China seeks early US-N. Korea talks

China seeks early US-N. Korea talks

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Thursday urged the United States and North Korea to hold bilateral talks as soon as possible to achieve denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, while pledging that Beijing will work together with other countries for that goal.

Wang was also asked about the recent developments in his press conference, and his answer went into more detail than previous statements from the Foreign Ministry.

As a step to alleviate security concerns, Wang has proposed a "double suspension" approach, where North Korea would suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the United Sates and the South suspending their joint military drills.

Wang further highlighted the impact of dialogue in easing out the tensions between the DPRK and the Republic of Korea during the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games.

China had been proposing that US and South Korea should stop their war games directed at the North in exchange for Pyongyang suspending its nuclear and missile programmes.

He also praised the China's suspension-for-suspension program to improve the inter-Korean bilateral relationship.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un have now agreed to meet at the border and discuss a halt to the weapons testing. "China will take necessary measures in the event of a trade war".

North Korea and the United States reached a framework agreement in Geneva in 1994 to freeze construction of the North's nuclear reactors, but that accord unravelled in 2003.

"This proves that China's proposal of suspension for suspension was the right prescription for the problem and created basic conditions for the improvement of inter-Korean relations", Wang said.

"Despite the light at the end of the tunnel the journey ahead will not be smooth", he stressed. In the past, Chinese analysts have suggested that Washington does not truly want to solve the Korea issue, because a lasting peace there would remove the rationale for its bases in South Korea.

"Now is a crucial moment for testing the sincerity of the parties", who must show political courage to restart dialogue for the peaceful settlement of nuclear issue, Wang said.
