North Korea has leveled unprecedented accusations against its ardent supporter China, warning Beijing not to try its patience or face its grave consequences. The official Korean Central News Agency has described Beijing’s call on Pyongyang to stop its nuclear and missile tests as reckless remarks. The KCNA says nothing could shake North Korea’s determination and that the country will not beg for the maintenance of relationship with China. The warning comes amid tensions between the North and China which is Pyongyang’s main window to the outer world. China’s state media have recently demanded North Korea to avoid making mistakes and abandon its nuclear programs. Officials in Beijing also urged both Pyongyang and the United States to exercise restraint after the US sent its battleships to the Korean Peninsula.
