China Says New N Korea Nuclear Test Possible

23 April 2013

China’s top general said a fourth North Korean nuclear weapons test is a possibility that underscores the need for talks between Pyongyang and other parties. Chief of the General Staff Gen. Fang Fenghui said Beijing firmly opposes the North’s nuclear weapons program and wants to work with others, including the two Koreas, Russia, Japan and the US, on negotiations to end it. His comments Monday followed a meeting with Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, whose first visit to China in that position comes amid heightened tensions between Pyongyang, South Korea and the US.—AP
