China vows to block U.S. attack on North Korea

The comments by the Global Times came after President Donald Trump raised the level of his rhetoric against North Korea on Thursday, saying his earlier threat to unleash "fire and fury" on Pyongyang if it launched an attack may not have been tough enough.

It may be inferred that North Korea has more than four of such missiles, which could give the USA leader a great source of anxiety until possibly the end of his presidency. Therefore one of the most conspicuous events of current diplomacy is Beijing's support in principle of North Korean denuclearization.

This week, Washington and Pyongyang have several times exchanged sharp statements.

Meanwhile, it was reported that a fact sheet has been distributed among Guam residents in light of North Korea's threat to attack the U.S. territory.

It appears that the much-hyped threat to possibly obliterate at least a part of Guam may be a preemptive strike. Heretofore, the administration has urged China to press North Korea as a kind of subcontractor to achieve American objectives.

"This suggests to us that the Chinese military may be pulling more strings in Pyongyang than we had previously considered, hence their refusal to cut oil the supply to North Korea", the broker said in a research note sent to clients. Washington has been repeatedly stating that no option including the use of military force could be ruled out.

Perhaps only Beijing could stop Pyongyang from nuking Guam now. China's incentive to help implement denuclearization will be to impose comparable restraints on all of Korea.

That the Philippines could be affected by the nuclear strike is "remote", AFP spokesman Brig.

On Friday, Lavrov expressed his worries about the recent standoff between the United States and North Korea.

"Meanwhile, Assistant Secretary Kristoffer James Purisima of the Office of Civil Defense said the government is "[preparing] appropriate contingency plans, alerts and warnings for the awareness and protection of our civilian population".
