China responsible of implementing UN resolutions on N. Korea: FM

TOKYO, March 8 (KUNA) — Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Tuesday China has the responsibility and capability of implementing the United Nations Security Council resolutions on North Korea for its nuclear issue, state-run Xinhua News Agency reported. “China is a permanent member of the UN Security Council. We have the responsibility and capability to implement various resolutions passed by the Security Council, including Resolution 2270 concerning North Korea,” Wang told a press conference in Beijing on the sidelines of the national legislature’s annual session.
China will adopt an objective and impartial attitude to carry out necessary evaluation, determination and monitoring, said Wang, noting that the new resolution not only contains sanctions, but also reiterates the support for the six-party talks and asks various parties to refrain from taking any action that might aggravate tensions.
“To eventually resolve the peninsula issue, we have to adopt multi-level approach and apply the right medicine. To have blind faith in sanctions and pressure would in fact be irresponsible to the future of the peninsula,” the minister added.
The UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2270 on March 2 to punish North Korea for conducting its fourth nuclear test in January and subsequent launch of a long-range ballistic rocket last month. (end) mk.nfm
