Chinese FM stresses denuclearization, peace, dialogue on Korean Peninsula issue

Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Saturday called for denuclearization, peace and dialogue on the Korean Peninsula issue.

“China’s stance on the Korean Peninsula is consistent. No matter what happens, China will stick to denuclearization and peace on the peninsula and settling the issue through dialogue,” Wang said in talks with visiting U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

Stressing that China is seriously concerned about the situation, Wang urged related parties to refrain from any act that may escalate the tension, as well as called for restoring the six-party talks.

Wang called for the parties to have dialogue, improve relations, build trust, jointly promote the denuclearization of the peninsula and attain lasting peace in northeast Asia.

He underscored China’s unremitting efforts towards this goal.
