Subject: How are China/North Korea Relations?

I'm curious, are they: Close Allies? Distant Allies? Neutral? Hostile (to any degree)? I would expect that North Korean nukes, besides being a threat to South Korea and Japan, would also be a threat to the Chinese eastern seaboard where Chinese economic and political centres are located.

North Korea is a dominion of China.
China doesn't claim Korea as a colony for 1) fear of invoking Korean memories of Japanese colonialization and 2) Ming dynasty and Qing dynasty allowed Chosun dynasty to rule as a semi-independent tributary state.

Historians will look back and say N. Korea was a satillete colony or client state of China just as they will say Iraq and Afghanistan was an extension of the United States Republican Empire.
