China warns Kim Jong-un over nuclear weapons prompting panic
The Chinese Embassy in North Korea has urged all citizens to return home following the “last warning” from China to Kim Jong-un over his nuclear weapons program.
News of the warning from China has gone viral on Chinese social media prompting a mass exodus from the North Korean state.
Fears are mounting that the US will strike North Korea at any moment due to Kim Jon-un refusal to back down over his nation’s nuclear testing. Reports from Chinese media suggest that Beijing could turn its back on Pyongyang should N.Korea conduct another missile test, giving Donald Trump the “OK” to strike.
According to Korea Times, the rumor that China has given North Korea a final warning has drawn particular interest from Weibo users.
The rumor cited the May issue of Hong Kong monthly news outlet Dong Xiang.It said a Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs junior minister invited Park Myung-ho, an official of North Korea, for a meeting.
China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi attended the meeting and asked his junior to read aloud the warning to the North over the nuclear test.
The memorandum mentioned that China will condemn strongly, pull back on all economic cooperation and even blockade North Korea if it conducted the test.
A Chinese netizen said: “Maybe the bond between the nations is not that strong as we thought. North Korea is completely surrounded by enemies now.”
The Korea Times has reported that the Chinese Embassy has begun sending out radio broadcasts to Korean-Chinese residents to return home amid fears that the North Korean provocations will prompt a strike from the United States.
A U.S-based radio station that specializes in North Korea, Radio Free Asia, confirmed that China’s embassy in Pyongyang has already begun sending people back home as concerns mount that war may be imminent.
The station cited a Korean-Chinese living in the North’s capital, who said he left for China after the embassy contacted him.
He said he has been visiting China every two to three months but, after being told he should “stay in China for a while,” left North Korea a month early. “The embassy has never given such a warning. I was worried and left the country in a hurry,” said the man, whose name was withheld.
