A Chinese foreign ministry spokesman said in Beijing Tuesday that China hopes the concerned parties to make joint efforts to restart the six-party talks soon.
Kong Quan made the remark at a routine press conference, saying that the six-party talks mechanism was jointly established by the six parties. All of them considered the mechanism vitally important and indispensable for peacefully resolving the nuclear issue on Korean Peninsula and maintaining the regional peace and stability.
China always calls on the concerned parties to establish mutual respect and strengthen dialogue and communication to deal well with the issues and overcome the difficulties in current process, Kong said, noting that such actions would help restart the talks in a timely manner.
"China hopes that the concerned parties will make efforts to restart the talks as they said in the statement they made during the first phase of the fifth round of six-party talks", Kong added.
