BEIJING, March 21. /TASS/. China is concerned about the current situation on the Korean Peninsula and calls on Pyongyang to observe all UN resolutions, Chinese Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Hua Chunying told a briefing on Monday.
"We are very concerned about the current situation on the Korean Peninsula. We hope that the North Korean side will not do what goes against the resolutions of UN Security Council. We also hope that all sides will be able to maintain calmness and restraint, as well as avoid any actions that may lead to increasing confrontation and escalating tensions on the Korean Peninsula," Hua said commenting on North Korea’s latest missile launches.

South Korean military "has been brought to combat readiness and are closely following the developments," the ministry added.
