Trump-Kim summit on 12 June 2018 surprised the whole world especially China. China has been playing a very significant role in North Korea diplomatic relation, however, she may feel a little bit isolated in the summit yesterday.
When everyone is clapping hands for the US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, some may ask where is China, who used to be the key player between the US and North Korea. China is becoming the second largest economy and playing an influential role in global political issues in these ten years. And She was just absent in the summit yesterday. While Singapore was playing the perfect host for the summit, China only provided Mr Kim with aircraft for the trip.
During the presidency of Donald Trump, The US President sparked the trade war with China by ZTE issues and now he strongly sent the message to China that the US has a major participation on Korean Peninsula by this summit. Following the US Federal Reserve rising the interest rates, the global especially emerging markets will focus on the economic influence of the US again. Do the series of events mean that China is still too young to fight against the US?
