Beijing, July 4: Chi on Tuesday criticised North Korea’s ballistic missile launch earlier during the day and warned Pyongyang to stop violating UNSC resolutions in this regard. “Chi opposes North Korea for breaching the UN Security Council resolutions to conduct launching activities,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said during a press conference here. “We urge North Korea to stop and create needed conditions for the resumption of talks on peace and denuclearisation on the Korean peninsula,” Geng was quoted as saying by Efe news.
Following the intercontinental missile launch, confirmed as successful by North Korea, Geng said Beijing has been following the event closely. The spokesperson stressed that the UNSC (whose rotating presidency was assumed by Chi on Monday) resolutions “have clear rules on North Korea’s ballistic missile technology and activities of (ballistic missile) launches”.(IANS)
