China has called on the West not to resort to military force in response to North Korean missile activity. Simultaneously, Beijing has urged Kim Jong-un to halt his nuclear program in exchange for Chinese protection. It comes as fears of military action the region are heightened following the US decision to send in an aircraft carrier group.

In an official statement on Thursday April 13, China insisted that military force would not be able to resolve the mounting tensions in the Asia Pacific over North Korea’s numerous illegal missile tests, some of which have violated the territory of it neighbors, such as Japan.

Meanwhile, in an influential Chinese state newspaper, Beijing has urged North Korea to halt its provocative, and illegal, nuclear program in exchange for Chinese protection.

The dual-pronged approach by Beijing comes as a US aircraft carrier is steaming towards the Korean peninsula. A serious show of military strength by the US, the move is being seen as physical evidence that US President Trump is running out patience towards the rogue state.
