BEIJING, April 2 (Xinhua) -- China is committed to achieving denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula as well as maintaining its peace and stability, Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui said Tuesday.

"We don't want to see any warfare or chaos on the Peninsula. We oppose any side making provocative statement or doing anything that undermines peace and stability on the Peninsula and in the region," Zhang told Xinhua.

Zhang said China has been paying close attention to the tense situation on the Korean Peninsula over the recent period of time, as the development of the situation is closely related to the stability of China's neighboring countries.

"I have met with ambassadors of relevant countries to China and expressed our serious concern over the current situation," he said.

"The Chinese side is always committed to achieving denuclearization as well as maintaining peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula, and advocates solving the problem through dialogue and consultation," he said.

China strongly urges all parties to keep calm and restrained, avoid provocation and refrain from taking any risky action that deteriorates the situation, Zhang said.

"We urge all parties to bear in mind the overall and long-term interests, adhere to the objective of achieving denuclearization on the Peninsula, actively carry out dialogues and make contacts, move to change the situation, and jointly safeguard peace and stability on the Peninsula," he said.
