On September 13, 2016, Foreign Minister Wang Yi held telephone talks at request with Foreign Minister Yun Byung-Se of the Republic of Korea (ROK), exchanging views on the Korean Peninsula situation and others.

Wang Yi said that China has expressed its opposition to the nuclear test of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). The Chinese side agrees with the UN Security Council in making necessary response to the nuclear test, and asks all parties to stay calm and exercise restraint to avoid any actions that would escalate the tension. The Korean Peninsula nuclear issue will eventually be resolved through dialogue and negotiation.

Wang Yi reiterated China’s stance of opposing the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense missile defense system in the ROK by the US, urging the ROK to respect China’s concerns and act prudently.
