CHINA supports the UN Security Council in taking necessary measures regarding North Korea's nuclear test, foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said yesterday.

"The proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, as well as their means of delivery, constitutes a threat to global peace and security", the Council said in today's text.

The UN Security Council Tuesday adopted a new resolution imposing extra sanctions on the DPRK, including restricting its crude and refined oil imports, banning its textile exports and restricting overseas firms from hiring DPRK citizens.

"The Chinese side hopes that this resolution will be implemented comprehensively and completely".

He said that China's unswerving stance is for denuclearising the Korean Peninsula, maintaining peace and stability there and resolving problems through dialogue and consultation. "China will not allow war or chaos on the Korean peninsula", the statement said.

The resolution prohibits UN Member States from providing work authorizations for DPRK nationals unless "is required for the delivery of humanitarian assistance, denuclearization or any other goal", consistent with other resolutions on the topic.

Geng said the dual suspension of North Korea's nuclear and missile programme plus US-South Korea military exercises and a "dual-track" approach combining sanctions and talks were practical and feasible ways to resolve the crisis.

Sri Lanka joins the worldwide community in urging the DPRK to refrain from further action of this nature, to comply with the relevant UN Security Council resolutions, and to resume dialogue, facilitating the peaceful resolution of issues, which would be in the interest of peace, and the wellbeing and prosperity of the people of DPRK, and the region.

"We called on the relevant parties to work with China to push for dialogue and negotiation and make joint efforts to realise peace and stability on the peninsula".

This he said will severely harm the strategic security of China and other countries in the region, and damage the trust and cooperation among related parties on the Korean Peninsula issue.
