China says it agrees U.N. Security Council should respond further on North Korea

BEIJING (Reuters) - China said on Thursday that it agreed the U.N. Security Council should make a further response on North Korea.

Sanctions were only half the solution and must be combined with dialogue and negotiation, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters.

The United States asked the U.N. to impose an oil embargo after North Korea’s latest and biggest nuclear test.
