China on Monday urged the UN Security Council members to speak in one voice on denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in the wake of DPRK's latest nuclear test on September 3.
At a daily press conference, China's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said Beijing wishes the UN Security Council members to remain united and take a common stand on the matter.
"China supports the UN Security Council to take necessary steps to further respond to DPRK's sixth nuclear test. We hope members of the council will reach a consensus on the basis of full consultation and be able to make a unified voice. "
Geng noted that the Security Council's actions should contribute to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in a peaceful manner while maintaining stability in the region.
The US on Monday revised a draft resolution which called for fresh sanctions on the DPRK over its nuclear test. The UN Security Council is set to vote on the resolution on Monday afternoon New York time.
