Geng also ex­pressed hope that all re­lated par­ties will keep calm and re­strained, de-es­ca­late the ten­sion on the Korean Penin­sula, and pull the is­sue back to the right track of peace­ful talks as soon as pos­si­ble.

China took over the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil presidency in July.

Liu re­it­er­ated the Chi­nese “sus­pen­sion for sus­pen­sion” pro­posal pack­age — sus­pen­sion of nu­clear and bal­lis­tic test­ing on the part of the DPRK, and sus­pen­sion of mil­i­tary ex­er­cises on the part of the US and the Repub­lic of Korea.
