China gives North Korea blunt warning

NY Times:

China State Paper Warns North Korea to Avoid ‘Collision’

China’s leader, Xi Jinping, and President Trump spoke by phone about the escalating tensions with North Korea, while a Chinese state-run newspaper warned the North that it faced a cutoff of vital oil supplies if it dared test a nuclear weapon.
The question is will the Norks heed the advice?  They would certainly have to swallow a lot of their recent rhetoric.  It does appear that Trump and the Chinese leadership are pretty much on the same page in dealing with North Korea.  The Chinese have been more cooperative than at any time in recent memory when it comes to dealing with their belligerent neighbor.
