BEIJING – The situation on the Korean
peninsula is at a very dangerous stage, Chinese Foreign Minister
Wang Yi told counterparts from the BRICS group of nations,
China’s Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

The urgent task is to prevent North Korea’s nuclear and
missile programmes progressing and to avoid a further escalation
in tensions and to especially prevent resorting to arms, Wang
said, speaking in New York on the sidelines of a United Nations
meeting.
