After a visit to the Gulf in which he met the leaders of the states most threatened by Iran's aggressive foreign policy, Wen Jiabao, the Chinese premier, issued Beijing's clearest condemnation yet . "China adamantly opposes Iran developing and possessing nuclear weapons," he said. China appears to have sent a message to Iran that it could not rely on Beijing's unstinting support by reducing its imports of oil at a time when the US and Europe are promoting an embargo on the country. The Washington Post reported that China trimmed its oil imports from Iran in January from a daily average of around 550,000 barrels to 285,000 barrels a day. Chinese foreign policy experts said the statement demonstrated that Beijing would not allow its international position to end up beholden to Iran.

Taking a strong stand on Iran should speak volumes. [Unless of course one believes in China being part of the NWO] and or the [Rothschild banking puppet] scenario etc etc etc.
China also has fairly recently let it be known they are getting tired of carrying North Korea. It costs them money to support and all North Korea really does is cause trouble with countries China does Billions of dollars worth of business with.
So maybe China is finally cutting it's losses [something the US should do as well]
Given Iran's vast oil fields nuclear power isn't needed and can only be seen as Iran's intent to someday develop the bomb.

Given this and their recent statements on NK. You think its basically about business as far as China is concerned and if its bad for business then they are out of it? Business in this case = China as an economic power.
