Beijing, Nov.25 (People's Daily Online) -- China on Thursday called on relevant parties to take efforts to ease the situation in Northeast Asia.

At the one-year anniversary of the artillery attack on Yeonpyeong Island Wednesday, South Korea conducted a large-scale military exercise on its maritime border with North Korea.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin was asked to make a comment on South Korea's recent military drill at a daily press briefing in Beijing yesterday.

"Maintaining peace and stability in Northeast Asia is in accordance with interests of all relevant groups in the region, including the ones in the South North Asia," said Liu.

Liu said China hopes relevant parties may continue to maintain contact and focus more on easing the tension. (Li Zhenyu)
