bal­lis­tic mis­sile in the next three days.

The launch would be the lat­est in a series by Py­ongyang this year in vi­o­la­tion of United Na­tions Se­cu­rity Coun­cil res­o­lu­tions that ban all bal­lis­tic-mis­sile re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties by the DPRK. The DPRK con­ducted its fifth nu­clear test on Sept 9.

US Deputy Sec­re­tary of State Antony Blinken vis­ited China, South Korea and Ja­pan last week when the DPRK’s nu­clear is­sue was a key topic.

The UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil has been dis­cussing a new draft res­o­lu­tion on ad­di­tional sanc­tions on the DPRK.

For­eign Min­istry spokes­woman Hua Chun­y­ing re­it­er­ated on Mon­day the Chi­nese stance of reach­ing de­nu­cle­ariza­tion on the Korean Penin­sula, safe­guard­ing its peace and sta­bil­ity, and re­solv­ing rel­e­vant is­sues through di­a­logue and ne­go­ti­a­tion.

“It serves the in­ter­ests of all,” she said.

“We main­tain that ac­tions by the Se­cu­rity Coun­cil should help re­al­ize the afore­men­tioned goals with­out im­ped­ing nor­mal busi­ness co­op­er­a­tion and ex­changes be­tween all par­ties and the DPRK,” Hua said.
