Stavridis: Moscow and China Voted for N. Korean Sanctions Because of Their Own ‘Self-Interest’

‘Self-interest is the short answer’

EXCERPT:

STAVRIDIS: "Two reasons. One is their own self-interest, the desire they both have to avoid the ultimate blow-up on the peninsula, and they feel that we are edging in that direction. Look at the cover of 'The Economist' magazine, highly regarded on Friday, nuclear cloud, one side of it President Trump, the other side Kim Jong-un. So they’re worried is the first piece, and the second one is you see the two of them, China and Russia beginning to work together to collude, not to coin a phrase, on international policy, and this is an area where they can work together that helps their overall international agenda. So self-interest is the short answer."
