China fears that tensions on the Korean peninsula could spiral out of control, President Hu Jintao told Barack Obama last night, according to state media.

The telephone call between the two leaders came as South Korea began fresh military exercises – including in an area close to the disputed Yellow Sea border – despite military warnings from the North. The US secretary of state Hillary Clinton will later today host talks with her Japanese and South Korean counterparts to discuss the North’s attack on Yeonpyeong island two weeks ago. They have said they will discuss China’s proposal for an emergency meeting of the six countries involved in the stalled aid-for-denuclearisation talks, which they have so far snubbed.

Beijing is under pressure from the US and others to rein in its ally. It has not criticised the North for the attack, merely calling on both sides to show restraint.
