russia and china at the u.n. security council to get a resolution. you know, russia is clearly positioning itself, vladimir putin clearly positioning himself further away from the u.s. position by siding with china over the issue of calling for a freeze for freeze, a freeze for the weapons drills that the south koreans and united states are doing around the korean peninsula for a freeze of the nuclear activities in north korea. clearly a non-starter for the united states and its allies. you know, you have china concerned about possible trade relations with the united states going forward. russia concerned about its standing on the global stage. it wants a bigger position. it wants sanctions lifted from it. it's at a distance from the united states. so trying at the moment diplomatically to bring together principal players to get into a position where you can force north korea to step back from the brink where it's at now is very, very difficult. for that reason, the head of the iaea here says that he believes that while we can't know for sure that north korea has developed a mi
. security council for further sanctions on north korea. we know that china and russia are opposed. to that point, president putin had an article published in the newspaper that says he doesn't believe that sanctions work. of course, he is under tough sanctions from the united states, from the european union, from others, for annexing crimea and putting his troops inside ukraine. so there's that part of president putin's message. when it comes to xi jinping and north korea, president trump's relationship with the leader is on the slide, selling $1.4 billion worth of weapons system to taiwan, that's angered chinese and others. how will he win the chinese leader over to getting his commitment on stronger north korean sanctions? that's probably a bridge too far. most experts would probably -- would probably make that assessment. the best he perhaps can hope for is to avoid a chinese and russian veto. the u.n. security council. i think just think that the president's -- what the president needs to try to achieve here is a very, very big lift. he is absolutely sailing into the wind on this
president trump is expected to speak by phone with china's president. it will be the first known contact between these two leaders since the missile launch last week and its nuclear test over the weekend. after that test the president referred to north korea as an embarrassment to china and threatened to shut down trade between the two nations. overnight the president met with putin in russia both offering a sobering assessment of the crisis on the korean peninsula. we are at that economic forum where president putin and moon are meeting. what is russia's role in all of this? >> reporter: you know, this meeting here on the eastern coast of russia is really not very far from the north korean border at all. i think what's been very important is the north koreans really want russia on board when -- the south koreans want russia on board when they deal with this north korea crisis. they say it's important for them to see eye to eye with russia but there are clear points where there are difficulties between these two countries. they believe that stronger angsts are angs sanctions are in order
it. the u.s. says china needs to use economic leverage, beyond north korea you can expect both sides to also talk about trade. trump targeting him and what he calls unfair trade practice, does the president bring up things like possible tariffs, currency manipulations, some of the threats he's had in the past and will be interesting how much president xi jinping pushes back on his end and one more note that will make for a very interesting photo op a official in beijing says both sides are looking at what could be a joint press, the chinese president hardly ever has a press conference. >> that is such a test. i want to bring in our chief cnn correspondent, chris chia ina i amanpour. >> what can the president do if he has changed his mind and now his policy. what can he do about it? >> reporter: here is the thing christine, i really listened carefully and nearly leapt out of my seat when i heard president trump describe the crim crimes committed on the children in syria, he said it himself he's changed his attitude because of that attack and kept doubling down about how it passed line
strategy is to drastically increase pressure on the north korean regime. and russia and china are directly undermining the strategy by increasing their own trade with the regime and by blocking strong internal action. that is a huge problem. i don't think they'll get to that in the trump/putin meeting to be honest because they don't have the time. what you saw last night was president trump meet with the leaders of south korea and japan. mrs. pretty much unity amongst america's allies, no unity with -- there's pretty much unity amongst america's allies, no unity with the stopping of provocations. it's risky and not likely to work without chinese and russian buy-in. the question is if they're not going to do it voluntarily, do we pressure them to go along with it, and will that work, and does that represent a risk of escalation on its own. this problem will get worse before it gets better. that's not the trump administration's fault but their responsibility. and what we're all leaning toward is eventually we're going to have to sit down with the north koreans. we'll have to have di

can china put on north korea, whether it comes to enforcing those sanctions or trying to persuade kim jong-un to stop the nuclear and missile program. you also have negotiations and dialogue, and then, of course, the military option which mcmaster said nobody wants at this point. still, pointing out that all options are on the table. which of course they would be. it is inevitable that a country like the united states would be updating its military options when you consider that north korea has state its goal as being wanting to hit mainland united states with a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile. also have six prominent north korean experts in the united states writing an open letter to president trump saying that it is time to talk, urging him to talk to north korea saying, "to avoid a nuclear catastrophe." this is likely to be the same message we will be hearing from the south korean president when he meets later today with president trump. a key summit and certainly in south korea it's been dealt with in an interesting way. officials not more concerned with north ko
