PLA general: North Korea abandoned socialism; China will not prevent its collapse

A commentary in China's state-run newspaper Global Times said China will not step in to save North Korea if the Pyongyang regime collapses or starts a war. "China is not a savior," Wang Hongguang, formerly People's Liberation Army deputy commander of the Nanjing military region, wrote in the Global Time, which is close to the Chinese Communist Party. "Should North Korea really collapse, not even China can save it," he said.

Wang Hongguang: "The relations between China and North Korea are no longer based on socialism."
