Shortly after North Korea conducted what’s believed to be its first successful test of a hydrogen bomb (and its sixth nuclear test in total), China’s Nuclear Safety Administration said on Sunday that it would begin emergency monitoring for radiation along its northeastern border with North Korea, according to Reuters.

The emergency response was set at “level 2,” the second-highest grade on a four-tier system, according to the Times of Japan. The NSA did not indicate whether any radiation had been detected.

“’At present, the automatic radiation monitoring stations in the provinces of Heilongjiang, Jilin, Liaoning and Shandong are functioning properly,’ Xinhua reported, citing the Ministry of Environmental Protection, which administers the safety agency.”

Earlier in the day, the presidents of China and Russia agreed to “appropriately deal with” North Korea’s sixth and most powerful nuclear test, according to the South China Morning Post. Beijing strongly condemned Pyongyang’s actions and threatened to work with the United Nation’s Security Council to add sanctions. The agreement came as Chinese President Xi Jinping met his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Sunday night in Xiamen, Fujian province, ahead of Monday’s BRICS leaders’ summit, according to the SCMP.
