China said Thursday it has always supported that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the Republic of Korea (ROK), and the DPRK and the United States improve their relations through dialogues and consultations.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei made the comments at a regular news briefing here.

Hong said China is happy to see that the DPRK and ROK, and the DPRK and the U.S. will have contact and dialogue as soon as possible and achieve positive results.

China holds that the six-party talks are an effective platform for safeguarding peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula, realizing the peninsula's denuclearization and achieving long-lasting peace in the Northeast Asia region, Hong said.

China hopes that relevant parties would work together to promote the early resumption of the six-party talks, Hong said.

The six-party talks, involving China, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), the United States, the Republic of Korea (ROK), Russia and Japan, started in 2003. The sixth and last round of talks were held in December 2008.

"We believe that bilateral dialogues and multilateral talks can complement and promote each other, and can be carried on further," Hong said.
