China, US partners need to enforce North Korea sanctions

Are we getting dragged to the tussle between the US and North Korea? It is time for the “merry-go-round” with sanctions on North Korea to end, Jamie Fly and Anthony Ruggiero write for Fox News. For the sanctions to work this time around, they say, the involvement of China, as well as US partners, in imposing the sanctions needs to be ensured. Besides stressing the need to coax China into participating effectively, they point out Singapore and Egypt in particular, saying: “For example, Singapore, a key U.S. ally, serves as a conduit for luxury goods to North Korea that helps North Korean leader Kim Jong Un remain in power. Even countries like Egypt have been urged by the Trump administration to cut off their dealings with the Kim regime as Cairo was a customer for North Korean missiles. America’s allies need to choose: do business with the United States or business with North Korea. You can’t do both.”
