can't and we were talking about that who's going to deal with india. the nations and especially china, which purchase such a large amount that continue to purchase iranian oil, if we could get them to do more to scale back their energy purchases, i think it would take the sanctions regime, which are having an effect, and make them even more effective and hopefully help us. we have a meeting in early july and i think senator reid pulled it together with the number two leader of the chinese government and i asked him this question. you've reduced your oil purchases from iran for a variety of reasons, including to help the sanctions. could you reduce them dramatically further and then say, but if you give up your nuclear program, we're going buy a lot more from you, so have a stick, but then have a carrot, and could india do the same thing, dramatically reduce oil purchases, but with a carrot down the road, or japan could do the same thing, and the response to the chinese official was very adroit and very quick. he said he would be very willing to consider cutting our purchases from iran

has been unwilling to use that leverage to persuade pyongyang to change course. while china may have expressed its displeasure with the north's recent missile launch, the fact remains that beijing serves as pyongyang's economic lifeline, sending food and fuel to prop up the north korean regime and luxury goods to satisfy the north korean elite. china continues to play this role because beijing fears a flood of refugees from an unstable north korea more than a nuclear north korea armed with ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons. my guess is that beijing also likes having a buffer between itself and south korea, a strong u.s. ally. by enabling the north korean regime is aggressive and reckless behavior, which threatens regional stability, china in up undermining its own security calculus. just what kind of regime is south korea backing? life under the youngkim is as bleak as ever, with the average person enjoying no real religious our personal freedoms. hundreds of thousands of political prisoners remain in prison in gulags. others endeavour to skate by any means possible, even if it
