|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Qin Gang's Remarks on the Security Council's Adoption of a Resolution on the DPRK's Nuclear Test|
Q: The UN Security Council adopted Resolution 2094 on the DPRK's third nuclear test on March 7 Beijing time. What is China's position?
A: The UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2094 on the DPRK's third nuclear test on March 7 Beijing time.
As a close neighbour of the Korean Peninsula, China has been committed to realization of denuclearization of the Peninsula and maintenance of peace and stability in Northeast Asia. China supports the Security Council in taking necessary and appropriate reactions to the DPRK's nuclear test. Meanwhile, we believe relevant reactions should be conducive to the overall peace and stability of the Peninsula and Northeast Asia.
Resolution 2094 of the Security Council demonstrated the international community's objection to the DPRK's nuclear test. Meanwhile, it pledged to peacefully solve the Korean nuclear issue through dialogue and negotiation and reiterated its support and call for the resumption of the Six-Party Talks. Generally speaking, the Resolution is a balanced one. China holds an objective and fair position and has played an important and constructive role throughout the discussion on the Resolution.
It serves the common interests of the whole international community to safeguard peace and stability of the Peninsula and Northeast Asia. China urges relevant parties to remain calm and restrained, and refrain from further taking actions that may escalate the tension. We call on all parties concerned to uphold dialogue and negotiation, solve the issue of denuclearization of the Peninsula within the framework of Six-Party Talks and explore an effective way to fundamentally realize long-lasting peace and stability of the Peninsula and Northeast Asia. China will continue to make unremitting efforts to this end.
