(People's Daily Online)

Edited and Translated by Huang Beibei, People's Daily Online

On April 6, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi expressed severe concern over the current tense situation on the Korean Peninsula to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon over the phone, and said Beijing "does not allow troublemaking at the doorsteps of China."

In wake of the rising tensions on the Korea Peninsula, for the regional peace and stability and to safeguard China's national interest, it is necessary to address relevant sides over the issue:
To DPRK: do not misjudge the situation

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has many reasons to strengthen the arms and technology, and there are legitimate concerns of their own national security, but there is no reason to violate the relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council to engage in nuclear testing and launch missile using ballistic missile technology, which cannot shirk its responsibility in upgrading tensions on the peninsula last year.

The DPRK has its own special circumstances, political needs, policy choices and political language style, which is its internal affairs and the outside world has no right to interfere in. But if its choice and words intensifies the Korean Peninsula tensions and affects peace and stability in the region, it becomes the international issues. The situation’s development on the peninsula will not necessarily go according to the ideas and expectations of the DPRK.

The problem is that these 4 nations do not have "peace" as their primary interests. Each one has their own ulterior motives. China should make sure that it does not end up the only "loser" in this episode.

This is what the N Korean leader believes in view of "friends" and foes pushing N Korea to a corner with the US military threats and UN sanctions (supported even by so-called friends): "If we go down, we will bring "friends" and foes down with us, hell with the consequences .....!"And they are fully and morally justified in what they are doing right now ....Go N Korea Go!You have every right to defend your sovereignty just as "friends" like Russia and China developed their nuclear capability to deter the United States and prevent US nuclear blackmail ...! Do small sovereign nations not have the right to defend themselves ..or are they to be sacrificed in the horse trading among big powers!? People are not that really STUPID!!!

The DPRK has not been attacked by the USA, the DPRK is just in a temper tantrum. If it makes an attack on the USA, The United States will respond. Every life is important, with the power China has in the region, they can assure none of those lives are lost!
