China opposes North Korea’s nuclear test

Beijing, Jan 6 (IANS) China opposes the latest nuclear test conducted by North Korea, a Chinese foreign ministry statement said on Wednesday.

The ministry made the statement after North Korea announced on Wednesday that it has successfully carried out its first hydrogen bomb test, Xinhua reported.

“China is steadfast in its position that the Korean Peninsula should be denuclearised and nuclear proliferation be prevented to maintain peace and stability in Northeast Asia,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.

China strongly urges North Korea to honour its commitment to denuclearisation, and to cease any action that may deteriorate the situation, Hua said.

“The peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and in Northeast Asia meet the common interests of all concerned.”

China is determined to advance denuclearisation on the Korean Peninsula, and settle the nuclear issue through the six-party talks, Hua said.
