“The UN Security Council resolution should be implemented by the whole international community and not just one country,” said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei at a daily press conference.
Hong made the remarks after being asked if the major responsibility lies with China since about 90 percent of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (DPRK) trade volume is from China.
Resolution 2270, which was unanimously adopted by the 15-country council on March 2, requires states to inspect all cargo going to and from the DPRK. It imposes an asset freeze on all funds and other economic resources owned or controlled, directly or indirectly, by the DPRK government or by the Workers Party of Korea, if they are found to be associated with its nuclear or ballistic missile programs or any other prohibited activities.
The resolution also calls for the resumption of the six-party talks, a multilateral dialog mechanism brokered by China, which was designed to facilitate a peaceful solution to the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula.
The talks, which involve China, the DPRK, the United States, the Republic of Korea, Russia and Japan, stalled in late 2008.
“The resolution aims to curb the DPRKs nuclear and missile plan without affecting the peoples livelihood and humanitarian needs. It also calls for the resumption of the six-party talks to ease the situation through political and diplomatic ways. This is the fundamental solution of the Korean nuclear issue,” Hong said.
He added that the resolution, therefore, should be implemented in a comprehensive and balanced way without deliberately highlighting one aspect or neglecting others.
The spokesperson reaffirmed that China will implement the resolution seriously and comprehensively. All parties should also abide by it with concrete and comprehensive actions, including playing a positive role in restarting the talks and avoiding actions that may intensify the tense situation, he added.8.03KRelated StoriesDPRK fires projectiles into the seaDPRK fires 6 short-range projectiles in wake of UN resolutionUN votes new sanctions on DPRKPhotoUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchEfforts needed for sustainable projects1st Panda cub born in France named Yuan MengFree trade studies agreed on as Li meets with Canadian PM TrudeauChina-JapanChina-USChina-AfricaChina-EuropeLi tells Japanese business leaders its time for bilateral cooperationChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationGroup of lawmakers visit notorious Yasukuni Shrine in JapanJapan can offer experience, expat saysChina-Japan ties seen at dialogue as benefit to regionChina, Japan officials exchange views on security issues at 15th dialogueChinese music finds new foothold in United StatesC919 flies toward air worthinessPolitical leaders: Sino-US relations to growChina vows steps after US launches probe into aluminum tradeGates is added to top-tier Chinese academyYao helps AB InBev fight alcohol abuseAction urged over pollutionUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityChina vows to deepen bilateral ties with new Zimbabwe govtChinese, African parties meet to share wisdom on modernization2nd China-Africa Investment Forum begins in MoroccoLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchPeak performance by Chinese nurse on Scotlands mountains9-month festival of Chinese art, heritage to be staged in Liverpool, UK, next yearChina eyes closer economic, trade cooperation with BelarusPremier calls to enhance trade liberalization and facilitation in SCOPremier: China to advance production capacity with UzbekistanAsia PacificUS & CanadaEuropeAfricaMiddle EastChinese tourists go to South KoreaChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingBelt and Road a great opportunity: Uzbek officialKwaussie wins Australias word of the yearJapan can offer experience, expat saysTrudeau visits Sina WeiboChina, Canada agree to issue joint statement on climate changeDemocrats stand united against GOP tax billUS quits talks on global migration pactTensions triggered over possible moveSino-Canadian bilateral trade ties to deepen furtherMay gets little gasp as EU extends deadline for sufficient progress in Brexit talksRussia banned from Pyeongchang Winter OlympicsGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchBoth first ladies name panda cub Yuan MengLiu Yandong heralds bilateral cooperation in education and researchEthiopian FM urges strengthened Ethiopia-China tiesUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaAction urged over pollutionBelt and Road Initiative to help countries achieve UN goals: officialChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityMorocco king holds historic talks with South African president in AbidjanYemens ex-president Saleh, relatives killed by HouthisTrump recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital would raise regional tensionsYemen rattled by raids as clashes spreadSquash a perfect match for girl refugees in JordanSyrian talks in Geneva to continue to Dec 15: UN envoyAll parties in Syria urged to join talksMost PopularHot TopicsMyanmar electionChina and JapanDPRKSyrias refugee crisisGreek debt crisisSouth China SeaMH370Iran nuclear talksMERS virusNepal earthquakeReporters JournalFor political symbolism and silliness, the writings on the wallWeird architecture battle: China moves to discourage oddball buildingsAncient Silk Road embodies spirit of globalizationHighlightsJohn Kerry visits ChinaXi visits Saudi Arabia, Egypt and IranXi-style diplomacy in 2015…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
