The article reports that China is turning against North Korea in its attempt to develop nuclear and missile capacities, as they fear that it could hurt China as much as the U.S., Japan or South Korea. Immediately after the nuclear test on May 25, 2009, the Chinese Foreign Ministry had issued a tough statement condemning North Korea's failure to consider the opposition of the international community and may even give its consent to sanctions by the United Nations (UN) Security Council.
