China to safeguard its citizens, business in North Korea

As the North Korea advised countries to consider evacuating their embassies in Pyongyang amid rising tension in the region, China today said it will safeguard the legitimate rights and business of its citizens.



Beijing: As the North Korea advised countries to consider evacuating their embassies in Pyongyang amid rising tension in the region, China today said it will safeguard the legitimate rights and business of its citizens.

"As far as I know, the Chinese embassy in the DPRK is still under normal operation," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said in a statement released today.

He said China will safeguard the legitimate rights and safety of its citizens and business in the Democratic People`s Republic of Korea (DPRK), the official name of North Korea.

His statement comes in the backdrop of Pyongyang informing the foreign missions based in the country that it cannot ensure their security as it ratcheted up the tensions with US and South Korea placing missiles in readiness.

China, a long standing ally of North Korea, has been urging caution and calm asking all the parties involved in the crisis to start dialogue process.
