China will never allow ‘chaos and war’

CHINA again urged diplomatic talks to address the crisis with North Korea yesterday and warned at the UN Security Council it will not allow chaos and war on the peninsula.

“The situation on the peninsula is deteriorating constantly as we speak, falling into a vicious circle,” said Chinese Ambassador Liu Jieyi.

“The peninsula issue must be resolved peacefully. China will never allow chaos and war on the peninsula.”

His appeal was echoed by Russia, which said diplomatic negotiations were the only way to settle the crisis over North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs.

Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said there was “an urgent need to maintain a cool head and refrain from any action that could further escalate tensions.”

Russia backs China’s proposal for a freeze on North Korea’s tests in exchange for a suspension of US-South Korea military drills.
