China, DPRK to hold dialogue on Korean Peninsula situation


18:39, June 17, 2013

BEIJING, June 17 (Xinhua) -- The foreign ministries of China and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) will hold a strategic dialogue on Wednesday in Beijing.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the announcement at a Monday press briefing.

Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui and DPRK First Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye Gwan will co-chair the talks, Hua said.

The two sides will exchange views on bilateral relations and the situation on the Korean Peninsula, as well as international and regional issues of common concern, she said.

The DPRK has proposed high-level talks with the United States "to defuse tension and realize regional peace and security on the Korean Peninsula," the DPRK's National Defense Commission announced on Sunday.

The White House on Sunday stated its desire to have "credible" negotiations with the DPRK, but demanded that the DPRK take steps to show its readiness to abide by its obligations.

Hua said China has always stood for denuclearization, as well as maintaining peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

She reiterated that China will remain committed to a peaceful settlement of the issue through dialogue and consultation.

Hua said she hopes all sides concerned will keep their overall interests in mind and create conditions for the early resumption of the six-party talks.
