China: Regime reportedly boosts defense preparations along North Korean border


Source: CNBC

“China has ramped up its defenses along its border with North Korea to ready itself for a potential crisis on the peninsula …. Beijing has increased surveillance of the border region as well as a ‘combat readiness-level big data disaster recovery center.’ The military has also conducted drills and transferred units from other regions …. these measures parallel President Donald Trump’s comments that he is considering military action to curb Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions and that Beijing should do more to handle the matter.” (07/24/17)
