BEIJING- China's Foreign Ministry said on Friday that it opposed North Korea's use of ballistic missiles in violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions.

The emphasis on curbing North Korea's missile and nuclear capabilities should not come at the expense of pushing for a peaceful and diplomatic resolution, ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said after North Korea fired a missile that flew over Japan's northern Hokkaido island far out into the Pacific Ocean.

Hua said China had made enormous sacrifices to implement United Nations Security Council resolutions and that its sincerity could not be doubted.
