BEIJING, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- China Wednesday welcomed the upcoming north-south summit in Pyongyang set for next month, saying it looks forward to positive results.

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the Republic of Korea (ROK) agreed Monday to hold a third summit between their respective leaders Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-in in Pyongyang in September.

"We welcome the agreement and commend the efforts of both sides to this end," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said in a press statement.

He said China, as a close neighbor, is glad to see and supports contact and dialogue between the north and south of the peninsula, as well as efforts to implement the Panmunjom Declaration and promote reconciliation and cooperation.

"We hope that the summit will be held smoothly and yield positive results, and believe the efforts will help forge ahead the denuclearization process and a political solution on the peninsula," Lu said in the statement.

Kim and Moon signed the Panmunjom Declaration after their first meeting on April 27. Under the declaration, the two leaders agreed to strengthen cooperation and exchanges.
