China does not support a first nuclear strike by North Korea.

I think that is a very moral position by China. China is stating a great deal in that position regarding North Korea. It is willing to risk problems all that will manifest should North Korea enter into a nuclear war with the USA.

China will be besieged by refugees and the potential of a nuclear strike near it's borders. There is also the danger of nuclear poison falling into the oceans and fisheries it has bought from North Korea. North Korea no longer values many things, including those fisheries.

China is correct in standing down from assisting North Korea in any way if it declares a first strike against Guam. But, in the same regard, the USA cannot be careless and should be sensitive to China in any retaliation. I thank China for it's consideration in supporting the moral decisions in such circumstances. Nuclear weapons are a plague on the world and China's decisions are thoughtful and correct.
