BEIJING, Apr 19 (INP) Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has said that diplomatic means must be used to resolve tensions on the Korean Peninsula, where the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has vowed to continue with its nuclear and missile programs in defiance of UN sanctions.
Wang, speaking at a news conference in Beijing, urged all sides to find a peaceful solution. The remarks came a day after US Vice President Mike Pence warned the DPRK not to test Trump's resolve.
Pence said the world had witnessed Trump's resolve in the past two weeks, which saw a US missile attack on a Syrian airfield and the dropping of a powerful non-nuclear bomb on ISIL in Afghanistan.
"Once a war really happens, the result will be nothing but multiple loss. No one can become a winner," Wang told reporters at a news conference with French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault in Beijing, a day ahead Pyongyang paraded a huge display of missiles.
"As long as dialogue takes place, it can be official or unofficial, through one channel or dual channels, bilateral or multilateral. China is willing to give support to all of them," Wang said.
