BEIJING, March 6 (Xinhua) -- China welcomes the positive progress made during the recent talks between the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the United States on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said Tuesday.

Yang made the remarks at a press conference on the sidelines of the annual session of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature.

The six-party talks have become an effective mechanism and important platform for discussing and resolving the issues concerning the Korean Peninsula, said Yang.

"I believe that recently, there has been a positive trend and various parties have been engaged in sound interactions and contact," he said.

"We hope all the parties concerned will put together their wisdom, remove disturbances and work together to play a constructive role for advancing the six-party process, achieving denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and lasting peace of northeast Asia," said Yang.

He said Chinese leader will be present at the second nuclear summit later this month in Seoul, which is expected to work out new measures to enhance nuclear security in the peninsula.
