China says no one should bring chaos to Korean peninsula

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - South Korea fired warning shots Tuesday at an unidentified object flying south from rival North Korea, its military said.

In a similar incident on January 16, a year ago South Korea fired at a suspected North Korea drone at the demilitarized zone.

Hours after the Cheonan corvette was sunk in 2010 by what Seoul later said was a North Korean torpedo attack, killing 46 sailors, the patrol boat Sokcho "spotted unidentified objects which were moving north at a great speed and she opened up with 76 mm cannon", Yonhap news agency reported.

The test Sunday involved a medium-range ballistic missile that has a shorter range than others fired by the communist regime in recent months, the White House said.

"On the basis of not violating the relevant (Security Council) resolutions, China maintains normal business and trade ties with the DPRK", foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters, using the initials of North Korea's official name.

China fully implements its U.N. Security Council sanction commitments toward North Korea and will continue to play a constructive role in negotiations, Wang said.

"I am making them because only then will the United States talk to me".

That came a week after North Korea tested what it said was a new type of rocket capable of carrying a large nuclear warhead. In case that happens, the U.S. Army, Air Force, Marines and Navy will be ready to help South Korea with 28,500 troops already in the country.

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a text message that the military is analyzing the flight path of the said object.

In 2014, South Korean officials discovered what they described as several North Korean drones that had flown across the border.

Despite sanctions and pressure, North Korea has repeatedly vowed to further develop its missile and nuclear weapons program, viewing it as a deterrent against what it claims is Washington's hostile policy against it.

In the coming days, Moon is expected to dispatch diplomatic and security envoys to the US, Russia, China and Japan to discuss the North Korean issue.
