Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi believes there may be a conflict between the US and North Korea as soon as this Easter weekend. Mr Wang said, “One has the feeling that a conflict could break out at any moment and if war occurred there could be no winner.” Wang’s comments come as the United States vows to stop North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons only days after deploying the USS Carl Vinson super-carrier naval attack group to the Korean peninsula.
China fears any conflict could cause the regime to collapse which could send a flood of refugees across the Chinese border border. In preparation, China has deployed 150,000 army troops on their shared border with North Korea.
“We call on all parties to refrain from provoking and threatening each other, whether in words or actions, and not let the situation get to an irreversible and unmanageable stage,” Wang added.
