BEIJING - Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi held telephone talks late Tuesday with US Secretary of State John Kerry on the latest nuclear test of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

During the talks, Yang said China has explicitly stated its position on the DPRK's nuclear test.

China called on all parties concerned to keep focused on the overall situation, deal with the issue properly, and prevent the situation from escalating, he added.

All parties concerned should stick to the direction of a peaceful solution, resolve the issue of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula within the framework of the six-party talks, and safeguard peace and stability on the peninsula and in Northeast Asia at large, Yang said.
