Political Solution Still Far Off despite Singapore Summit, China Says

BEIJING – The Chinese Foreign Ministry stressed on Wednesday that despite the positive outcome of the United States-North Korea summit in Singapore, a political solution to the conflict has not yet been achieved and will require new negotiating efforts.

“It is a complex situation that cannot be solved overnight,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said during a press conference on Wednesday, a day before the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, is set to meet with the Chinese Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, to discuss the outcome of the historic Singapore summit.

“Both parts must be patient and continue to make unremitting efforts,” stressed the official source, who recommended “following up consultation so political settlement can become irreversible process.”

Geng was confident that the meeting with Pompeo would help Beijing and Washington to make progress on this issue and other issues related to international politics, and stressed that China, as a neighbor of the Korean peninsula, “will continue to remain committed and will contribute to achieving peace and stability” in the region.

When asked about the possibility of lifting sanctions against North Korea within the United Nations, the Chinese spokesperson said these punitive measures are not the final goal, and urged all parties to “cherish opportunities presented by the positive moment.”
