VIENNA, March 6 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Tuesday called for relevant parties to put together wisdom, and make joint efforts for an early resumption of the six-party talks aiming at properly solve the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula.

Cheng made the remarks at a quarterly IAEA board meeting.

Practice has proved that the six-party talks was an efficient mechanism to promote the denuclearization of the Peninsula and safeguard peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula and the region of Northeast Asia, which is also an important platform to improve the relations among relevant parties, he said.

He noted that relevant parties have made unremitting efforts to promote the restart of the six-party talks since last board meeting in November, 2011.

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, Cheng said.

China also hopes to see the consensus met by the two parties can be effectively implemented as soon as possible and will create an environment favorable to the restart of the six-party talks, he added.

The United States and the DPRK reached a sweeping deal during their recent direct talks in Beijing.
