Top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Il has said he hoped for an early resumption of the six-party talks to ease tension on the Korean Peninsula.

Kim expressed the hope during talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao Friday in Changchun, capital of northeast China's Jilin Province.

Kim, general secretary of the Worker's Party of Korea and chairman of the DPRK's National Defense Commission, paid an unofficial visit to China from August 26 to 30.

He said the DPRK's stance on adhering to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula had remained unchanged, and the country "is not willing to see tensions on the peninsula."

Kim expressed the wish to maintain close communication and coordination with China in pushing for an early resumption of the six-party talks to ease the tension on the Korean Peninsula, and to maintain peace and stability of the peninsula.
