Kim Jong-un’s regime, which used to notify Beijing ahead of weapon tests, did not issue a warning before its nuclear blast earlier this month.

North Korea expert Zhao Tong said many Chinese people “now see North Korea as a major liability”.

He added: “And it appears North Korea doesn’t mind annoying Beijing.”

Defiant North Korea has fired 22 missiles during 15 tests since February, despite international calls for the country to stop its weapon operations.

A hydrogen bomb was detonated on September 3 in the regime’s most powerful nuclear test to date.

And the rouge state’s weapon tests have put a strain on China and North Korea – two historical allies.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on Friday: “China is not the focus.

“China is not the driving force behind the escalating situation. And China is not the key to resolving the issue.”

She said Beijing has made “enormous sacrifices” in an effort force Pyongyang to end its weapons programme.

Last week, the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to step up sanctions against North Korea by imposing a ban on textile imports and fuel supplies being capped to 30 per cent.

Washington has lobbied hard for a total embargo on fuel, though China and Russia have both refused.

Now, however, Beijing could agree to such a ban, according to experts like Cheng Xiaohe, deputy director of Renmin University’s Centre for China’s International Strategic Studies.
