Ever since Chinese President Xi Jinping met with President Donald Trump, relations between China and America have seemed to improve tenfold overnight. That’s not a bad thing, given China is one of the 3 most powerful nations on earth.
On the heels of news that North Korea could be testing a nuclear bomb as soon as Saturday, China just sent a shocking reminder to their former best friend that they should probably pay close attention to.
The Daily Caller reports:
China warned its troublesome neighbor that it might want to think twice before conducting another nuclear test.
President Donald Trump spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping Wednesday about the “menace of North Korea,” and the two sides agreed to work together to solve the problem on the Korean Peninsula. The president has said, though, that “if China is not going to solve North Korea, we will.”
There is evidence that North Korea may be preparing for a sixth nuclear test, but China, the North’s “friendly neighbor,” is trying to convince Pyongyang to reconsider.
“If Pyongyang conducts its sixth nuclear test in the near future, the possibility of US military action against it will be higher than ever,” the Global Times, a newspaper run by the People’s Daily, the ruling party’s paper, wrote, “Not only Washington brimming with confidence and arrogance following the missile attacks on Syria, but Trump is also willing to be regarded as a man who honors his promises.”
“The US is making up its mind to stop the North from conducting further nuclear tests, it doesn’t plan to co-exist with a nuclear-armed Pyongyang,” the paper explained, “Pyongyang should avoid making mistakes at this time.”
