China is reportedly constructing large-scale military facilities in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Region in northeastern Jilin Province just north of the border with North Korea.
Radio Free Asia said Saturday that Chinese military authorities began to evacuate local residents at Kaishantunzhen in Longjing City to another area in August in preparation for the construction of a large military base. The report said heavy construction equipment is currently being brought into the area.
The U.S. international broadcaster quoted a source as saying that North Korea also built an observation post at the top of a mountain across from the border to monitor the Chinese military move.
An ethnic Korean resident in Longjing claimed that the Chinese leadership seems to be preparing for the collapse of the Kim Jong-un regime.
