BEIJING, April 16 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman on Tuesday denied media reports of China's military buildup on its border with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

"Such reports are not true," Yang Yujun said while answering a question at a press conference which was held on the same day China released a national defense white paper.

Reports in foreign media earlier this month alleged that China was bulking up its military presence on the DPRK border amid an escalation in tensions in the region.

China is paying close attention to the development of the current situation on the Korean Peninsula and will remain committed to safeguarding peace and stability in Northeast Asia, Yang said.

It is widely known that the peninsula's situation is "complex and sensitive," he said, responding to another question.

China believes that a peaceful and stable Korean Peninsula is in the interests of people from all countries in the region, while unrest could mean disaster to them, Yang said.

Under a clear and consistent stance, China is committed to maintaining peace and stability, advancing the Korean Peninsula's denuclearization, and addressing and settling the problem through dialogue, the spokesman said.

SHENYANG, Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- Some 253,500 residents have been safely evacuated in northeast China's Liaoning Province after torrential rains caused waters to rise to the highest level in more than a decade along a major river bordering China and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), local officials said Sunday.
