China responds to DPRK Criticism of China in State Media

North Korea’s state media published a rare criticism of China on Wednesday, accusing Chinese state media commentaries of undermining its relations with Beijing and worsening current tensions on the peninsula.

"A string of absurd and reckless remarks are now heard from China every day only to render the present bad situation tenser," a commentary by the official Korean Central News Agency, KCNA, said, referring to recent commentaries in China’s People’s Daily and Global Times newspaper.

"China had better ponder over the grave consequences to be entailed by its reckless act of chopping down the pillar of the DPRK-China relations," the commentary added.

“China should acknowledge in an honest manner that the D.P.R.K. has just contributed to protecting peace and security of China, foiling the U.S. scheme for aggression by waging a hard fight in the front line of the showdown with the U.S. for more than seven decades, and thank the D.P.R.K. for it,” it said. 

“Some theorists of China are spouting a load of nonsense that the D.P.R.K.’s access to nukes strains the situation in Northeast Asia and offers the U.S. an excuse for beefing up its strategic assets in the region.”

Democracy and Class Struggle says China is being lined up by USA to be the Patsy on North Korea and North Korea is pointing it out in public - interesting times !
