Without naming North Korea by name,
China called for more efforts to ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula, after Pyongyang fired two projectiles into East Sea on Wednesday.
Since the firings came a day before Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to South Korea on this Thursday, there's speculation Pyongyang is expressing displeasure over his visit to the South with an absence of such a visit to North Korea.
However, China's foreign ministry downplayed such a possibility on Wednesday, saying Beijing sees no connection between President Xi's visit and the firings.
Beijing also dismissed similar claims earlier this week, after the North fired two Scud-type missiles into the East Sea on Sunday.
