China is unlikely to impose harsher measures on North Korea to corner the reclusive country, according to Joseph Liow, a Singapore-based expert on international politics of the Asia-Pacific region.
He believes from Beijing’s perspective, pressuring North Korean leader Kim Jong-un won’t serve China’s interest.
“While China has leverage, they would have to take a very strong position against Pyongyang (to change North Korea),” said Liow, dean of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Nanyang Technological University, in an interview.
