Beijing supports Seoul's and Pyongyang's improving ties and will work with Seoul to push for an easing of tensions on the Korean Peninsula, Premier Li Keqiang told the Republic of Korea's visiting foreign minister on Wednesday.

China has always been committed to the denuclearization, peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula, and strongly opposes all contrary actions, Li said while meeting with Yun Byung-se.

Yun told Li that the ROK appreciates the efforts China has made to maintain peace and stability and realize denuclearization on the peninsula.

ROK President Park Geun-hye and the new government attach great importance to the country's ties with China and would like to further promote exchanges and boost common development, Yun said.

Quiet diplomacy

After weeks of harsh rhetoric from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, quiet diplomacy is taking shape regarding the country and its nuclear and ballistic-missile ambitions.

Coinciding with Yun's visit to China, Wu Dawei, the special representative of the Chinese government on Korean Peninsula affairs, visited Washington for an exchange of ideas on the DPRK issue with US officials.

On the same day, US Deputy Secretary of State William Burns was in Japan to discuss the DPRK issue.
