BEIJING - A Chinese official met ambassadors from the United States and both Koreas to express "serious concern" about the situation on the Korean peninsula, China's Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday after North Korea closed access to a joint factory zone with the South.

China hopes North Korea and South Korea can resolve their differences through talks, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told reporters at a daily news briefing.

Factories in the Kaesong Industrial Park were still believed to be operating, but North Korea's decision to block entry is a further sign of the growing tensions on the Korean peninsula. On Tuesday, Pyongyang said it would restart a mothballed nuclear reactor.
