Alleged leaked document on DPRK-China relations “fake,” says Beijing

Some experts maintain that alleged internal CPC briefing may be genuine

China’s foreign ministry on Wednesday denied the authenticity of an allegedly leaked Communist Party of China (CPC) memo which suggests Beijing will continue to allow North Korea to have nuclear weapons and receive economic assistance.

The document, which is alleged to have been sent on September 15 2017 by the general office of CPC to the ruling party’s international liaison department, is a "fake," foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang told press on Wednesday.
