'Don't shift responsibility': China says pressuring N. Korea isn't solely up to Beijing



China has responded to repeated calls for Beijing to put pressure on North Korea, stating that such responsibility does not rest solely on China. 


President Trump has repeatedly urged for Beijing to use its influence as Pyongyang's sole economic lifeline.

“Recently, certain people, talking about the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, have been exaggerating and giving prominence to the so-called ‘China responsibility theory’,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a daily news briefing on Tuesday, as quoted by Reuters.

“I think this either shows lack of a full, correct knowledge of the issue, or there are ulterior motives for it, trying to shift responsibility.

“Asking others to do work, but doing nothing themselves is not OK,” he added. 

“Being stabbed in the back is really not OK.”

“The ‘China responsibility theory’ on the peninsula nuclear issue can stop,” Geng said.

Although Geng did not mention any names during his Tuesday remarks, they come after repeated calls from the US for Beijing to put more pressure on North Korea over its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

It also comes after Donald Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Hamburg on Saturday, with the US president calling it an “excellent” meeting in which the two spoke about trade and North Korea.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said following the meeting that “substantive discussions” had taken place between the two leaders.

“In regards to China, we had very direct discussions about North Korea. 

We had very direct discussions about military and security cooperation,” Mnuchin said.

“I think that President Trump made very clear to President Xi that he is focused on this issue, and wants to move forward and make progress. 

And I think President Xi gave a very interesting perspective from their standpoint,” he added.

The talks followed public discontent by Trump over China's continued trade with Pyongyang, with the US leader tweeting last week that any cooperation between Washington and Beijing was unlikely when it came to the North Korea issue.

However, as Trump continues to express a desire to work alongside China when it comes to North Korea, Beijing has accused Washington and Seoul of worsening tensions in the region with joint military exercises.

The US and China are also in the midst of tense relations over Washington's decision to deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system to South Korea, with Beijing saying it threatens China's security and will do nothing to ease tensions.

Although Washington has called for North Korea to end all missile testing and for the ‘de-nuclearization’ of the Korean Peninsula, Pyongyang has ignored those calls and has continued to launch missile tests – including one on the Fourth of July which it said was for the “American bastards.”


North Korea says its nuclear and ballistic missile programs are non-negotiable, “unless the US hostile policy and nuclear threat to the DPRK are definitely terminated,” according to the official state news outlet KCNA.

سندی که در تصویر میبینید دستور فرمانده نیروی سرکوبگر انتظامی تهران به همه یگانهای مستقر در این شهر است.
بر اساس این دستور کار ، مزدوران حکومت فاسد نظام جمهوری اسلامی اجازه یافته اند که درصورت بروز هرگونه جنبش اعتراضی از سوی مردم علیه رژیم ، از سلاح گرم استفاده کنند.
این دستور یک فرمان قتل است.
نیروی سرکوبگر انتظامی که به ظاهر و تعریف شناخته شده پلیس در سراسر جهان ، میبایست حافظ جان شهروندان باشد ، با آزاد گذاشتن دست مزدوران چکمه پوش خود انها را مجاز به قتل ایرانیان معترض به فسادهای موجود درلایه های حکومت میکنند و این پیام مهم را در خود دارد که اگر در اعتراض به  فساد و شکنجه و کشتار به خیابانها بریزید شما را خواهیم کشت.
چرا که به گفته خمینی دجال، حفظ نظام از اوجب واجبات است.
حکومت فاسدی که انقدر وقیح هست که میلیاردها دلار از خزانه ملی و سرمایه مردمی را صرف سرکوب مردم خود و کشورهای منطقه میکند باید سرنگون کرد.
اکنون چهل سال است که کشور ما به اشغال این ملایان جنایکتارخونخوار و اسلام تحمیلی در آمده است .
هنوز باورش برای برخی سخت است که درک کنند کشور ما به معنای واقعی کلمه از سوی بنیادگرایان الله…

مائده مختار زاده یکی از اعضاء فعال گروهک تروریستی سازمان مجاهدین خلق در ایران_قسمت 1

گزارش شماره یک درباره یکی از خائنین به ملت ایران
 همانطور که ملت بزرگ و شریف ایران زمین میدانند یکی از خطرناک ترین و فاسدترین گروه های تروریستی که سالیان سال در سطح جهان وایران به فعالیتهای غیر انسانی و جنایتکارانه مبادرت می ورزند و با افکار و عقاید بیمارگونه خود جانهای جوانان ایران زمین را می آلایند، گروهک تروریستی مجاهدین خلق می باشد.
جنایات آنان طی سالیان گذشته بر همگان آشکار بوده و چه خانواده هایی که فرزندان عزیز خود را که توسط اعضای این گروه شستشوی مغزی داده شدند ، از دست داده اند و دیگرانی که طعمه شکارچیان بی رحم این گروه تروریستی قرار گرفته اند.
اما خانواده هایی هستند که همچنان نسل اندر نسل به این سازمان تروریستی وفادارند و ایدئولوژی جنایتکارانه خود را به فرزندشان منتقل می کنند و همچنان در داخل و خارج ایران به ترویج افکار مسموم آنها و همچنین فعالیتهای تروریستی مشغول می باشند.
در اینجا به معرفی یکی از این خانواده ها و تشریح فعالیتهای آنها از سالهای آغازین انقلاب ایران تا کنون  خواهیم پرداخت:
مصطفی و جعفر مهیمنی و یکی از خواهرانشان مرضیه مهیمنی ساکن شهرستان بابل در استان مازندران در س…
