No sudden changes in China – N.Korean relations: experts

China still hopes for regional stability, wants to keep place on global stage

Relations between China and North Korea will remain relatively unchanged in the near term, despite Pyongyang’s unexpected statement of a “successful H bomb nuclear test”, various experts told NK News on Thursday.

Experts said China’s strategic judgement on North Korea is unlikely to change in the short run, considering its economic development plans and the diplomatic dynamic in north-east Asia.
