China 'seriously concerned' about nuclear threats of North Korea

China says it is seriously concerned about North Korean nuclear development, in the wake of a BBC interview with a top official from the North. North Korea's vice-foreign minister told the BBC Pyongyang would continue to test missiles and would launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike if it thought the US was planning an attack. Foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said China opposed words or actions that could further raise tension. North Korea-US tension is growing.(BBC)
