China on Tuesday urged all parties involved in the crisis sparked by the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship to exercise restraint, saying dialogue was preferable over confrontation.

Foreign ministry's spokeswoman Jiang Yu also said that peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and in the region was in the interest of all parties, and that China would not tolerate any actions that would disturb that peace.

"We sincerely hope that all parties concerned stay calm and exercise restraint to properly handle relevant issues in order to avoid an escalation of the situation," Jiang told reporters.

"We believe dialogue is better than confrontation."
