Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said Beijing agrees with the UN Security Council's further responses to Pyongyang's sixth nuclear test, hoping a consensus could be reached based on full discussion among the members.

The Security Council is set to vote on Monday to impose new sanctions on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea over the nuclear test this month.

"China agrees that the UNSC further responds to the DPRK's sixth nuclear test and takes necessary measures," Geng said in a daily news conference in Beijing on Monday. "We hope the Security Council members could reach consensus on the basis of full discussion and send a united voice to the outside."

He noted that all past Security Council resolutions have two aspects, namely placing sanctions on Pyongyang while calling for an early resumption of Six-Party Talks.

"We hope the response of Security Council this time could help to realize denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula, maintain its peace and stability, as well as pushing forward a peaceful solution through talks," he said.
