USA sends message to N Korea, China with Syria strike

"The most interesting thing to me was they expressed an interest in reducing their net trade balance because of the impact it's having on money supply and inflation", Ross said.

China's state-run media agency blasted President Trump over his decision to bomb Syria, despite mutual praised offered both by President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping following their weekend summit in Florida. But the United States president later agreed to respect the "One China" policy in a telephone call with President Xi in February.

US President Donald Trump on Friday hailed the start of "a very great relationship" with Xi Jinping as he welcomed his Chinese counterpart for their first meeting amid bilateral tensions over issues like trade disputes and North Korea's nuclear ambitions. The two-day summit ended without formal conclusions, or even a press conference.

As the two leaders wrapped up a Florida summit overshadowed by USA missile strikes in Syria overnight, Xi joined Trump in stressing the positive mood of the meetings while papering over deep differences that have caused friction between the world's two biggest economies.

NBC News reported yesterday that a White House review of United States strategy for North Korea was now complete and a number of military options were under active consideration-including returning U.S. nuclear weapons to South Korea, "decapitation" attacks to kill North Korean leaders and covert sabotage inside North Korea.

North Korea is believed to be developing missiles capable of hitting the United States and a nuclear arsenal in defiance of U.N. sanctions.

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) - The U.S. airstrikes this week were aimed at a Syrian air base, but nearly certainly got the attention of another adversary - North Korea.

"They recognize that shows our clear determination to crack down on this sort of activity", Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told reporters.

"The missile strikes yesterday in Syria do send a message both to China and to North Korea that this administration is prepared to take decisive actions", said Tony Blinken, former deputy secretary of state, during a phone interview with VOA Friday, "and that may be a valuable message".

The official Chinese account of the talks in Xinhua did not mention North Korea.

The US side said there had been no "specific deliverables" from the talks, but had set a positive framework for the relationship moving forward. Just days before Xi arrived, Trump told the Financial Times: "If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will".

Asked about whether that is a plausible scenario, Blinken said that although it is "hard to imagine putting meaningful pressure" on North Korea without Beijing, which has significant leverage to exert economic pressure on Pyongyang, there are several unilateral steps available to Trump. This will increase the USA trade deficit and reduce employment in US manufacturing.

For Xi, who is entering a twice-a-decade Communist Party congress in the fall, the meeting with Trump was more about stabilizing the critical U.S.

"We have made tremendous progress in our relationship with China".

"I think truly progress has been made", he said, adding that "an outstanding" relationship had developed between the two leaders. "For the peace and stability of the world, we will also fulfill our historical responsibility". Trump reportedly informed Xi about the attack after a dinner on Thursday.

Despite the purposefully positive spin from both sides, there was no denying that the meeting had been overshadowed by USA missile strikes on Syria, which Trump announced just after his dinner with Xi on Thursday evening.

China's response was muted.

In the weeks leading up to the chemical attack, the administration had stressed that its priority in the Middle East was defeating ISIS, that it had no interest in getting mired there and that Assad's removal - an Obama administration focus - was no longer a priority.

Russian Federation might even see an advantage in the strike, said Andrew Tabler, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute.
