China takes aim at US after new North Korea sanctions go into effect

Chinese foreign ministry says Beijing opposes Washington’s 'unilateral sanctions,' advocates return to six-party talks

China has come out against new sanctions imposed against North Korea, calling them unhelpful measures that worsen confrontation on the Korean Peninsula.

The remarks came as the U.S. designated six North Korean nationals, one Russian national and a Russian firm for working in support of North Korea’s weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and ballistic missile-related programs.
