China's intervention might hinge on US deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense ground-based missile defense system in South Korea. The North has thus far only spoken of responding to attack from the United States. Many weapons experts say the North could have a functioning nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the continental US within a few years. North Korean authorities, however, still need to move essential equipment into place for the test, which would violate numerous United Nations resolutions, the anonymously-sourced report said.

On the other hand, if the risks of proliferating nuclear weapons to non-state actors rise, or if North Korea looks like leading by example in Northeast Asia, this may become the only option.
To make up for the profits it expected from Beijing, North Korea is publicizing a new tourist cruise program, seeking global investors to develop tours around North Korea's mountainous Kosong port area.

UNCS Resolution 2231 lifted all punitive measures imposed on Iran, following years of grueling negotiations by Russian Federation, the United States, U.K., France, China and Germany. -China meeting. And by adopting them, Tillerson has shown that not only will he acquiesce to their request, but also has assented to the Chinese definition of the relationship - a definition that is not in the USA interest.
