China Debates Its Bond With North Korea

From Los Angeles Times:

When is it time to dump an old friend who insists on behaving badly? The debate is raging in China.

’s latest nuclear test raises the question of just how long the bonds forged between old communist allies will endure.

The test was conducted barely 50 miles from the Chinese border. The ground rumbled in northeast China, and some schools were evacuated because of fears of an earthquake.

“It was quite shocking. The location where they did this test was a lot closer to China than to where [North Korean leader] Kim Jong Il is living in Pyongyang,” said Zhang Liangui, a Korea expert with Beijing’s Central Party School, where Communist Party officials are trained.
