FILE - In this Sept. 9, 2017, file photo, visitors walk across the Yalu River Broken Bridge, right, next to the Friendship Bridge connecting China and North Korea in Dandong in northeastern China's Liaoning province.

Their relationship is less about friendship or political bonds than a deep and mutually uneasy dependency. (AP Photo/Emily Wang, File)
