China has urged both sides on the Korean Peninsula to "turn the page" on the Cheonan warship sinking, and restart the six-party talks as soon as possible.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang made the remarks after the UN Security Council released a presidential statement on the incident.

Qin said the statement encourages the settlement of the outstanding issues on the Korean Peninsula, by peaceful means and the resumption of direct inter-Korean negotiations.

China's permanent representative to the UN, Li Baodong, voices hope that all parties concerned will continue to exercise restraint.
