Beijing counsels caution to North Korea, endorses tough UN sanctions

Foreign Minister Wang Yi seeks final crisis resolution at negotiating table

MANILA -- China on Sunday counselled its belligerent ally North Korea to cease long-range missile launches and nuclear testing after endorsing a United Nations' resolution for tougher sanctions on Pyongyang the previous day.

Foreign Minister Wang Yi said he told Ri Yong-ho, his North Korean counterpart, not to go against the U.N. or strain international goodwill with further launches and tests. The two ministers met in Manila where the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Regional Forum, a regional security gathering, convenes on Monday.
