Continued concerns about North Korean statements about the brewing dispute between the country and the US are of much importance among Chinese officials. Initially it appeared that they were in support of their fellow East Asian Communist country. However, they have stated that now their main concern in the issue is that peace is kept. It will get really interesting if North Korea or the US decides to take action in war. I believe that China has too much at stake in the US for them to support North Korea but they are also at risk for an attack if they support the US because of their close location to North Korea.
