BEIJING (Reuters) - China said on Friday that it stands for stability and peace on the Korean peninsula and for settlement of the issue through talks, after U.S. President Donald Trump said that China may be influencing North Korea.

Foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang made the comments at a regular briefing in Beijing.
