China hopes all the relevant parties will cherish the progress made on Korean Peninsula nuclear issues and stick to solving the issues through dialogue, Geng Shuang, a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, told reporters Friday at a press conference.

The remarks come after DPRK top leader Kim Jong Un guided a strike drill of defense units of the Korean People's Army in the forefront area and on the western front on Thursday. The two projectiles estimated to have flown around 420 km and 270 km were launched during the drill at around 4:30 p.m. local time, according to the Republic of Korea (ROK)'s Joint Chiefs of Staff.

China has no knowledge of the characteristics of the two projectiles, said Geng, stressing that what is truly important is that all parties should contribute to the further easing of tensions on the Korean Peninsula and the denuclearization of the peninsula.
