Without making a direct mention of North Korea's latest nuclear weapons test Sunday morning, Chinese President Xi Jinping made a call to diplomacy as the only way is extinguish "the flame of war," according to The Guardian.

"Thanks to the joint effort of all countries, global peace has reigned for more than half a century; however, incessant conflicts in some parts of the world and hotspot issues are posing challenges to world peace," Xi said in a Sunday speech in Southeast Asia, which was attended by Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, per the report.

"The intertwined threats of terrorism and a lack of cybersecurity — among others — have cast a dark shadow over the world. People around the world want peace and cooperation, not conflict or confrontation."

Xi has been a key figure between the United States and North Korea. The Trump administration has called out China to do more in orchestrating peace in the tense Korea Peninsula.

The Chinese foreign ministry issued a statement similar to previous ones on North Korean missile tests, saying it "resolutely opposes and strongly condemns" them, according to The Guardian.

"China will work with the international community . . . to unswervingly push forward the denuclearization of the peninsula and to unswervingly maintain peace and stability on the peninsula," the statement read, per the report.

President Trump included China in his Twitter response to North Korea's latest provocations, which are "hostile and dangerous" acts by the "rogue nation," and serve as "embarrassment" to China.

President Trump then follow up with another tweet, suggesting diplomacy "will not work."
