U.S vs North Korea: We will defend North Korea if the U.S attacks first — China
China has stated that it’ll continue to toe the diplomatic line and stay neutral in the current U.S- North Korean war of words unless the United States decides to attack the secretive state of North Korea first.
U.S President, Donald Trump on Thursday evening threatened to deal with North Korea if they tried to attack the U.S Island of Guam on the 15th of August, threats to which the North Korean government called ‘a load of nonsense’ , and now China, who major political analysts believe can put an end to North Korea’s nuclear missile development, has stated that it will attack the United States if the U.S first attacks the North Korean regime.
“If the U.S. and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime, and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so,” reported the Global Times, Chinese Communist Party controlled newspaper said.
Australia, Japan and South Korea have also come out to state their support of the U.S in the event of an all-out attack on the North Korean regime.
Japanese military stated this week ‘We are ready to shoot down North Korean nuclear missiles, if necessary.”
In Australia, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull described his country and the U.S. as being “joined at the hip,” the South China Morning Post reported.
“If there is an attack on the U.S., the Anzus Treaty would be invoked,” and Australia would aid the U.S., Turnbull told Australia’s 3AW radio Friday morning.
