BEIJING, April 14 (Xinhua) -- Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Friday warned that no one would win if there was war on the Korean Peninsula, advising against anything that could escalate the situation.
"We urge all parties to refrain from inflammatory or threatening statements or deeds to prevent irreversible damage to the situation on the Korean Peninsula," Wang said when meeting with the press following talks with French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault.
"There has been heightened tension between the United States, the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). This precarious situation deserves our attention and concern," Wang said.
China has always opposed any rhetoric or actions that could escalate tensions and, as history has shown us, dialogue has proved to be the only solution, he said.
"On the Korean Peninsula issue, it is not the one who espouses hasher rhetoric or raises a bigger fist that will win," Wang said.
"If war breaks out on the Korean Peninsula, multiple parties will lose and no one will win," Wang stressed.
