No Chinese troop build up on North Korea border: Xinhua


There is no build up of Chinese troops along the North Korean border, state news agency Xinhua said on Friday, following a rise in tensions on the Korean peninsula.

“The reports are not true,” Xinhua cited an unnamed Defence Ministry official as saying, in response to what it said was foreign news reports about a build-up.
“China is paying close attention to the development of the current situation on the Korean peninsula and has always been committed to safeguarding peace and stability in Northeast Asia,” the spokesman added, according to the English-language report, Reuters reports.
