North Korea is always there, fidgetting away, teetering on the brink of chaos, playing with fire. Now – tensions have escalated even more so with this rogue state.
How so? China has, according to The Independent, told all of its citizens living in the nation to flee immediately fearing that the relationship between Pyongyang and Washington D.C is about to get even more hostile.
Apparently the Chinese embassy in North Korea originally began advising Chinese citizens to go back to China last month but now they’re stepping up the game and urging them to do so.
The main fear for Chinese citizens living in the dictatorship is that the U.S. could soon launch an attack on North Korea – and with Trump in charge it seems very, very possible.
One Chinese man who frequently stays in North Korea was contacted by the embassy who told him to stay out of North Korea for ‘a while’.
He told Radio Free Asia:
The embassy has never given such a warning. I was worried and left the country in a hurry.
Just last weekend the secretive state threatened to sink a U.S. nuclear submarine deployed in South Korean waters, the latest instalment of the dick swinging contest between North Korea and the U.S.
Trump responded telling reporters ‘you’ll find out soon’ what we’re going to do about North Korea.
