China, North Korea Call for Furthering Denuclearization Dialogue with US

BEIJING – The foreign ministers of China and North Korea expressed confidence on Friday that the dialogue with the United States would be carried forward in order to move towards the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

North Korea’s Ri Yong-ho met his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi on during a visit to China, aimed at strengthening bilateral ties. It follows three China visits this year by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“The foreign minister of DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, North Korea’s official name) said the DPRK is committed to denuclearization. He (expressed) hope the US and DPRK will establish necessary mutual trust and meet each other halfway,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said in a press briefing.

Wang Yi highlighted the improvement in the situation on the peninsula, and expressed Beijing’s will to keep working with Pyongyang towards denuclearization, according to the spokesperson.

“We hope the DPRK and the US maintain a dialogue to realize the goal clarified in their joint statement,” Geng said, referring to the agreement reached in June by Kim and US President Donald Trump at their historic summit in Singapore.

Ri highlighted progress in North Korea’s bilateral relations with China and said his country wanted to work for regional peace and stability.

Trump has announced he expects to hold a second summit with Kim in the beginning of next year, although US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s Pyongyang visit in October, aimed at making preparations for the summit, reportedly did not lead to much progress in this direction.
