|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang's Remarks on DPRK's Another Launch of Ballistic Missile|
Q: The DPRK claimed that it has successfully launched another intercontinental ballistic missile. What is your comment on that?
A: The Chinese side is following the developments of the situation. The UN Security Council has explicit stipulations on the DPRK using ballistic missile technology to conduct launching activities. The Chinese side opposes the DPRK's launching activities that violate the UN Security Council resolutions and run counter to the collective will of the international community.
The Chinese side urges the DPRK to observe the relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council and stop taking actions that might step up tensions on the Korean Peninsula. Meanwhile, we hope that relevant parties can act with caution to avoid further escalation of tensions and jointly uphold regional peace and stability.
