Wikileaks cables reveal China ‘ready to abandon North Korea’ | World news | The Guardian

“China has signalled its readiness to accept Korean reunification and is privately distancing itself from the North Korean regime, according to leaked US embassy cables that reveal senior Beijing figures regard their official ally as a ‘spoiled child’.
News of the Chinese shift comes at a crucial juncture after the North’s artillery bombardment of a South Korean island last week that killed four people and led both sides to threaten war. China has refused to condemn the North Korean action. But today Beijing appeared to bow to US pressure to help bring about a diplomatic solution, calling for ’emergency consultations’ and inviting a senior North Korean official to Beijing.”
