Chinese Media Erroneously Reports North Korea Fired a Missile


Chinese media, specifically Xinhua, erroneously reported that North Korea had fired a missile or projectile, a story that was picked up by other other outlets such as Bloomberg according to Zero Hedge. 

Xinhua is the official press of the Chinese government, which means that anything coming from them should be taken seriously. However, according to different reports, North Korea didn’t fire off any missiles but instead were showing off new missiles that could be fired from a submarine (SLBM).

As Zero Hedge reported:

“As expected – and feared – during the annual “Day of the Sun” celebration parade (celebrating the birth of the nation’s founder), Bloomberg blasted a headline that Chinese news agency Xinhua reported that North Korea has fired a projectile.


On its website, Bloomberg immediately picked up the story, and ran with “North Korea Fires Projectile Media, Says Xinhua” (at a url which still reads: ““)”

The link above is directed to an article about North Korea showing off their new missiles as the world wonders what will happen. A senior North Korean military official said that their country was ready for nuclear war.

If the U.S. provokes recklessly, the revolutionary forces will take an annihilating strike,” Choe Ryong Hae said in a speech.

As American warships draw near, China has been trying to play mediator while also moving closer to America. While they have stopped coal imports from North Korea and a communist paper called for stiffer sanctions against North Korea, China warned that all parties should “stop provoking.”

“Once a war really happens, the result will be nothing but losing all round and no one could become a winner,” China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi said. “No matter who the nation is, if it continues to provoke wars in the Peninsula, it has to bear this historical responsibility and pay its price.”
