Your are so right , for some fail to remember the treaty between DPRK and China , China is putting up er on a real good poker face for the world
to see www.cfr.org...
I do not think things have changed with them after ills death, Un still needs ok
from China, at least that's how i see it
China is North Korea's most important ally; biggest trading partner; and main source of food, arms, and
fuel. China has helped sustain Kim Jong-Il's regime and opposed harsh international economic sanctions in the hope of avoiding regime collapse and an
uncontrolled influx of refugees across its eight-hundred-mile border with North Korea. After Pyongyang tested a nuclear weapon in October 2006,
experts say that China has reconsidered the nature of its alliance to include both pressure and inducements. North Korea's second nuclear test in May
2009 further complicated its relationship with China, which has played a central role in the Six Party Talks, the multilateral framework aimed at
denuclearizing North Korea.
From what i have gathered, DPRK still has backing from China, for if China was to put it foot down DPRK would not
have made a new nuke test, nor be making the words of war.
