Reality Check on North Korean Sanctions

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A recent op-ed by Sung-Yoon Lee and Joshua Stanton highlights what should happen in dealing with North Korea. Unfortunately, for this long-time practitioner in the field of nonproliferation sanctions, it also highlights what cannot happen—or at least what cannot happen at an acceptable level of risk with the limited knowledge and the complex agendas that […] Reality Check on North Korean Sanctions is an article from 38 North: Informed Analysis of North Korea, published by the US-Korea Institute at SAIS.

China ambassador: Hacking sanctions could hurt Xi visit

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

China’s ambassador to the United States is warning that sanctioning Beijing for hacking the U.S. government would be counterproductive ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s Washington visit at the end of the month. The White House is reportedly on the precipice of unveiling economic sanctions against China for hacking U.S. companies, and potentially for orchestrating the massive digital theft of over 20 million federal workers’ data from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Such punishments would come at a pivotal time for the U.S.-China relationship. Later this month, Xi will make his first official trip as president to Washington for a series of high-level meetings. Both sides have been trying to remain on good terms ahead of the visit, despite ongoing disputes over China’s recent currency devaluation and territorial claims in the South China Sea, in addition to growing cyber tensions. Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai argued hacking sanctions could help derail the meetings. Such punishments would be non-constructive, Cui said, according to China Daily, a state news outlet. “This means that China and the U.S. have every reason to conduct more communications and cooperation in this regard, instead of moving towards conflict and confrontation,” the ambassador […]
