China urges North Korea not to violate UN resolutions

BEIJING -- China urged North Korea not to violate UN Security Council resolutions with its nuclear and missile programmes, after Pyongyang said it had successfully tested what it called an intermediate-range ballistic missile.


"We urge North Korea to not do anything to again violate UN Security Council resolutions," Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a statement posted on the Foreign Ministry's website on Tuesday.


"At the same time, we hope all parties can maintain restraint, not be influenced by every single incident, ... persist in carrying out Security Council resolutions on North Korea and persevere with the resolution of the issue through peaceful means, dialogue and consultation."


Wang was responding to reporters' questions on Monday while in Ivory Coast, according to the statement.
