Chinese media accuses U.S. of “paranoia” in nuclear test remarks

‘U.S. is the most responsible country for Pyongyang’s recent nuclear test’, says Huanqui

Chinese Communist Party-affiliated media has attacked U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter’s for recent remarks that Beijing bears some responsibility for North Korea's fifth nuclear test, in an article in Huanqui on Monday.

“To look for who is 'responsible' for the North’s test, the U.S. certainly ranks first,” the editorial in the newspaper, which is published in English as Global Times, said.
