Chinese government on Tuesday called on the parties involved in the Six-Party talks to maintain dialogue, show flexibility and work together more closely to create conditions for the resumption of the talks, aimed at achieved a nuclear-free Korea Peninsula.

China's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu told reporters in Beijing that the parties involved had intensified contacts lately to discuss how to restart the stalled talks.

Beijing has supported reconciliation and cooperation between the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the Republic of Korea (ROK).

As a friend and neighbor of both the DPRK and the ROK, China believed that improvement of DPRK-ROK relations and promotion of reconciliation and cooperation between them were in the common interests of their people and conducive to regional peace, stability and prosperity, she said.

The six-party talks over Pyongyang's nuclear issues, involving China, the ROK, the DPRK, the United States, Japan and Russia, were launched in 2003 but stalled in April 2009 when Pyongyang pulled out of the talks in protest of UN condemnation of its missile tests.
