China has attacked UK Prime Minister Theresa May, calling her ’weak and vulnerable’, as she urged Beijing take action against North Korea.


Mrs May asked China to use its leverage as North Korea’s main ally to put pressure on Pyongyang, following Tuesday’s launch of a test missile over Japan.


But Beijing has today said that war is ’not an option’ to resolve the issue of North Korea’s claims it is getting close to developing nuclear weapons.


An editorial in the state-run Chinese newspaper Global Times said: ’May’s Conservative party lost many seats, turning her into a vulnerable prime minister.


’Weak people often look for opportunities to show their strength. Beijing does not need London to teach it how to deal with North Korea.’


The editorial also accused Mrs May of ’rehashing’ U.S. President Donald Trump’s statements on North Korea.


Earlier today, China’s Defense Ministry spokesman Col. Ren Guoqiang said that all parties should exercise restraint and avoid words and actions that escalate tension.


Ren said it’s China’s position that ’military means cannot be an option for resolving this issue.’


Beijing has also slammed a report that suggested the US, Japan and Britain were planning fresh punitive measures against the North, saying calls for sanctions were ’destructive’ and that those measures alone ’cannot fundamentally resolve the issue’.


The British Prime Minister’s comments on China’s role in de-escalating tensions between North Korea and the rest of the world came during her trip to Japan this week.


Mrs May said: ’Now we need to ensure it’s not just words of condemnation, but that action is taken, and China does have a particular position in this.


’They have leverage on North Korea, and I believe we should be encouraging China to exercise that leverage.’


The statements by China and Mrs May came after President Donald Trump declared that ’talking is not the answer’ on North Korea.
