Chinese President Xi Jinping, U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un

Trump-Kim meeting marginalizes China

  • Talks between the U.S. and North Korea marginalize China
  • The North Korea-China relationship has been deteriorating for many years
  • China has a contradictory policy on Pyongyang’s nuclear program
  • Beijing will remain out of the loop as long as it maintains this policy

For those familiar with the backstory, though, it is easy to see what the North Korean regime wants to achieve with its nuclear program: Mr. Kim wants to meet the American president as an equal.
