China urges both sides of North Korean dispute to stop irritating each other

By on May 3, 2017

China has urged both sides of the North Korean dispute to stay calm and ‘stop irritating each other’ and has told its citizens in the secretive state to leave in case Kim Jong-un provokes a US attack.

The US has urged China to do more to rein in its neighbour’s nuclear and missile programmes which have prompted an assertive response from President Donald Trump who warned the ‘era of strategic patience’ is over.

The US has sent a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to Korean waters and a pair of strategic US bombers flew training drills with the South Korean and Japanese air forces in another show of strength this week.
