China expresses regret over North Korea rocket launch

Baku, February 7, AZERTAC 

China has expressed regret at Pyongyang's rocket launch, according to the Associated Press.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in a statement that although China believes that North Korea should have the right to peaceful utilization of space, "at present this right is restricted by U.N. Security Council resolutions."

The statement says Beijing hopes all relevant parties will calmly deal with the issue, act with discretion and not take actions that may cause further escalation of tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
