Restraint key to preventing tensions between DPRK and ROK escalating

China Daily | Updated: 2015-08-24 07:50

The Republic of Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea resumed their high-level emergency contact in the village of Panmunjom inside the Demilitarized Zone on Sunday, less than a day after their first-round of talks, which lasted for nearly 10 hours. The meetings come amid tensions heightened by a cross-border exchange of fire on Thursday that was triggered by the ROK resuming propaganda broadcasts. Comments:

We urge the two sides to maintain calm and exercise restraint, properly deal with the current situation through contact and dialogue, and stop any action that will likely intensify tensions. China is willing to work with all the parties concerned for peace and stability on the peninsula.

Hua Chunying, China's Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Aug 21
