Beijing: China on Friday warned its ally North Korea against carrying out a nuclear test, saying such a "dangerous and irresponsible" move could lead to a breakout of conflict at any moment amid soaring tensions with the US. China Foreign Minister Wang Yi said there would be "no winner" in any war as tensions soar with the US.
"There has been heightened tension between the United States, the Republic of Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. The precarious situation deserves our attention and concern," Wang said without directly referring to strong retaliation threatened by US President Donald Trump if North Korea resorted to nuclear test.
Later, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said North Korea should not carry out nuclear test. "UNSC resolution stated clearly that DPRK (North Korea) should give up all nuclear and missile related programmes. Stop relevant programmes. It is very clear," he said.
