China appears to be flouting U.N. sanctions against North Korea, regional analysts say, as the U.N. Security Council weighs new measures against the Marxist government after its failed rocket launch last week.
The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee is panning the deficit compromise plan offered by so-called "Gang of Six" Senate leaders for its steep cuts in security funding.
"It's hard to say how much [of China's failure to implement the sanctions] is because it's a very big and hard-to-govern country"
The North Korean missile program and even more so its nuclear program were "an annoyance to China," said Fred Fleitz, now an analyst with the private-sector Langley Intelligence Group Network.
