Expressing China’s vigilance regarding North Korea’s satellite deployment and the ensuing reactions from concerned parties, spokesperson Mao Ning articulated during a routine media briefing on November 22. She asserted that fostering peace and stability on the peninsula, coupled with progressing the political settlement process, aligns with the shared interests of nations in the region.
Collaborative efforts from South Korea, Japan, and the United States involved strategic positioning of Aegis destroyers to monitor the launch, with shared data analysis among the nations. The U.S. aircraft carrier Carl Vinson’s arrival in the South Korean port of Busan, part of a broader mission against North Korea’s nuclear and missile initiatives, further underscored the collective response.
Mao emphasized the necessity for all parties involved to maintain composure, exhibit restraint, and engage in substantive dialogue, addressing legitimate concerns in a balanced manner. China pledges to sustain a constructive role in facilitating a political resolution to the Peninsula issue.
