Skip to comments.China urges North Korea to be ‘smart’ and drop its missile tests
Posted on 08/06/2017 5:32:58 PM PDT by Innovative
China delivered frank advice to North Korea, its outcast neighbor, on Sunday, telling Pyongyang to make a smart decision and stop conducting missile launches and nuclear tests.
The statement by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi came on the heels of a U.N. Security Council decision to impose additional sanctions on North Korea and its exports, and suggested that the American push to further isolate the regime of Kim Jung Un is reaping some dividends. But Wang also called on the United States to dial back the tension.

When China asks you to be ‘smart’, that’s not a request.
Sounds li,e President Trump told China to “be smart”.
I am sure China makes sure the Washington Post knows what is really going on.
China asks US to dial back the tension. It’s US who are in the sights of the NORK a-bombs, not China.
China needs to tell NORK to END their nuke and ICBM development programs and dismantle what they’ve built, not merely stop testing. That’s not enough.
I completely agree.
This thing is going critical. Our citizens are all supposed to be out of North Korea within three weeks.
That is also, how long Trump (and most of Washington) is now on “vacation”.
I think maybe China has about three weeks to bring this mess back, to reason. I am not sure they can, or really want to, but we will see.
Nice little country, Fat Boy. You wouldn’t want to mess up your gig.
Americans in the South are the ones gotta worry about.
Oh, CHINA TELLS ‘em, huh..?
Amazing that anyone falls for that..!
“No, these construction materials REALLY ARE top-drawer quality...”
ONLY AN IDIOT BELIEVES THAT.
China should contemplate the fact that they are well in range of NK’s missiles.
Has the idea entered Trump’s mind that China may perhaps be afraid for NoKo and does not want to unnecessarily piss off Fat Boy by giving the impression that it is siding with the US?
The Norks are too close to the big one. China can say all it wants while the Norks buy time.
NK is more likely to blow themselves up and China is in the fall out zone ...
He is more likely laughing maniacally, deep in the bowels of the earth.
Kim is a wack job and he will keep poking the tiger until we turn him into a smoking hole.
Its going to be ugly for the residents of South Korea.
Be a shame if one landed short and hit Iran
I would be fine with China doing an internal coop and taking that place over.
China’s big concern is millions of Nork refugees pouring over their border.
It’s South Korea’s concern, as well.
I am a little dense this evening. Tell me who the “big one” is.
Is it China or the US?
I don’t think that NK fears China or the US.
I think that China fears NK more than the other way around.
Same with Russia. Seems a lot of people just don't know or understand how they operate. More than a few here actually think the Russians are one of the 'good guys' in the world today. Some of these fools are probably on Moscow's payroll, and so actually know the real deal.
Despite efforts by the United Nations to impose isolating sanctions on North Korea in response to the countrys continued development of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles, trade between Russia and North Korea soared more than 85 percent in the first four months of the year.
Bullsh_t. This is more of China saying “Rook! A squirrel!”
