"The deployment of the THAAD system will not bring a
solution to the issue of (North Korea's) nuclear testing and missile
launches," Liu told the council after it imposed new sanctions on North
Korea over two long-range missile launches, Reuters reported.
He also urged North Korea to "cease taking actions that
might further escalate tensions."
