BEIJING - China said in Beijing Tuesday that maintaining peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula meets interests of all relevant sides.

China's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the comments in response to a journalist's question at a daily press briefing.

Maintaining peace and stability on the peninsula should also be "the common responsibility of all relevant sides," Hua said.

"The current situation on the peninsula remains highly complex and sensitive. We hope all sides do more things conducive to relaxing tensions on the peninsula," she said.

According to media reports, officials from the United States said that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea has withdrawn two Musudan missiles from a launch site on its east coast.

When asked to comment on the summit between the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the United States, Hua said that "it is a matter between them to keep normal relations."

She added, "Meanwhile, we hope the ROK-US relationship can play a constructive role for peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and the East Asia region at large."

ROK President Park Geun-hye and US President Barack Obama will meet on  May 7 in Washington DC.
