On most days, China is considered one of a limited number of countries around the world who are considered friendly with North Korea.
But mysteriously, just day after President Trump’s meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, the communist country just flipped the script on their unruly neighbors to the south. This could get ugly, quick.
The Daily Caller reports:
If North Korea crosses Beijing’s “bottom line,” China may bomb its neighbor.
China warns the North’s nuclear activities must not jeopardize northeastern China. If North Korea negatively impacts China with its illicit nuclear activities, the latter will respond with force, a Global Times editorial published on the news service for the Chinese military stressed.
“China has a bottom line that it will protect at all costs, that is, the security and stability of northeast China,” the report stated. “If the bottom line is touched, China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back … By that time, it is not an issue of discussion whether China acquiesces in the US’ blows, but the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will launch attacks [on] DPRK nuclear facilities on its own.”
The northeastern provinces of Liaoning and Jilin border North Korea. Together with Heilongjiang Province, the three provinces make up the Shenyang Military Region.
“We all know that the DPRK’s sixth nuclear test is imminent, and various parties, especially China, are generally worried about this,” the editorial commented.
