Today, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) conducted once again a nuclear test in disregard of widespread opposition from the international community. The Chinese government is firmly opposed to that.
To realize denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula, prevent nuclear proliferation and safeguard peace and stability of Northeast Asia is China's firm position. We strongly urge the DPRK side to honor its commitment to denuclearization and stop taking actions that worsen the situation.
Peace and stability of the Peninsula and Northeast Asia serves the common interests of all parties. The Chinese side will press firmly ahead with denuclearization on the Peninsula and stay committed to resolving the Korean nuclear issue within the framework of the Six-Party Talks.
