Q: What is China's comment on the DPRK's announcement of its plan to launch a satellite soon?
A: We are concerned about the DPRK's announcement of its plan to launch a satellite and noticed the reactions of other parties. The DPRK is entitled to peaceful use of the outer space which is subject to relevant UN Security Council resolutions. We hope relevant parties can do more for peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula. We also hope that all parties concerned can exercise calmness in order to avoid further escalation of the situation.
