International observers fear that North Korea may conduct another nuclear test this weekend on the anniversary of the founding of Kim Jung Un’s state. The USA and Japan however, will not tolerate this move.
Both China and the USA have pushed back on claims of troops massing all over peninsula. China would definitely react and try to prevent a US strike on North Korea.
While the U.S. has positioned an aircraft carrier off Korea’s coast, 150.000 soldiers of the People’s Liberation Army of China have gathered along the border with North Korea.
The Chinese presence would dissuade the U.S. from going into that territory because they would run the risk of inviting a larger conflict. This way China could preserve its buffer state from falling into Western influence and prevent a US military strike on its border and even prevent a possible nuclear war.
