In this op-ed for the New York Times, James Walsh and John S. Park argue that, though American diplomats should be proud of the new sanctions on North Korea that the United Nations Security Council passed last week, the key to stopping North Korea's weapons program is completely dismantling the private Chinese firms that help import illicit goods, through cooperation between the United States and China.
