CNN PRODUCER NOTE Lawyer hellodmz from Bejing was in Pyongyang, North Korea, in late March and early April for business and found a country that did not seem to be preparing for war. Although on business, he took some time to take in the sights, including the famous Kim Il Sung Square in the center of the city, where many of the country's enormous military parades are held . As someone from China, long North Korea's chief ally within the international community, he says he feels China has "no reason" to get involved in the current crisis. "People in China are following the situation closely but are not convinced that war is really coming, although it seems more serious than in the past," he says.
