BEIJING, March 15 (Xinhua) -- China is committed to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and proposes all parties de-escalate tensions through dialogue and consultation, Premier Li Keqiang said Wednesday.

Li told a press conference after the close of the annual parliamentary session that the situation in the Korean Peninsula and even broader Northeast Asia has recently become tense.

"Tensions may lead to conflicts, which will bring harm to all parties involved," Li said. "It is just a common sense that no one wants to see chaos at his doorstep."

China hopes all parties make concerted efforts to de-escalate tensions and get issues back to the track of dialogue in order to find proper solutions, he said.

China has fully complied with UN resolutions on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and is a staunch supporter of upholding the international nuclear non-proliferation regime, the premier said. Enditem
