BEIJING: China on Tuesday urged the United States to "properly handle" issues related to the leaking of secret diplomatic cables through the WikiLeaks website.
"We hope the US side will properly handle relevant issues," foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei said when asked about the leaks.
The leaked cables contained allegations that China turned a blind eye to illicit North Korean missile parts exports and that the top Chinese leadership was behind cyber attacks on US web search giant Google and US targets.
"We don't want to see any disturbance to China-US relations," Hong added during a regular press briefing.
Another cable quoted Chinese officials calling the erratic North Korean regime -- China's close ally -- a spoiled child and said Beijing would be wiling to accept a reunited Korea.
