Then step away and we will take care of the problem, right?
China hit back on Tuesday in unusually strong terms at repeated calls from the United States to put more pressure on North Korea, urging a halt to what it called the "China responsibility theory", and saying all parties needed to pull their weight.
U.S President Trump took a more conciliatory tone at a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday, but he has expressed some impatience that China, with its close economic and diplomatic ties to Pyongyang, is not doing enough to rein in North Korea.
That feeling has become particularly acute since Pyongyang launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that some experts believe could have the range to reach Alaska, and parts of the U.S. West Coast.
Asked about calls from the United States, Japan and others for China to put more pressure on North Korea, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said it was not China ratcheting up tension and the key to a resolution did not lie with Beijing.
"Recently, certain people, talking about the Korean peninsula nuclear issue, have been exaggerating and giving prominence to the so-called 'China responsibility theory,'" Geng told a daily news briefing, without naming any parties.
"I think this either shows lack of a full, correct knowledge of the issue, or there are ulterior motives for it, trying to shift responsibility," he added.
China has been making unremitting efforts and has played a constructive role, but all parties have to meet each other half way, Geng said.
"Asking others to do work, but doing nothing themselves is not OK," he added. "Being stabbed in the back is really not OK."
While China has been angered by North Korea's repeated nuclear and missile tests, it also blames the United States and South Korea for worsening tension with their military exercises.
Did you know that the Korean War has never officially ended?
Did you also know that when our fighting forces were over there either getting shot at or freezing to death that China sent thousands of troops into North Korea to help them fight against us?
Did you know that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un doesn't take a dump without China knowing about it?
If China says that North Korea is not their responsibility then all they need to do is step the fuck away and we will take that fat little fucker right the hell out of the nuclear arms game tomorrow and they damn well know it.
But that isn't going to happen.
China may be pissed off at us but they have been supporting North Korea since long before I was ever even a gleam in my Daddy's eye.
To say that they are not responsible for the shenanigans Kim Jong Un and his father before him have been pulling is disingenuous at best.
It's called Material Support Mr. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman dude and you have been doing it for seventy years now at least.
So take your indignant little ass right back to where you came from and try to come up with something not quite so laughable next time.
