Beijing government advisors observe that the risk of war on the Korean peninsula is at its highest point in decades.

Senior government advisers and military officers warned Beijing on Saturday that the escalation of the war of words between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un indicates that China must remain on high alert for war on the Korean peninsula, as the risk of conflict has never been greater.

“North Korea is a time bomb,” detailed China’s executive-level State Council cabinet advisor Shi Yinhong during a Beijing conference on the Korean crisis.

“We can only delay the explosion, hoping that by delaying it, a time will come to remove the detonator,” said Shi, a Renmin University international relations professor, cited by the South China Morning Post (SCMP).

Recent moves by China, including support for Western sanctions against Pyongyang, indicate that Beijing is losing control of what influence it has in the ongoing crisis, Chinese government advisors have warned.

“Conditions on the peninsula now make for the biggest risk of a war in decades,” added Shi.

In his warnings, Shi asserted that it was already too late to avert open war, as Trump and Kim remain locked in a rapidly escalating exchange of threats.

During the conference, Wang Hongguang, a former Chinese high-ranking military commander and current Beijing advisor, warned that war on the Korean peninsula could erupt at any time, particularly as the US and South Korea will hold their large-scale annual military drills in March.
