China hopes to create conditions for relaunching six-party talks


07:59, December 16, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 15 (Xinhua) -- China has the desire to work with other parties to create conditions for the relaunch of the six-party talks, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said Thursday.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin made the remark at a daily press briefing.

Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi and Special Representative for Korean Peninsula affairs Wu Dawei met with U.S. Special Representative on Korean policy Glyn Davies on Wednesday and exchanged views regarding the resumption of the six-party talks, Liu said.

"China believes that the six-party talks can be an effective mechanism in achieving denuclearization and lasting stability on the Korean Peninsula," the spokesman said.

It is in line with all parties' common interests to restart the six-party talks as soon as possible and resolve all parties' concerns through negotiations, Liu noted.

Before visiting Beijing, Davies also visited the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Japan, along with U.S. special envoy for the six-party talks Clifford Hart and several national security staffers from the White House. Davies held meetings with senior ROK and Japanese diplomats and discussed the prospects for the long-stalled talks.

The six-party talks, held between the U.S., China, Russia, Japan, the ROK and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), were launched in 2003, but became bogged down in December 2008 after six rounds of discussion. The DPRK left the talks in 2009.
