Coming from the aforementioned semiofficial Chinese mouthpiece (the country’s state run news agency). According to the Global Times, Chinese officials apparently have been discussing North Korea’s much-talked about anticipated strike on U.S soil. The Times claims that Chinese officials and its military have said that if the North tries to strike America first, the Chinese, will not assist when America retaliates.
Interestingly, they then reversed sentiments and said if America strikes and tries to overthrow the regime of Kim Jong Un — perhaps only then the Chinese would actually turn against America and defend Kim Jong Un. Meanwhile, new photos of apparent missiles from North Korea have surfaced online.
Chinese sources tell The Daily News that “This is indeed accurate. Leaders feel that both sides need to understand that China has interests in both parties that will remain protected at all costs”.
