China fears North Korea Tensions are Nearly “Irreversible”
China, who is against the North Korea nuclear program but fears a war with North Korea could lead to refugees flooding into China, fears tensions may be nearing the “irreversible” stage.
China said on Friday tension over North Korea had to be stopped from reaching an “irreversible and unmanageable stage” as a U.S. aircraft carrier group steamed toward the region amid fears the North may conduct a sixth nuclear weapons test.
China, North Korea’s sole major ally and neighbor which nevertheless opposes its weapons program, has called for talks leading to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
