BEIJING (Reuters) - China's Foreign Ministry on Friday (Aug 11) called on all sides to speak and act with caution, amid rising tensions between North Korea and the United States.

China hopes all sides can do more to help ease the present tense situation and increase mutual trust, rather than taking turns in shows of strength, the ministry said in a short statement on its website.
