In anticipation of a possible crisis on the Korean peninsula, China has started strengthening its border with North Korea, The Wall Street Journal wrote.
According to the publication, the Chinese military buildup can be observed on the entire border between China and North Korea (about 1,500 kilometres).
Thus, China is most likely preparing for a potential crisis around the DPRK, which may include a US military attack on the hermit kingdom.
