Qian, while addressing a press conference, said the North Korean nuclear issue and the trade between China and the United States belong to different spheres and are not related - hence they should not be discussed in the same breath.
"North Korea's nuclear issue and the issue of trade between China and the United States are two different issues".
But China can't solve the nuclear crisis on its own.
In a statement after the launch, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that "China and Russian Federation bear unique and special responsibility" for North Korea's "growing threat to regional and global stability". The article warned the US against pushing responsibility for the growing crisis onto China and adding fuel to the fire.
US, Japan taking action against North Korea after latest missile launch
Reportedly, the missile proved its ability to strike America's mainland, drawing a sharp warning from US President Donald Trump . However, US defence secretary James Mattis warned last month that a conflict could result in tragedy "on an unbelievable scale".
The piece also criticised the U.S. for sending a pair of B-1B bombers to fly over the Korean peninsula two days after North Korea's successful missile test on Friday.
Meanwhile the US Air Force flies B-1 bombers in a "North Korea nuke drill" as Donald Trump may be "poised to launch military strike" against the rogue state.

"We're making significant progress on that, working with both sides of Pennsylvania Avenue", said William Evanina, National Counterintelligence Executive, referring to the White House and Congress.
Ambassador Liu Jieyi called for a more cautious approach to the North Korea situation, urging dialogue over sanctions or a military solution.
A senior Chinese trade official said Monday the President Donald Trump is wrong to pull the issue of China-U.S. trade into the debate over what to do over growing North Korea security threats.
China remains North Korea's most important ally and trading partner, despite strains in their relationship in recent years.
