China said U.S. sanctions against Chinese companies for allegedly helping North Korea advance its missile program “will not help solve the problem.”

“If Chinese companies or individuals have done anything against the U.N. Security Council’s resolutions, we will punish them according to Chinese laws and regulations,” Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Wednesday in Beijing during a regular news briefing. “The U.S. move will not help solve the problem.”
