UN Security Council considering various draft proposals over Chonan sinking

And of course, China appears to be holding things up and watering things down.

From AFP:
South Korea and UN Security Council members are studying several proposals on how to censure North Korea, a report said on Tuesday.

China has come up with its own draft for the UN statement over the sinking of a South Korean warship in March, Yonhap news agency said.

It quoted an unnamed government official as saying prospects for an early compromise were not good.

"There are various proposals... They are sometimes combined and sometimes separated," the official was quoted as saying.
What could be the holdup? As reported yesterday, Beijing doesn't want to actually implicate Pyongyang in their censure of Pyongyang.

  1. As said bfore, I wil say again: China must remain close to NK's side, or NK will become more dangerous, unpredictable, uncontrolable.

    Therefore, it is a difficult Chinese position, more than what the Americans may think.

    ALso, in addition to nuclear weapons and refugees, China like the US cares about geopolitical situations, meaning China would never allow a pro-US Korea to florish in the entire peninsula (like US vs Cuba, during the Cold war) because it is so close to China; thus China will never give up NK.

    Very sad to korea and continues Korea's history of being controlled by larger countries, but this is reality
