. secondly elements i see is a greater reliance on china to mount more pressure against north korea, at least rhetorically. china of course is pyongyang's biggest trading partner, last year i think 90 percent of the total trade came from, was china including most of north korea's food and energy supply so it is a very unique position. i think today the un security council is considering a new resolution, additional sanctions. while japan, south korea and the us are pushing for more sanctions area it seems china is resisting and is instead pushing for dialogue and an emergency meeting of the un sc. that happened last weekend is continuing today. president trump recently tweeted that china is trying hard to reign in north korea and the us envoy to the us nikki haley stated beijing is using a back channel to try to stop the dpr k from testing. this indicates, this is worrisome to me because it indicates do they not have direct channels? you've heard rumors of worsening relationships between the fact that kim jong-un since he's gained power has not visited beijing. he's not met the chinese

there is nowhere to lend or borrow money, no banks active in this market. goods coming from china and sold at wholesale markets in the border areas and wholesale markets in the provinces and retail markets, most of these transactions are executed based on trust. perhaps one interesting element that will again take time in north korea, is that a bit of trust more than before is developing in personal relationships. that is not to say that the regime of kim jong-un is less of a human rights denier than that of the father the other grandfather. my organization, committee for human rights in north korea has identified several trends in human rights under the kim jong-un regime. we have identified these trends based on a research methodology that comprises satellite imagery, testimony by defectors inside the country, and in this day and age, given technological advances we can benefit from, we even have access to sources inside the country. we have all heard about the purge going on inside north korea since 2009 when kim jong-un began preparing for the second transition of hereditary p

strongly about that. the second element i see is a greater reliance on china to mount more pressure against north korea, at least rhetorically. china, of course, is pyongyang's biggest trading partner. 90% of the total trade came from -- was china including most of north korea's food and energy supplies. so it is a very unique position. today the u.n. security council is considering a new resolution, additional sanctions while japan, u.s. and south korea are pushing for more sanctions. china is resisting sean pushing for dialogue at an emergency meeting of the unsc that happened last week and is continuing today. >> president trump recently tweeted that china is trying hard to reign in north korea and u.s. ambassador to the u.n. nikki haley recently stated that bay ying r ji beijing is trying to use a back channel. this indicates to me do they not have direct channels? we've heard rumors of worsening relationship between the two, the fact that kim jong-un since he gained power has not visited beijing. he's not met ping. we really have to question whether or not a reliance on china t

borrow money comingarket transactions from china in the border area and wholesale market in regional markets, most of these executed basede on trust so perhaps one development that might take time. it bit of trust more than before is developing. that is not to say the regime of jong-unn is less -- kim is less than the father or grandfather. my organization, the committee for human rights in north korea has identified several trends. we have identified these trends based on our research imagery,gy, satellite testimony by defectors and in the same age given technological advances that we can benefit from, we even have access to sources inside the country. we've all heard about the purge that has been going on in since early 2009. tankding to a think staffed with a lot of senior north korean defectors, the institute for national security strategy during the first five officials areior purged or executed. it is the entire bureaucratic support. -- just minutes before. you are talking about a machine gunsystem for machine barrels, 50 caliber automatic fire, human body such as polarized. th

, although these market transactions basically goods coming from china, so that wholesale markets. and wholesale markets in the provinces, retail markets. most of these transactions are executed based on trust. so perhaps one interesting development that will begin to take time in north korea is that a bit of trust, more than before is developing in personal relationships. that is not to say that the regime of kim jong-un is less of a human rights denier than that of the father or the grandfather. my organization, committee for human rights in north korea has identified several trends in human rights under the kim jong-un regime.we have identified these trends based on a research methodology that can provide satellite imagery, testimony from those inside the country and in this day and age, given technological advances that we can benefit from, we even have access to sources inside of the country. we have all heard about the purge that has been going on in north korea since early 2009. when the kim regime began proceeding with preparations for the second hereditary transmission of powe
the the n, much less to homeland n. doing so, we sought o partner with china, china accounts for 90% of economic activity with north korea, the clear with us en that we share the same denuclearized korean anyone's, it is not in interest. china has ways they can put and influence the north korean regime because of else lationship no one has. we've been very clear with the chinese, certainly don't blame chinese for the situation in north korea, only north korea is the situation. we believe china has a special and unique relationship because significant economic activity to influence the north no one egime in ways else can. that is why we continue to call that influence with north korea to create the conditions, where we can have a dialogue. host: lisa collins on those by rex tillerson, do they represent a shift in the trump administration's approach? i don't believe so, i think ultimately secretary theerson is signalling that u.s. wants to eventually move to ialogue, negotiations, which would help stop north korea nuclear program, i don't think he is saying that the lift up on on will
containing china or domestic purpose. because i think cannot have both. because china's help is critical. both as washington should continue to try to work with north korea because there can be no serious progress without china's cooperations. understanding china's interests as leverage of gaining trust can be the best way to draw chinese commitment to solve the problem. i'm going to finish my comment by quoting jeffrey bather's recent report. the attitude of the public debate in the u.s. over north korea problem that obsesses over the threat to the u.s. mainland why ignoring the clear and present danger to allies on the doorstep has revived lock debates in the region about u.s. reliability in the face of china. >> thank you. so i have so many questions, but i'll just ask few and open up to the audience. just the follow up on your statement on how do we need to consider leading with nuclear north korea. there's a debate here. i have a couple questions. first question has to do with containment. because we don't want to go there. we don't want to publicly extend the nuclear power
