China's Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Sunday, expressing firm opposition to and strong condemnation of a nuclear test undertaken by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

The DPRK Sunday successfully detonated an H-bomb, a hydrogen bomb that can be carried by an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), its official media agency announced. This was the sixth nuclear test the DPRK has undertaken.

China's firm stance, as well as the common goal of the international community, is achieving denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula, protecting the nuclear non-proliferation mechanism and maintaining peace and stability in northeast Asia, the statement said.

China strongly requires the DPRK to seriously consider the steadfast will of the international community on a denuclearized Korean Peninsula and to comply with the UN Security Council resolutions, the statement said.

China demands the DPRK cease incorrect actions that worsen tensions and run against its own interests, and return to dialogue to resolve problems, the statement said.
