"Use a i think a common metaphor because we're looking at basically a point in geopolitics when it comes down to three leaders okay uh in beijing pyongyang in washington and so we're looking as one of those moments in which global diplomacy particularly nucleararmed gobert upon missing has all that game theory so let's use the the game of poker okay xi jinping is playing a masterful game uh is not showing his cards now he's playing a very long strong hand and anc late now uh the i don't think he's terribly concerned that kim jongun his action using nuclear weapon i don't think he wants the regime to fall that's very clear china does not want the flood of several million koreans into northeastern china which would really strain their economy resources beyond imagining i think china likes the situation just as it is and i think china's playing upon this situation brilliantly uh in my own view it's already over china's one we've lost jewish and paying a cool poker player playing a long hand against an impulsive guy who's throwing the chips on the table and pounded on now calling on raising and trying to bluff in bluster is just sitting there not showing as hand beating trump at every move and that china's game i think is not concerned with northeast asia what china wants his the east china sea and the south china sea and china's getting both of them so in china's it's in china's interests to let this crisis drag on for months or years in the end and and then for for washington to think it's pressuring beijing to pressure pyongyang to stop the missile tests and and as long as that game is going on china's winning because the us navy has backed right out of the south china sea in every month that we don't run a freedom of information control effectively transfers day facto sovereignty over that critical water water china and so china's winning this game style there's no risk for china the i'm sure they've done an accurate assessment they don't really feel there's a serious risk of thermonuclear war they probably have pretty good intelligence about how the missile program is going the weaknesses of the strengths of the other thing that i think fraught with risk for the united states okay.

"Pyongyang's main trading partner but the trump administration is making clear that the failure to rein in north korea's nuclear program would make american military action more likely south korea has responded to pyongyang's nuclear test by staging a live fire a missile exercise more details from robin brunt in the capital seoul the missiles were launched from land and air aimed at targets in the east sea south korea's joint chiefs of staff said the mission was designed to replicate in attack on the nuclear testing sites in north korea photographs released by the government show the missiles being launched from an unnamed location on the edge of a forest these are conventional weapons the south doesn't have its own nuclear capability in another development sold is expected to approve the deployment of a us missile defence system and environmental report will clear the way for what's known as thad to be installed here china has repeatedly criticised the system which it claims is a threat to its security in the past few minutes south korea's defence ministry has said it continues to detect signs that north korea is preparing more ballistic missile launches with sanctions and military threats so far appearing to have had little impact on pyongyang a north america editor john sopol has this assessment of the choices facing the trump administration for all the define talk from president trump of fire and fury at of us weapons being locked and loaded there are no good military options as far as north career is concerned and so the us wants to pile the pressure on any country doing business with pyongyang more than anyone else that means china but he's washington really seriously threatening a fullscale trade war with beijing may be it's more about sending another message to president she that the us wants more decisive action from the chinese it may be that backchannel negotiations are underway it may be the chinese are exerting more pressure on kim jongun the we realise that could defuse the tension in the korean peninsula but as things stand there is a north korean militry whose capability is accelerating pfaff faster than analysts had anticipated and a us president who says the time for talking is over that is not a.
