CHINA warns N’Korea, urges complete and immediate denuclearization of Korean peninsula as two US nuclear-powered Supercarriers with at least 200 attack jets land in days
AMID rising tension over North Korea’s missile and nuclear programmes, China has called for a complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula as the US Supercarriers, Carl Vinson, land the tense region in a few days for a possible military strike by the United states.
The US has consistently urged China to do the needful to persuade its closest ally to abandon its nuclear programme or they will do it alone.
Reacting to this threat as the US SuperCarrieer sails dangerously close, China has taken urgent steps to prevail its closest ally from bringing instability to the region.
“China is firmly supporting the denuclearisation of the area in the name of stability and peace”, Wang Yi told reporters in Athens after meeting Greek counterpart Nikos Kotzias.
“China may not have the key to this solution … but we are happy that more sides are accepting our point of view”, he added.
Meanwhile, the firebrand US President Donald Trump has urged China to take a stronger step to stop the hermit kingdom of North Korea to curb its nuclear programmes, a warning which the North Korea refuses to heed would risk a military confrontation with the world’s most powerful country.
Vice President Pence during a regional tour last week warned that “all options are on the table” to curb the North’s nuclear ambitions.
