Senior Chinese military officer Colonel Zhou Bo in an exclusive interview said China has has ‘zero contact’ with North Korea and has ‘no intention’ to use force in the South China Sea. This was reported by Channel NewsAsia.
“In the past we did, we had a lot of contact and exchanges. I think this reflects a kind of change in our relationship for the reasons known to all,” he said.
“China is right now united with the international community to seriously honor UN resolutions, and we hope we eventually may find a solution to these problems," he noted.
“I believe China has always made its position clear to DPRK, that it's in its own interests to pursue denuclearization for the stability of the Korean peninsula. But the situation right now seems to be too chaotic, because of so many issues. Because of the THAAD system,” he said.
As it was reported earlier China and Iran conducted naval exercises in Persian Gulf. Exercises took place against the background of heightened tension between the Iranian and American military in this region.
