A CONTINGENT of Chinese troops has reportedly been stationed for a month in the economic zone of Rajin-Sonbong in northeast North Korea.
South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo reported a South Korean official as saying the People’s Liberation Army force had been deployed “to guard port facilities China has invested in”.

But China’s Global Times quoted a defence official as dismissing the report. “China will not send a single soldier to other countries without the approval of the UN,” he said.

Troops would be stationed overseas “for peacekeeping missions and disaster rescue efforts approved by the UN”.
