Chinese President Xi Jinping vowed that his country will prevent war from breaking out between North and South Korea, in an address to several Asian foreign ministers on Thursday.
Speaking at the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia, Xi added that an armed, potentially nuclear conflict in the Korean peninsula would be detrimental to all parties involved, Reuters reports.
“As a close neighbor of the peninsula, we will absolutely not permit war or chaos on the peninsula,” he said. “This situation would not benefit anyone.”
