Ambassador Fu Cong's Remarks on the DPRK's Missile Test at the Plenary Meeting of the Conference on Disarmament
2017/02/22

Mr. President,

We have noted with concern the latest missile test by the DPRK, and we are closely following the developments. The Security Council resolutions contain clear provisions on launches using ballistic missile technology by the DPRK. China is opposed to the DPRK's launch which violates the Security Council resolutions. Given the current circumstances, relevant parties should not engage in provocative moves which could escalate regional tensions. All parties need to exercise restraint and make a joint effort to maintain regional peace and stability.

As a permanent member of the UN Security Council and a responsible member of the international community, China has always enforced the Council's resolutions in their entirety, promoted peace talks, and made unremitting efforts to facilitate the settlement of the issue of the Korean Peninsula.

We believe that only dialogue and consultation offers the way out. And We have always encouraged relevant parties to step up communication, dialogue and engagement. It is hoped that relevant parties will shoulder their due responsibilities and contribute their due share. China, for its part, will continue to work for a proper settlement of the relevant issues under the framework of the Six-Party Talks and the maintenance of peace and stability on the Peninsula.

Thank you, Mr. President.
