China urges restraint after latest North Korea missile test

BEIJING (Reuters) - China urged all parties to remain calm and exercise restraint on Monday after North Korea said it successfully tested an intermediate-range ballistic missile.

Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the comment at a daily news briefing in Beijing, while reiterating that China opposed North Korea’s missile activities, which run counter to U.N. resolutions.

North Korea conduced its latest missile test on Sunday.
