China Urges DPRK to Strictly Abide by Security Council Resolutions: Envoy

Jul 06 , 2017

China strongly urges the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to strictly abide by resolutions of the UN Security Council and refrain from exacerbating the tension on the Korean Peninsula, a Chinese envoy said here on Wednesday.
The DPRK's latest missile launch was a serious violation of relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions and was against the will of the entire international community, said Liu Jieyi, China's permanent representative to the United Nations, at a Security Council emergency meeting on the latest missile test conducted by the DPRK.
On Tuesday, the DPRK declared that it successfully launched an intercontinental ballistic missile.
"China finds this launching unacceptable," Liu said.
"We strongly urge the DPRK to strictly abide by the resolutions of the Security Council and put a stop to any rhetoric and action that might further exacerbate the tension on the Peninsula," Liu said.
"At the same time, we call on all the parties concerned to exercise restraint, avoid provocative actions and flagrant rhetoric, demonstrate the will for unconditional dialogue, and work actively together to defuse the tension," he added.
