China on the Escalation of Tension in the Korean Peninsula

China draws red line for North Korea issue: war is not allowed

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi took a tough position on the North Korea issue on Wednesday, saying that war on the Korean Peninsula is absolutely unacceptable.

 

Wang made the remarks in a press conference after a Sino-German dialogue on cooperation with Sigmar Gabriel, the German vice-chancellor and foreign minister in Germany.

 

“Of course we believe that the continued nuclear tests violate UN Security Council resolutions, but carrying out nonstop military exercises around the Korean Peninsula is clearly not in line with the spirit of Council resolutions,” Wang Yi said. 

 

He added that it is

imperative to return to dialogue as soon as possible.

 

Wang Yi said that the goal of the Chinese side is firm; that is, to realize the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and establish a mechanism for peace on thePeninsula.

 

 He said China is willing to continue to play a constructive role to that end, but warned of the dangers of the situation.

 

“As for the likelihood of war, even a one percentpossibility of war breaking out is not acceptable,” Wang Yi said.

 

“The Korean Peninsula isnot the Middle East. If war breaks out, the consequences would be unimaginable.”

 

China has drawn a red line for the U.S., North Korea, and South Korea, that war on the Korean Peninsula is not allowed and that all consequences would be borne by the relevant countries should war break out.
