China has asked its citizens who have been living in North Korea to leave that country and return to home. It is believed that this warning has come because of the rising tension between the USA and North Korea. It is also the result of the escalation of pressures between Washington DC and Pyongyang, reports Independent.
Let's have a look!
Radio Free Asia, a radio station based in the US which broadcasts to Asian countries, told its listeners that the embassy started sending this message to citizens by the Korean People Army's 85th anniversary.
The radio station quoted a Korean – Chinese man who was reportedly contacted by the Chinese embassy. This man is said to be living in Pyongyang.
The radio station didn't reveal the identity of a man. The man says, he had been regularly paying visits to China. Also, he made the claims that he was told to stay in China for 'some time' and changed his decision to leave North Korea a month earlier and then planned again for later. He arrived in China in late April.
"The embassy has never given such warning. I was worried and left the country in a hurry," the man said to Radio Free Asia. Claims from both Korea Times and Radio Free Asia have a contradicting tone as they both oppose the idea of each other.
There was no such information available on the website of the Chinese embassy in North Korea at the time this warning was made. No official comment has been received from the ministry yet; they have been contacted for a response.
North Korean publication site Uriminzokkiri posted the following threat: "The moment the USS Michigan tries to budge even a little, it will be doomed to face the miserable fate of becoming an underwater ghost without being able to come to the surface."
That's all, folks!
