Chinese Premier condemns provocations in Korean Peninsula

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2010-05-28

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, currently on a three-day visit to South Korea, condemned Friday all acts threatening stability on the Korean Peninsula and said he would not "harbour" persons connected to the March sinking of a South Korean naval ship.

REUTERS - Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao told South Korean President Lee Myung-bak on Friday that he condemned all acts that threaten peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and would not "harbour" anyone over the sinking of a
South Korean naval ship in March.
 
"China objects to and condemns any act that destroys the peace and stability of the Korean peninsula," Wen said during a meeting with Lee in Seoul, according to a South Korean official citing the Chinese leader's comments.
 
Wen is on a three-day visit to South Korea.

Antagonism between North and South Korea has escalated after South Korea said it was convinced that in late March North Korea torpedoed its warship, the Cheonan, killing 46 sailors.

North Korea has denied sinking the ship, and China has stayed low-key about the dispute, urging restraint from all sides.
