China opposes any action that may worsen the situation on the Korean Peninsula, and hopes all relevant parties can act in a way conducive to the stability of the peninsula, President Hu Jintao said on Tuesday.

Hu made the remarks when meeting with visiting Vice President of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Yang Hyong Sop Tuesday afternoon.

Hu, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said China is "seriously concerned" since "some new complicating factors" appeared on the Korean Peninsula.

"China has always been committed to maintaining the peace and stability on the peninsula, and insisted on resolving the relevant issues through peaceful dialogues and negotiations", Hu said.
