China strengthens ties with defiant North Korea

Chinese has decided to go ahead and strengthens ties with the defiant North Korea despite United States (U.S.) war threats.

Air China Ltd will increase its flights between Beijing and the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, from early May, after it cancelled some flights this month because of what it said was weak demand.

China’s national airline said on April 14 some flights would be temporarily cut “based on the situation of ticket sales,” but it denied a report by state broadcaster CCTV that its flights to Pyongyang would be suspended indefinitely.

Searches on Air China’s website on Tuesday showed the carrier will have one flight a week, on Fridays, for the first two weeks of May, and after that, two flights a week, on Monday and Friday.

Searches showed no flight scheduled for Friday this week.
