China Urges Dialogue after New UN Sanctions against North Korea

BEIJING – China urged on Tuesday for a return to dialogue to resolve the North Korean crisis after a new resolution by the United Nations approved stricter sanctions restricting the North’s imports of oil and oil products and banning its textile exports.

The resolution was unanimously backed by the 15 members of the council, including China, in order to maintain peace and promote denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said in a statement.

“China hopes that the contents of Resolution 2375 can be implemented in a comprehensive and complete manner,” the spokesperson added.

Beijing believes the only sustainable solution to the crisis is dialogue, Geng stressed, while urging all parties involved in the dispute to take responsibility and begin talks as a “military solution will lead us nowhere.”

Geng added North Korea should respect the UN resolutions and “stop pushing forward its nuclear and missile programs.”

He also urged the United States and South Korea to “avoid taking actions that will further complicate the situation,” and reiterated Beijing’s proposal of dual suspension of military maneuvers by Seoul and Washington and weapons tests by Pyongyang as a “practical and viable way” to tackle the crisis.

Beijing also firmly opposed the installation of the US-built Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system in South Korea saying it “severely jeopardizes the strategic security of China and other countries in the region.”
