China: We’ll Not Allow War , Chaos As Tensions Escalate on Korean Peninsula
Local Editor

China stated it will not allow war or chaos on the Korean Peninsula, Reuters reports, as US B-1B bombers and South Korean fighter jets conduct a joint flight operation amid mounting tensions in the region.

The statement was made by defense ministry spokesman Ren Guoqiang at a monthly news briefing on Thursday, Reuters reports.

Four American warplanes - two nuclear-capable B-1B strategic bombers and two Marine Corps F-35Bs, held a joint flight operation with South Korean F-15K fighter jets on Thursday, according to Yonhap.

The maneuvers come just two days after North Korea's launch of a missile over Japan.

Ren Guoqiang also reiterated China's position that the North Korean crisis should be resolved through dialogue, and insisted on the denuclearization of the peninsula, according to Sina, citing the spokesman.

Russia also insists that there cannot be any military solution to the crisis on the Korean Peninsula. At the latest UNSC meeting, Russia's permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, reiterated Beijing and Moscow's ‘double freeze' initiative, recommending Pyongyang halt all nuclear and missile tests while the US and South Korea cease the military build-up in the region.

On Thursday, the Chinese Foreign Ministry also expressed concern, saying that the Korean issue is serious and not a computer game, Reuters reports, citing the ministry's spokeswoman, Hua Chunying.

The flyover of the North Korean medium-range missile was unanimously condemned by the UN Security Council, which convened for an emergency meeting following the test. The UN called on Pyongyang to halt their activities, which are "not just a threat to the region, but to all UN member states."

US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that "all options are on the table" regarding North Korea, later tweeting that "talking is not the answer." Trump also said that Washington has been paying Pyongyang "extortion money" while negotiating for over two decades.
