BEIJING, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- China supports the UN Security Council to take necessary measures regarding the DPRK's nuclear test, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said Tuesday morning.
The UN Security Council Monday unanimously adopted a resolution to impose fresh sanctions on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) over its nuclear test on Sept. 3 for violation of previous Security Council resolutions.
Geng said the resolution reflected the unanimous stance of Security Council members in safeguarding peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and in the region, advancing denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula and upholding international non-proliferation.
He said the resolution called for a peaceful settlement through diplomatic and political means, supported the resumption of six-party talks and stressed measures to de-escalate tension on the peninsula.
"The Chinese side hopes that this resolution will be implemented comprehensively and completely," the spokesperson said.
As a neighbor of the Korean Peninsula, China has been closely following the development of the situation there, Geng said.
He said that China's unswerving stance was denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, maintaining peace and stability there and resolving problems through dialogue and consultation.
