on their defiant neighbor. The two leaders may discuss China’s DPRK policy in Germany in July on the sidelines of the G20 summit as it marks the 100 days.
