China shows no sign of caving in to U.S. pressure to tighten the screws on North Korea, while the North's recent missile tests have done little to rattle Beijing. China's bottom line continues to hold: no to any measures that might topple Kim Jong Un's hard-line communist regime. (AP Photo/Jon Chol Jin)

In this image taken from a video footage run by China's CCTV via AP Video, a Long March 5 rocket lifts off from the Wenchang Space Launch Center in southern China's Hainan province on Sunday, July 2, 2017. Authorities say the Long March-5 Y2 launched Sunday had an abnormality during the flight after what appeared to be a successful liftoff. The failure of the Long March 5 rocket deals a rare setback to China's highly successful space program, one that will almost certainly delay plans to send a spacecraft to bring back samples from the moon later this year, along with other upcoming missions. Chinese characters at both reads "Long March-5 Y2 rocket life off." (CCTV via AP Video)
