In other words, China’s leaders and many others in China, both in and outside the government, believe that China must prevent the denuclearization process and its own role within it from seriously and lastingly damaging China-North Korea relations by becoming too alienated from the Pyongyang regime. This would make China a loser in a major geopolitical game, even if North Korea, by virtue of some “magic strike,” were really denuclearized. A closely connected issue is China’s concern about the possible collapse or severe incapacitation of the Pyongyang regime and the ensuing chaos, which could result partly from some conceivable great pressure from China for denuclearization, especially cutting off the critical oil supply from China to North Korea on a somewhat permanent basis.

North Korea under Kim Jong-un is still nuclear armed, refusing to discuss its own denuclearization, keeping its strong hostility toward the ROK, and unreformed in both its domestic and foreign policy.
