October 11, 2022: Sangsoo Lee, Head of the Stockholm Korea Center, was quoted in BBC Chinese.

“It’s no matter of pressure from the Western countries. I think Beijing would not support new sanctions even if Pyongyang tests a nuclear weapon as it vetoed the U.N. sanctions on June 8. Instead, China will just call on all parties to be calm and not to escalate tensions,” said Sangsoo Lee.
