China urges all parties, particularly the United States and Russian Federation, to increase communication and coordination to avoid clashes in dealing with the Syrian crisis, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Thursday.

Wang's comments mark the latest attempt to cool tensions by North Korea's most important ally and key provider of food and fuel aid.

At a joint press conference on Friday with French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, he warned that anyone who provokes a war on the Korean peninsula must assume its historic responsibilities and pay the price for it.

The tensions amplified in Pyongyang, where Kim Jong-Un is constantly organizing nuclear tests, defying every single warning.

While it has traditionally played a minor role in the region, past year China's President Xi Jinping committed US$7.6 million in aid to Palestine in a historic address to the Arab League.

No reason was given for the suspension.

"Once a war really happens, the result will be nothing but multiple loss".

Wang went on to say that China calls on the global community to maintain solidarity and continue to support the United Nations as the main channel of mediation.

"If a war occurs, the result is a situation in which everybody loses and there can be no victor", he said during a joint press conference with his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault.

Wang said that the two countries should carry out pragmatic cooperation in nuclear energy, aviation and aerospace as well as in third party markets, adding that the two countries should also explore industrial production capacity cooperation in countries along the Belt and Road. Washington swiftly dismissed the idea, but some observers have said administration officials may be becoming more amenable to renewed dialogue with the North.
