China Claims 'Great Sacrifices' on North Korea Issue

Days after the UN security council approved a new round of sanctions against North Korea, the Kim regime launched another intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) which flew over Japan in the early morning of September 15. In response, China emphasized its “great sacrifice” on the North Korea crisis and called for the United States to take responsibility.

Faced with North Korea’s blatant defiance against the international condemnation, the U.S. secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, issued an immediate statement, urging the international community, China and Russia in particular, to take “new measures” against North Korea. “China supplies North Korea with most of its oil. Russia is the largest employer of North Korean forced labor. China and Russia must indicate their intolerance for these reckless missile launches by taking direct actions of their own,” Tillerson said.
