As the global world order changes with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, China is also looking forward to clinching low-hanging fruits immediately.
Reportedly, Chinese President Xi Jinping emphasized the need for significant economic cooperation between China and North Korea.
China shakes hands with US enemy North Korea to embrace aggressive posture
According to the reports of North Korea’s state media KCNA, Xi is aiming to strengthen his relations with North Korea.
During his message, Xi stated China is ready to work in collaboration with North Korea in its bid to develop friendly and cooperative relations “under a new situation.”
While Xi did not mention the so-called “new situation” explicitly, it is being widely believed the Chinese president was referring to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which seems to worsen with each passing day.

Xi’s remarks came in response to Kim Jong-un’s message regarding the conduct of the Winter Olympics in Beijing.
In his verbal message, the North Korean president congratulated his Chinese counterpart for the successful completion of the event.
North Korea was one of those countries which did not participate in the Chinese Winter Olympics, noting it was unable to do so, due to “hostile forces” and the worsening situation of the pandemic.
However, North Korea was not eligible to participate in the Winter Olympics in the first place, as it failed to send a team to the Tokyo Olympics, hence receiving a ban.
China, Russia helped North Korea evade US sanctions
Reportedly, both China and North Korea believe in the same style of governance where human rights are rarely given to the general population.
Experts believe as Russia belongs to the same clan, and it managed to get away from US sanctions so far, it is encouraging China to embrace the same policy, while increasing its bilateral relations with like-minded states.
Tonight it’s Ukraine falling to Russia, next it will be China taking over Taiwan, then it will be North Korea taking over South Korea. Then Iran will attack Israel.

Republicans have already indicated the Chinese invasion of Taiwan can come soon. Former President Trump even warned it will happen any day after the Winter Olympics, which is already over.
Just last month, both Russia and China blocked the United States’ attempt to put sanctions on North Korea’s missile program. America wanted to pursue sanction against the hostile regime, due to the recent spike in its missile activities.
According to diplomats aware of the matter, China asked for more time to study the North Korea case. Meanwhile, Russia demanded the United States’ evidence is not enough to be believed.
Back then, seven members of the UN Security Council, including the United States and Japan, established North Korea was on its path to occupying weapons of mass destruction; therefore, the sanctions should be immediate.
Reportedly, Russia, China, and North Korea want to create a political bloc against the West, as all three of these countries have similar sorts of authoritative governments with a common enemy named America.
North Korea’s president has often threatened he would start making nuclear bombs again.
