The comments were carried on the website of China's foreign ministry. They follow North Korea's launch of a ballistic missile from a submarine earlier on Wednesday that flew about 500 km (310 miles) towards Japan. (Reporting by Ben Blanchard; Editing by Paul Tait)

A Turkish soldier stands guard on the Turkish-Syrian border in KarkamisBy Humeyra Pamuk and Umit Ozdal ISTANBUL/KARKAMIS, Turkey (Reuters) - Turkish special forces units and jets supported by warplanes from the U.S.-led coalition launched an operation in northern Syria on Wednesday to wipe out Islamic State militants along the border with Turkey, Turkish officials said. The Turkish army began firing artillery rounds into the Syrian border town of Jarablus at around 0100 GMT (0900 ET) and Turkish and U.S. warplanes pounded Islamic State targets with airstrikes as part of the operation, Turkish military sources said. It was the first time warplanes from NATO member Turkey have struck in Syria since November, when Turkey shot down a Russian jet near the border, and the first known incursion by Turkish special forces since a brief operation to relocate the tomb of Suleyman Shah, a revered Ottoman figure, in February 2015.
