China Criticizes North Korea’s Provocative Acts

BEIJING – China called on Thursday for an end to provocative words and acts in the Korean conflict in response to North Korea’s decision to launch two new short-range missiles and to liquidate assets belonging to South Korean firms operating in its territory.

“The situation in the Korean peninsula is highly charged. It calls on all parties to keep calm, exercise restraint and avoid provoking each other,” said China’s foreign ministry spokesperson Hong Lei.

Beijing is trying to remain neutral in the conflict, but has ticked off North Korea several times over the last few days.

On Tuesday, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China will not allow North Korea to pursue its nuclear or missile programs.

Nonetheless, China, a historical ally of North Korea, has also protested the large scale naval maneuvers being carried out by South Korea and the United States this week, and also the former’s decision to approve unilateral sanctions against the North, independent of those imposed by the United Nations.
