Can Trump and Xi agree on North Korea?

(Brookings) The United States has repeatedly criticized China for its unwillingness to appreciably heighten pressure on North Korea for its nuclear weapon and missile development. In the view of successive US administrations, China has failed to fully implement U.N. Security Council sanctions to inhibit Pyongyang’s weapons programs, or to exact other costs on North Korea.

The challenge for the Trump administration is to shift this corrosive and unproductive dynamic.
