In an editorial, the Korea Times bemoaned the feeble response from China in the wake of the attack on Yeonpyeong.
“Regrettably, China has only called on the parties concerned to remain calm and show restraint, refusing to condemn the North’s blatant act of aggression,” said the Korea Times. “Against this backdrop, South Korea, the U.S. and Japan are required to work out more concrete and bolder action to end the North’s hostility. The three nations must keep in mind that action speaks louder than words. They had better show what zero tolerance means.”
