BEIJING – China is committed to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and urges all parties to de-escalate tensions through dialogue, Premier Li Keqiang said Wednesday.

Tensions may lead to conflicts, which will bring harm to all parties involved

The situation in the Korean Peninsula and even broader Northeast Asia has recently become tense, Li said at a press conference after the conclusion of the annual parliamentary session.

He said China hopes to see continued peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region.

"Tensions may lead to conflicts, which will bring harm to all parties involved," Li said.

"It is just a common sense that no-one wants to see chaos at his doorstep."

China hopes all parties make concerted efforts to de-escalate tensions and get issues back to the track of dialogue in order to find proper solutions, he said.

China has fully complied with UN resolutions on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and is a staunch supporter of upholding the international nuclear non-proliferation regime, the premier said.
