BEIJING - Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei on Monday called for the full implementation of relevant UN Security Council resolutions after the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) fired missiles into the East Sea.

The DPRK Monday fired two more short-range missiles into the East Sea, after launching one on Sunday and three on Saturday, according to Yonhap News Agency of the Republic of Korea (ROK).

"China has noted related reports and the reactions that followed," Hong said at a daily press briefing.

Maintaining peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula conforms with the aspirations of the people in the region and is in the common interest of all concerned parties, he said.

He called on all sides to ease tensions, improve relations and solve problems through dialogue in order to maintain peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

A report by a UN panel of experts said increasingly tough financial sanctions have significantly delayed the expansion of Pyongyang's nuclear program, according to Reuters.

Responding to a question regarding the report, Hong said China has always stood for dialogue and consultation in promoting denuclearization and maintaining peace and stability on the peninsula.

Relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council should be implemented strictly, he said, adding that as a permanent member of the UNSC, China has performed its duties faithfully in this regard.
