`Sanctions not fundamental way of solving Korean Peninsula N-issue`
Beijing: China`s Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi has said sanctions are not the fundamental way of solving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.
"The Democratic People`s Republic of Korea (DPRK) conducted its third nuclear test and tensions on the peninsula once again heightened. This is not something we want to see," Yang said at a press conference on the sidelines of the annual session of the National People`s Congress, China`s top legislature.
The UN Security Council on Thursday passed resolution 2094, demanding that the DPRK not proceed with further nuclear tests , give up any nuclear arms program, and return to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
The resolution also called for peaceful, diplomatic and political settlement of the current situation and a resumption of the six-party talks which began in 2003 but stalled in late 2008.
Yang said China holds that sanctions are not the end of the UN Security Council`s actions, or the fundamental way of solving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.
The only correct solution to the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue is to hold negotiations and resolve all parties` concerns in a comprehensive and balanced way, he said.
