I'll go one step further and say I doubt Kim would give up his nukes even in the face of a Chinese ultimatum. North Korea's nuclear weapons represent as much an insurance policy against Beijing as it does against Seoul and Washington. I think Kim's more likely to be overthrown by a Chinese-backed coup than by an American military attack.
