BEIJING - No party has the right to incite or start a war on the Korean Peninsula, said China's Deputy Foreign Minister, Cui Tiankai, in Beijing Monday.

"No one has the right to cause bloodshed of the people on the peninsula," Cui said while commenting on the region's mounting tensions at the 13th China-Australia human rights talks.

He said negotiation, rather than war or conflict, was the only viable solution to their differences and disputes.
