China urges North Korea not to go further in a 'dangerous direction'

UNITED NATIONS, Sept 21 (Reuters) - China's foreign minister on Thursday called on North Korea not to go further in a "dangerous direction" with its nuclear program and said negotiation was the only way out of the crisis over Pyongyang's weapons development.

Wang Yi also told the annual U.N. General Assembly there should be no new nuclear weapons on the Korean peninsula, whether north or south of the border. (Reporting by David Brunnstrom and Yara Bayoumy; Editing by James Dalgleish)
