BEIJING  — Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao has called for all sides to show "maximum restraint" over recent tensions on the Korean Peninsula and says his country opposes military provocations of all forms.

Wen Jiabao also urged the international community to work to ease tensions that spiked after North Korea shelled a South Korean island on Tuesday. He repeated Chinese calls for renewed six-nation talks aimed at persuading North Korea to dismantle its nuclear programs.

Wen said those talks, involving the two Koreas, China, Russia, Japan and the United States, are the best way to ensure stability on the peninsula and its denuclearization.

Wen's remarks were made in Russia Wednesday on a state visit and posted on the Chinese Foreign Ministry's website.
