A top Chinese commander has indicated that the situation on the Korean Peninsula is calming down after North Korea raised tensions by taking provocative actions, NHK reported on Sunday.

The Deputy Chief of the General Staff, Lieutenant General Qi Jianguo, was answering questions after his speech at the Shangri-La Dialogue security summit in Singapore on Sunday.

Qi said the Chinese military understands that North Korea's leadership is stable at present and shows no sign of collapsing.

He also said countries should take advantage of this situation and stressed the need to boost cooperation for regional stability.
