China supports the UN Security Council's "necessary measures" to resolve tension in the Korean Peninsula after Pyongyang conducted nuclear tests, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said on Tuesday.

The UN Security Council on Monday unanimously adopted a resolution to impose fresh sanctions on Pyongyang over its nuclear test on September 3 for violation of previous Security Council resolutions.

Geng said the resolution reflected the unanimous stance of the Security Council members in safeguarding peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and in the region, Xinhua news agency reported.

He said the resolution called for a peaceful settlement through diplomatic and political means, supported the resumption of six-party talks and stressed measures to de-escalate tension on the peninsula.

"The Chinese side hopes that this resolution will be implemented comprehensively and completely," the spokesperson said.

As a neighbour of the Korean Peninsula, China has been closely following the development of the situation there, Geng said.

He said that China's unswerving stance was denuclearising the Korean Peninsula, maintaining peace and stability there and resolving problems through dialogue and consultation.
