China Threatens to Retaliate Against US Over Hong Kong
June 1, 2020 — Voice of America News reports: “China has threatened to retaliate against the United States after President Donald Trump’s decision to begin the process of eliminating Hong Kong’s special status and impose restrictions on Chinese students in U.S. Trump’s action was prompted by a new Chinese national security law in Hong Kong.
Speaking to reporters at the daily briefing on Monday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said ‘the announced measures severely interfere with China’s internal affairs, damage U.S.-China relations, and will harm both sides. China is firmly opposed to this,’ adding that ‘any words or actions by the U.S. that harm China’s interests will meet with China’s firm counterattack.’
Trump said on Friday the controversial security law is tragic for the people of Hong Kong and violated China’s promise to protect its autonomy.
He said the Chinese government had been ‘diminishing the city’s longstanding and very proud status.’
The president stopped short, however, of calling an immediate end to privileges that have helped Hong Kong remain a global financial hub…” (China will become a basic partner with Russia for the rapidly approaching battle of Armageddon – Revelation 16:16. Russia will lead invasion number one – Ezekiel 38 & 39. China will lead invasion number two – Revelation 16:12; Revelation 9:14 – 16. Then all nations will come against Jerusalem for the final invasion at which point Jesus will return to stop the bloodshed and set up his eternal kingdom upon earth – “[He gathers] all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken… Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south” – Zechariah 14:2 – 4. Then Psalm 2:6 occurs as God the Father says: “…I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion [Jerusalem].” See the next three reports.)
China warns Britain interfering in Hong Kong will ‘backfire’
June 4, 2020 — SpaceWar.com reports: “China warned Britain on Wednesday that interfering in Hong Kong will backfire, after the former colonial power vowed to give sanctuary to locals who may flee the city if a controversial security law is passed.
The United States and Britain have enraged Beijing with their criticism of planned national security legislation that critics fear would destroy the semi-autonomous city’s limited freedoms.
British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has further angered Beijing by suggesting that it had time to ‘reconsider’ the plan, which could soon be enacted after the proposal was endorsed by China’s rubber-stamp parliament last week.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson, meanwhile, said London would not ‘walk away’ from Hong Kongers worried by Beijing’s control over the international business hub.
Johnson wrote in a column for The Times newspaper and the South China Morning Post that he would offer millions of Hong Kongers visas and a possible route to UK citizenship if China persists with its national security law.
Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said Beijing had lodged ‘serious representations’ with London over Raab’s remarks, which ‘grossly interfered’ in Hong Kong’s affairs.
‘We advise the UK to step back from the brink, abandon their Cold War mentality and colonial mindset, and recognise and respect the fact that Hong Kong has returned’ to China, Zhao said at a regular briefing…”
China Condemns ‘Provocative’ US Military Flight Over Taiwan
June 12, 2020 — Voice of America News reports: “China on Thursday condemned the U.S. military for the ‘provocative’ flight of one of its aircraft over Chinese-claimed Taiwan, saying the move infringed upon China’s sovereignty and contravened international law.
China considers democratically ruled Taiwan its own territory, and it regularly denounces the United States for its support of the island.
A U.S. C-40A, a military version of the Boeing 737, entered Taiwan air space with permission, though it did not land at any Taiwan airports, Taiwan’s Defense Ministry said Tuesday.
China’s Taiwan Affairs Office said the U.S. aircraft had ‘harmed our sovereignty, security and development rights, and contravened international law and the basic norms of international relations.’
‘It was an illegal act and a seriously provocative incident,’ the office said in a statement carried by state media. ‘We express strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition.’…”
China to join UN arms trade treaty, ‘enhance’ world peace
June 23, 2020 — SpaceWar.com reports: “China will join a global pact to regulate arms sales that has been rejected by the United States, with Beijing saying Monday it is committed to efforts to ‘enhance peace and stability’ in the world.
The Communist Party leadership’s top legislative body voted Saturday to adopt a decision on joining the UN Arms Trade Treaty that is designed to control the flow of weapons into conflict zones.
It comes after US President Donald Trump announced plans last year to pull the United States out of the agreement — which entered into force in 2014.
Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters that joining the treaty was ‘another important measure for China to support multilateralism’.
He added that the country would make a ‘continuous effort to maintain and enhance peace and stability in the world and region’, and that China has ‘always strictly controlled the export of military products’…”
Kim’s sister says North Korea will take ‘action’ against South
June 15, 2020 — SpaceWar.com reports: “North Korea will take ‘action’ against the South and entrust its military to carry it out, Kim Yo Jong, the powerful sister of leader Kim Jong Un, threatened Saturday in a statement carried by the KCNA news agency.
‘I feel it is high time to surely break with the south Korean authorities. We will soon take a next action,’ she said in the latest denunciation of Seoul.
Since last week the North has issued a series of vitriolic condemnations of the South over activists sending anti-Pyongyang leaflets over the border — something defectors do on a regular basis.
‘By exercising my power authorized by the Supreme Leader, our Party and the state, I gave an instruction to the arms of the department in charge of the affairs with enemy to decisively carry out the next action,’ said Kim Yo Jong, who is a key advisor to her brother…” (Kim Jong-un, and now his sister, are following in the footsteps of their father Kim Jong-il and grandfather Kim il-sung in seeking nuclear weapons. In 1993, President Bill Clinton spoke in South Korea and stated that if North Korea gained and used a nuclear weapon, the U.S. would quickly and overwhelming retaliate, and it would mean the end of their country as they know it. President George W. Bush named North Korea as one of the three-part ‘axis of evil’ along with Iran and Iraq in 2002. In 2014, President Barack Obama warned North Korea that the U.S. would not hesitate to use military might to defend our allies against this ‘pariah state’. And in August 2017, President Donald Trump stated: “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.” It is believed that North Korea developed nuclear weapons in 2004.)
North Korea Threatens ‘Sensational Event’ to End America
June 23, 2020 — Breitbart.com reports: “A statement from North Korea’s embassy in Moscow observing the 70th anniversary of the still-ongoing Korean War this weekend threatened a ‘sensational event’ leading to the destruction of the United States.
North Korea routinely threatened nuclear attacks on America for much of the past decade, peaking in intensity around 2016-2017. Pyongyang’s communist regime issued many of those threats in the form of videos simulating nuclear attacks on Washington, DC, and other major American cities. Following its most recent nuclear attack in September 2017, however, the United Nations approved of strict sanctions on North Korea that have crippled its economy and apparently limited its ability to threaten free states.
The belligerent statement out of Moscow follows a turbulent week in which the North Koreans bombed a joint liaison office with the South in Kaesong, built exclusively with South Korean money, and have since refused any talks with the leftist government of President Moon Jae-in. Dictator Kim Jong-un has apparently tasked his sister, Kim Yo-jong, with leading the propaganda charge against the South, as Kim has signed her name on several insulting statements targeting Moon.
Russia’s TASS news agency reported the statement out of North Korea’s outpost in Moscow on Saturday, stating it was sent to the agency directly from the embassy…” (Nuclear war is coming – “Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.” This conflict called Armageddon is described in Revelation 9:14 – 18.

North Korea denounces US two years after Singapore summit
June 15, 2020 — SpaceWar.com reports: “North Korea criticised Donald Trump in a stinging denunciation of the United States on Friday, the second anniversary of a landmark summit in Singapore where the US president shook hands with leader Kim Jong Un.
It was the latest in a series of vitriolic statements from Pyongyang aimed at both Washington and Seoul, and came a day after the North implicitly threatened to disrupt November’s election if the US did not stay out of inter-Korean affairs.
In recent days, Pyongyang has excoriated the South over defectors launching leaflets criticising Kim into the North and announced it was cutting all official communication links with Seoul.
Friday’s broadside contained some of the harshest criticism Pyongyang has sent Washington’s way in recent months, and casts doubt over the future of the two sides’ long-stalled nuclear talks process…”
North Korea: Washington remains a long-term threat
June 12, 2020 — Israel National News reports: “North Korea sees no improvement in relations to be made by maintaining a relationship between leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump, state media reported on Friday (local time).
US policies prove Washington remains a long-term threat to the North Korean state and its people, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Son Gwon said in a statement carried by the state news agency KCNA.
The statement was published on the anniversary of the Singapore summit in June 2018 which represented the first time a sitting American president met with a North Korean leader.
Ri said in retrospect the Trump administration appears to have been focusing on only scoring political points while seeking to isolate and suffocate North Korea, and threatening it with preemptive nuclear strikes and regime change…”
