But they still want the Kim regime in power.
China has delivered an ultimatum to North Korea: If they hit the United States, they're on their own.
The state-run Global Times wrote in an editorial, "China should also make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten US soil first and the US retaliates, China will stay neutral."
However, should the U.S. and South Korea strike North Korea first, then "China will prevent them from" implementing regime change in North Korea.
The editorial continued:
China opposes both nuclear proliferation and war in the Korean Peninsula. It will not encourage any side to stir up military conflict, and will firmly resist any side which wants to change the status quo of the areas where China's interests are concerned. It is hoped that both Washington and Pyongyang can exercise restraint. The Korean Peninsula is where the strategic interests of all sides converge, and no side should try to be the absolute dominator of the region.
According to The Washington Post, experts believe that this Global Times editorial "probably does reflect government policy."
