China has decided to try the stick instead of the carrot with Kim Jong-un. But the tactic of “get back to that table and finish your carrots, young man,” might not work after letting the temperamental dictator have all the cookies he wanted before dinner got started.

Just completed call with President Moon of South Korea. Very happy and impressed with 15-0 United Nations vote on North Korea sanctions.

Unanimous, meaning that Russia and China actually agreed to these new sanctions.
