Beijing/Moscow : China has given indications that the Third World War may explode due to tensions in the Korean region. Wang Yi, the Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs, stated that the US and North Korea should put a brake on their words and actions and make efforts to reduce tensions in the Korean region.
Only then the ‘August Crisis’ could be avoided. A century back the First World War had been triggered due to conflict amongst the European nations. This conflict is referred to as the ‘July Crisis’. Using this as a reference, the Chinese Foreign Minister warned that the conflict in the Korean region may become a reason for a World War.
