North Korea says Syria airstrikes prove its nukes justified

US President Donald Trump and Xi Jinping, his Chinese counterpart, had their first meeting in Florida last week.

In a second tweet he wrote: "North Korea is looking for trouble".

Indeed, the Mar-a-Lago meeting was a big diplomatic move by Mr. Xi.

Although the U.S. State Department said before the meeting that Washington had "moved on" from the Taiwan issue, Lin said it was too early to tell what the outcome of the meeting between Trump and Xi would be.

North Korea on Sunday condemned the U.S. bombing in Syria as an "absolutely unacceptable aggression" against a sovereign state and said this justifies Pyongyang's further military development.

The swift action in Syria could be interpreted as a signal especially to defiant nuclear-armed North Korea - and by extension, its ally China - as well as other countries like Iran and Russian Federation of Trump's willingness to use military force.

"Xi Jinping sees no benefits in protecting North Korea because the country has long come under the sway of Jiang Zemin's faction; Zhou Yongkang, Liu Yunshan, and Zhang Dejiang are die-hard supporters of the North Korean regime", Zhang said on an NTD current affairs program.

Trump's campaign threats previous year to slap tariffs on Chinese goods and declare Beijing a currency manipulator have raised fears of a destructive trade war between the world's two largest economies.

Xi, 63, said that he and Trump, 70, have gained better understanding of each other, cemented their mutual trust, scored many major consensuses, and built up a good working relationship. Ross said the two countries agreed to a "100-day plan" to discuss trade; there were few details.

The two leaders were later photographed strolling the grounds of Trump's waterfront resort.

The Orioles tied the score 4-4 in the seventh on an RBI single by Trumbo off Dellin Betances (0-1). The Orioles took a 2-0 lead in the second on a fielder's choice by Trey Mancini and single by J.J.

McMaster says "there has to be a degree of simultaneous activity as well as sequencing of the defeat of IS first".

North Korea considers Syria an ally.

"We have made tremendous progress in our relationship with China" Trump said without going into specifics.

Rather than targeting Chinese exports through punitive actions, the aim of the plan proposed during the meeting appears to be increases in American exports to China through the reduction of trade barriers. Overall, the summit did not produce any significant results, with the usa air strike on Syria garnering far more attention, which China could have interpreted as a diplomatic slight. A United States strike would not resolve the issue but further complicate the issue. Beijing faulted Trump's attack on Syria after Xi's visit and although the two leaders "reaffirmed their commitment to a denuclearized Korean peninsula", per the White House, China has given Trump no commitment to rein in Kim.

Before his election, President Trump too had described fighting ISIS and seeking Assad's removal at the same time as "idiocy".

Perhaps mindful of parallels that could be drawn over defiance of worldwide norms, North Korea denounced the US missile strike on Syria as "intolerable", and reiterated its own right to self-defense. He has taken particular aim at renegotiating trade relationships with China and Mexico.

Full interview of Trump with Bartiromo will be aired Wednesday 6 am ET on Fox Business Network, Wednesday 6 pm in Philippines.

The U.S. has sent an aircraft carrier strike group to the region after the latest missile test by North Korea last week, drawing a forceful warning from Pyongyang.

On Saturday evening, the White House also released a readout of President Trump's call to Saudi King Salman bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saud who reaffirmed strong Saudi support for the USA military strike against the Sayrat Airfield on Friday and thanked Mr Trump "for his courageous action". -China summit in years.
