Pindostan complains to China about NK’s attendance at Silk Road summit

BEIJING/SHANGHAI – Pindostabn warned China on Friday that NK’s attendance at a weekend summit on China’s new Silk Road could affect the participation of other countries, casting a shadow over what is Beijing’s biggest diplomatic event of 2017. Two sources with knowledge of the situation said the Pindop embassy in Beijing had submitted a diplomatic note to China’s foreign ministry, saying that inviting NK sent the wrong message at a time when the world was trying to pressure Pyongyang over its repeated missile and nuclear tests. China’s Foreign Ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment outside of working hours in China. The ministry said on Tuesday that NK would send a delegation to the summit but gave no other details. Asked about the invitation to NK to attend, Anna Richey-Allen, a spox for the State Dept’s East Asia Bureau, said Pindostan expected China to push its neighbor to return to “serious talks” on denuclearization.

That includes taking steps to make clear to the Kim Jong Un regime the political, economic, and diplomatic consequences of its reckless and unlawful actions.

Pindostan did not think it would be appropriate for NK to play a prominent role at the Belt and Road Forum, according to one of the sources familiar with the Pindo concerns. Pindostan will send a delegation led by White House adviser Matt Pottinger to the summit, China’s Foreign Ministry said earlier on Friday. Pres Trump has asked China to put more pressure on NK, and has praised Chinese Pres Xi’s role in trying to rein in Pyongyang. A source with knowledge of the note said that some Western countries could walk out of the specific session of the summit that NK were attending if they were given too important a role, but that no decisions had been taken yet. The source said:

This has generated a lot of concern.

It was not immediately clear which sessions NK would attend. There are several sessions happening on Sunday afternoon, including on trade, finance and people-to-people exchanges. China has given few details about attendees. NK’s chief delegate may also appear on stage in a group photo with other participants, said the same source, who is familiar with the planning for the summit. China has not announced who that chief delegate will be, but South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said Kim Yong Jae, NK’s minister of external economic relations, will lead the delegation. Leaders from 29 countries will attend the forum in Beijing on May 14-15, an event orchestrated to promote Xi’s vision of expanding links between Asia, Africa and Europe underpinned by billions of dollars in infrastructure investment. Some Western diplomats have expressed unease about both the summit and the plan as a whole, seeing it as an attempt to push Chinese influence globally. They are also concerned at the presence of leaders from countries with poor human rights records. China has rejected criticism of the plan and the summit, saying the scheme is open to all, is a win-win and is only about promoting prosperity. Some of China’s most reliable allies and partners will attend the forum, including Pres Putin, Pakistani PM Nawaz Sharif, Cambodian PM Hun Sen and Kazakh Pres Nazarbayev. However, the only leader from a G7 nation to attend will be the Italian PM, according to China’s foreign ministry. Despite Chinese anger at NK’s repeated nuclear and missile tests, China remains the isolated state’s most important economic and diplomatic backer, even as Beijing has signed up for tough UN sanctions against Pyongyang. China has over the years tried to coax NK into cautious, export-oriented economic reforms, rather than saber rattling and nuclear tests, but to little avail.
