China urges caution over sanctions against North Korea

Beijing, Feb 19 (IANS) China on Friday urged the relevant parties to be cautious and show restraint to avoid complicating the situation as the US passed a bill to impose more stringent sanctions on North Korea.

No hot issues could be fundamentally resolved through simple sanctions or pressure, Xinhua reported.

Actions that may harm third-party’s legitimate interests will not help solve the issues, but only result in a more complicated situation, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei.

All parties concerned should stay calm and exercise restraint, sticking to the general direction of resolving issues through dialogue and consultations, said Hong.
