China calls for restraint after North Korea threats to U.S.

BEIJING (Reuters) - China said on Tuesday it hopes all sides on the Korean peninsula can exercise restraint, after North Korea ordered its strategic rocket and long-range artillery units to be combat ready to target U.S. military bases on Guam, Hawaii and mainland America.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei made the comments to reporters at a daily briefing.
