North Korea is bordered by Russia to the north via a short land border and by a China to the north and northwest; South Korea to the south. Across the Yellow Sea to the west is China, and over the Sea of Japan, to the east, is Japan. If there is a nuclear conflict, a strike upon either Korea, these are the countries, the peoples -- the human beings -- that will suffer the most. - Google maps (edited 5/10)
The Trump administration is appealing to the People's Republic of China to interact and find a peaceful and effective solution with North Korea in its policy of nuclear drama -- tests, threats, blackmail -- a historical policy going back to Kim Jong Il, to secure additional sources of economy for a mismanaged, impoverished, totalitarian regime. China is Kim Jong Un's main ally, the primary support of all materials, energy, oil, trade, with North Korea. - some sources: CNN, Fox, MSNBC
