"As a close neighbour of the peninsula, we will absolutely not permit war or chaos on the peninsula. This situation would not benefit anyone," Xi said.
According to Chinese officials, the United States conducted military operations in the South and East China seas. The US said that such patrols were conducted to let people know that international straits cannot be restricted by other countries.
Xi made it clear that China will install peace and stability in the South China Sea while maintaining its sovereignty. He also affirmed that Beijing is complying with the UN Security Council's resolution on North Korea and called for another meeting regarding the North Korean nuclear issue.
Xi hopes that North Korea would refrain from provoking the concerned parties and intensifying conflicts as he emphasized China's principles for the Korean Peninsula issue: realizing denuclearization, maintain peace and stability, and promoting peaceful resolution through dialogue.
