Worsened tension on Korean Peninsula
Beijing: China urged all parties to avoid any action that might worsen tensions on the Korean Peninsula following a reportedly failed launch of an intermediate-range ballistic missile by Pyongyang last Friday. The UN Security Council resolution was clear about the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) missile issue, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a regular news briefing when asked to comment Pyongyang’s latest move.
“As the current situation on the Peninsula is complex and sensitive, we hope all parties can comply with the Security Council resolution and avoid worsening tensions,” Mr Lu said. Mr Lu called on all parties to work to maintain peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula. Xinhua
