China Sunday called on all parties to maintain restraint and not exacerbate tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) launched what was believed to be a ballistic missile early Sunday, Yonhap News Agency of the Republic of Korea reported.

"China is aware of the situation," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said in a statement.

The UN Security Council resolutions are explicit about the DPRK's use of ballistic missile technologies, the spokesperson said, adding that China opposes actions by the DPRK in violation of the resolutions.

The situation on the peninsula is complex and sensitive. All parties should exercise restraint and do nothing to further aggravate regional tensions, Hua said.
