- Story Text: China's foreign ministry said on Monday (September 4) that U.S. President Donald Trump's tweet that the U.S. was considering cutting trade to any country doing business with North Korea was "not objective and not fair".
Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a regular briefing in Beijing that China has made "arduous efforts" at peacefully resolving the North Korean nuclear issue and that its own interests are being sanctioned and harmed.
The North said it tested an advanced hydrogen bomb for a long-range missile on Sunday (September 3), prompting a vow of "massive" military response from the United States if either it or its allies were threatened.
