China on Friday called on the U.S. and the DPRK to refrain from flaunting their power and raising tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
 
China's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang called for calm in a press statement responding to the increasing tensions between the U.S. and the DPRK.
 
The DPRK military said in a statement on Thursday its plan to strike Guam with intermediate missiles would be ready by mid-August.
 
U.S. President Donald Trump warned that if the DPRK were to attack anyone related to U.S. concerns, they should be very nervous.
 
The spokesperson said the current situation on the Korean peninsula is complicated and sensitive, and China hopes all related parties will consider their words and actions, and contribute to easing tensions.
