China urges calm and restraint on North Korea nuclear test plan

BEIJING (Reuters) - China called for calm and restraint on Thursday after North Korea said it would carry out further rocket launches and a nuclear test that would target the United States.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei made the comments at a daily news briefing.

Hong also urged the “relevant party” not to take any steps that would raise tensions.
