July 14 (Bloomberg) -- China agreed for the first time to punish senior North Korean government officials for defying United Nations resolutions barring nuclear and missile tests, China’s deputy ambassador said.
Ambassador Liu Zhenmin said his government would support imposing a travel ban and asset freeze on a “large percentage” of 15 North Korean officials proposed by the U.S. and other western nations as targets for UN sanctions.
Meanwhile, for Russia the threat of the SCO becoming a Chinese Trojan horse is ever-present. On the sidelines of the summit Chinese President Hu Jintao met with the leaders of Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. The Chinese government has pledged up to $10 billion in loans to the five nations of Central Asia that are struggling through the economic crisis (The Times, June 17). Apart from a $2 billion loan to Kyrgyzstan (which some suggest is a bribe to expel the U.S. base from Manas), Russia has been AWOL to many of the states in the region that are looking for leadership amidst the crisis.

If you think China and Russia aren't backdoor dealing with North Korea you're nuts. This is all a charade of the highest degree. China and Russia will always have a vested interest in North Korea. As usual Americans are being duped by the Chinese and Russians.
It is truly amazing how quickly good news travels [outside of CNN], and
in a very short space of time China was also engaged in a joint super
deep venture with Russia. Nor did it end there. As I write this report,
intelligence reports that the Russians have already moved three
deep-drilling rigs into impoverished North Korea, where they intend to
repeat the Vietnamese production cycle by drilling thought solid granite
and basalt, with not a single trace of the 'decaying marine life' so
essential to blinkered western geologists for the 'accepted' production
of crude oil. It may take a while, but ultimately the North Koreans will
be able to go about their sovereign business without the Zionist Cabal
in New York being able to blackmail them over a few ship loads of
food-aid rice. Yes indeed, Korea will eventually have an oil surplus of
its own, allowing it to tell the latest in a long line of terminally
insane "New World Orders" to go to hell.
