China envoy: U.S. should stop threats over N. Korea

China rebuffs US demand to cut off oil exports to North Korea

China rebuffs US demand to cut off oil exports to North Korea

However, North Korea warned Washington on Monday against a new round of sanctions and said its retaliatory measures "will cause the United States the greatest pain and suffering it had ever gone through in its entire history". Beijing has backed United Nations sanctions against the North.

Defiant North Korea has fired 22 missiles during 15 tests since February, despite worldwide calls for the country to stop its weapon operations.

And the rouge state's weapon tests have put a strain on China and North Korea - two historical allies.

"China is not the driving force behind the escalating situation".

She said Beijing has made "enormous sacrifices" in an effort force Pyongyang to end its weapons programme.

Now, however, Beijing could agree to such a ban, according to experts like Cheng Xiaohe, deputy director of Renmin University's Centre for China's International Strategic Studies.

Meanwhile, China has warned the USA and North Korea to "hit the brakes" on threats and actions, and work towards a peaceful resolution of their dispute.

"If someone were to pressure China or impose sanctions on China over the DPRK, it would not be supported by many U.S. citizens", the Chinese diplomat added, referring to North Korea by the acronym for its official name, Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Asked what specifically the US should do, Cui said "they should refrain from issuing more threats" and "do more to find an effective way to resume dialogue and negotiation".

The North wants South Korea to stop its annual drills with the U.S., which it views a rehearsal for war. "They can not just leave the issue to China alone, and honestly I think the United States should be doing more, much more than now, so that there is real effective global cooperation on this issue, Cui said".

China's ambassador to Washington on Friday called on the United States to refrain from making threats over North Korea, which a day earlier launched another missile over Japan into the Pacific Ocean. According to the state-run KCNA news agency, leader Kim Jong-un said: "Our goal is to make the rulers of the USA dare not talk about military option regarding us".

Tensions in East Asia have risen in recent weeks following North Korea's nuclear tests and missile launches. "This includes the regime of North Korea, which has once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors and the entire world community".
