China's role in Korean War more active than previously known Updated: 2012-06-23 00:00:00 KST

A US think tank says that China played a more active role in the Korean War than previously thought.
A detailed analysis carried out by the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, in Washington, showed Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai helped in providing tactical military advice to the North Korean military on several occasions before Beijing entered the conflict in late October 1950.
The findings revealed the premier ordered Beijing's ambassador to North Korea to deliver messages to North Korean leader Kim Il-sung on military strategy, including suggesting how his army formations should pull back after the Incheon landing.
On September 15th, 1950, United Nations forces led by the United States conducted a successful amphibious landing at Incheon, west of Seoul, setting the stage for the full-scale withdrawal of North Korean forces.
