Chinese Media Stresses on Limiting UNSC's North Korea Sanctions to Avoid Humanitarian Crisis

  • A day after UNSC (United Nations Security Council) unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea, Chinese state media lashed out at the US for its arrogance and not trying to understand that they have a role in lessening tension. The front page commentary at People's Daily criticized North Korea for flouting UN rules by launching two intercontinental ballistic missiles but at the same time pointed out that the sanctions should have been targeted and shouldn't cause negative impact on ordinary people and humanitarian situation. China has called on both the USA and South Korea to lower military activities and drills on the peninsula.
