China is strongly urging both sides of the Korean Peninsula to show calm and restraint, and to solve issues through peaceful dialogue. China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations Wang Min made the remarks on Monday at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

Chinese deputy ambassador to the UN Wang Min said, "Maintaining peace and stability on the peninsula is in the interest of both the south and north of the peninsula, as well as other relevant parties. We strongly appeal to relevant parties to exercise maximum restraint, act in a responsible manner, and avoid increase of tensions. Calm rather than agitation, dialogue rather than confrontation, peace rather than warfare, this is the strong aspiration and voice of the peoples from both sides of the peninsula and the international community. China strongly urges both sides of the peninsula to keep calm and restraint, solve differences through peaceful dialogue and engagement. China will continue to make every effort towards this end. Thank you all."
