Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said Wednesday that China remains strongly opposed to it.
The United Nations Security Council meets to discuss North Korea on September 4, 2017.
Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang also reiterated Beijing's opposition to South Korea's deployment of the US Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence System, also known as THAAD, which is meant to protect against North Korean missile attacks.
Tension on the Korean peninsula has escalated as North Korea's young leader, Kim Jong Un, has stepped up the development of weapons, testing a string of missiles this year, including one flying over Japan, and conducting its sixth nuclear test on Sunday.
The system, known as THAAD, was first deployed to a former golf course in the rural southern area of Seongju in April.
The THAAD is thought to be the world's most advanced interceptor.
Seonju residents and activists have raised worries over rumoured health hazards linked to the system's powerful radar and the possibility the town will become a target of North Korean attacks.
Those threats have prompted both Beijing and Moscow to agree on increasingly tougher sanctions against North Korea, most recently backing a Security Council ban of the country's coal, iron, iron ore, lead and seafood exports. The trade issue is unrelated to North Korea but has been a source of tension between the two allies.
North Korea vehemently objects to military exercises on or near the peninsula, and China and Russian Federation have suggested the United States and South Korea halt their exercises to lower tension. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that it was too early to draw conclusions about the final form of the United Nations resolution, Russia's Interfax news agency quoted Lavrov as saying at a news conference on Friday.

The clinic narrowly escaped the closure, ordered for April 3, when a judge stepped in to issue a temporary restraining order . Clinic officials argued those impossible demands had no medical basis and would shut the clinic down.
Moon and Putin met on the sidelines of an Eastern Economic Forum in the Russian city of Vladivostok, that began on Wednesday.
At the news conference on Wednesday, Putin also reiterated Moscow and Beijing's calls for the US and North Korea to avoid escalatory rhetoric, skepticism of the need for further sanctions, and support for a "parallel freeze" of DPRK testing and U.S.
Putin made the remarks Wednesday after meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Vladivostok, Russia.
The bid for the toughest penalties yet against North Korea comes despite renewed warnings against such moves by the leaders of China and Russian Federation, which have veto power in the Security Council.
President Moon Jae-in, a leftist, had vocally opposed the installation of new THAAD launchers in the country, as neighboring countries like China and Russian Federation have opposed the THAAD system arguing that its extensive reach deep into their territories proved it was not meant to defend from only North Korea. In a situation where North Korea continues to develop nuclear weapons and long-range missiles despite the strong concerns and warnings of the worldwide community, it's obvious that South Korea can not just be a bystander.
"We must not yield to emotions or try to drive North Korea into a corner".
The decision came three days after the communist North staged its latest and possibly most powerful nuclear test so far on Sunday.
Japan's Kyodo news agency reported that Abe and Moon would seek Russian and Chinese support for new sanctions against the North.
