China urges US, N Korea to avoid ‘head-on collision’

1 min


China has called on North Korea to suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the US and South Korea halting military war games, to avoid what it called a “head-on collision”.

“To defuse the looming crisis on the [Korean] peninsula, China proposes that as a first step, the DPRK [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea] may suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the halt of the large-scale US-ROK exercises,” Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Wednesday, using the acronyms for the two Koreas.

He also said South Korea is making a mistake in deploying the US anti-missile defence system THAAD, which he said undermined China’s security.
