China on Wednesday urged all sides to exercise restraint over the North Korea issue after the US military flew two Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers over the Korean Peninsula in a show of force.

Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the comment at a regular press briefing, adding that all sides should avoid provoking each other.

Yonhap News Agency reported that two US bombers from Guam entered the Korean Air Defense Identification Zone (KADIZ) at about 8:50 pm Tuesday.

They staged a simulated air-to-ground missile firing drill with two F-15K fighters over the East Sea and flew across the peninsula, it said.

The B-1Bs and the F-15Ks then had another firing exercise over the Yellow Sea. The bombers flew out of the KADIZ at about 11:30 pm。
