June 9 (Bloomberg) -- United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he is confident that China will back U.S. efforts to impose tougher sanctions on North Korea in response to its nuclear-bomb test and missile launches.
“I believe China is on board, together with the major countries of the Security Council,” Ban, 64, said today during an interview with Bloomberg News. “I am confident that they will come out with unified and strong measures to ensure there are no further such actions by North Korea.”
And with the Chinese proclaiming themselves as the newest “superpower” comes serious obligations and the world is watching. If they truly want to be recognized as a member of the worlds’ elite, there come expectations.
North Korea is a prime place to start! If not now, prepare yourself for months and months of useless negotiations for the two journalists, sword rattling, street protests, bribery, concessions and endless rhetoric by all sides.

BEIJING (Reuters) - The top item on the Chinese website of Beijing's embassy in Pyongyang is a condemnation of North Korea's nuclear test.
That, and a recent blast of blunt criticism of North Korea in China's state-run press, suggest the rancor that officials feel toward their communist neighbor -- anger likely to bring Beijing behind a U.N. resolution condemning the May 25 test and threatening fresh sanctions.
Remember the US isn't the only country that is wants something done about NK.

Don't kid yourself, seriously.
China is not backing the US/West's position.
