China Prepping for North Korean Exodus Amid Nuclear Threat?
May 01, 2017
China seems to be preparing for a nuclear situation with North Korea as they ‘urgently’ recruit Korean-Chinese interpreters in a nearby Chinese border town.
According to The Korea Times, a Hong Kong-based news outlet published the story on Apr. 27, including a photo of a Chinese government document ordering the town of Dandong to recruit an unspecified number of Korean-Chinese interpreters to work at 10 departments in the town, including border security, public security, trade, customs and quarantine.
The document did not specify the reason behind the unusual, large-scale recruiting. But experts and local citizens said the move indicated that China was bracing for a possible military clash between the United States and North Korea.
This might trigger a huge exodus of North Koreans to border towns in China.
Whether this dismal scenario will become a reality is largely up to North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un.
