Actually living in China and looking at the Chinese press everyday, they are pretty much condeming this. I think NK has become that anoyying little brother to China that profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfilterblocks all the time.

China's main focus is China anything that messes with that e.g. causeing problems between it and the nations that are pouring money into their pockets and not a huge financial burden like NK is, is bad...very bad..... Now Russia may pull a fast one.
Like I said....

The Security Council held a 3-hour emergency meeting on Sunday but took no action apart from agreeing to return to the issue. Russia and China, with the support of three other council members, made clear that they opposed U.S. and Japanese demands for a resolution punishing North Korea.

The five permanent members of the Security Council -- the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia -- plus Japan met at U.N. headquarters on Monday to explore a possible compromise, but Japan and the three Western powers failed to persuade Russia and China that strong condemnation was needed.
