China can stop North Korea. Will they? - Martin Schram

China can stop North Korea. Will they? - Martin Schram

At the United Nations, China reluctantly supported sanctions against North Korea after Pyongyang's Feb. 12 nuclear test. But U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice made clear last week that the United States expects China to do more.

"Clearly, with the border they have, with the economic relationship that they have, they can do more," Rice said in a speech at a women's forum in New York. She said China appeared to be "very much of the view that Kim Jong Un has gone too far, and that this now is a situation that has the potential to directly threaten their interests in the region -- both economic and security."
