ABSTRACT
The article focuses on China's stance on nuclear warfare. China is bothered with North Korea's explosion of a nuclear device in October 2006. China wants stability and trade in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. China is also dreading the idea of Japan becoming a part of the West's ballistic-missile defense system. However, direct military options can be avoided till Pyongyang, Korea, makes a move. China does not want nuclear components transiting their coastal waters or air space.
