BEIJING - China called again on Friday on all parties involved in the dispute over North Korea's rocket and proposed nuclear weapons test to remain calm and avoid any actions that could increase tension.

"It seems that North Korea does not appreciate China's efforts," said the Global Times in an editorial, a sister publication of the official People's Daily. For a full story, see.
