We support ending state of war on Korean Peninsula: China

Friday, May 04, 2018

Beijing: China's top diplomat expressed support for a formal end to the state of war on the Korean Peninsula in a rare meeting yesterday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang. During his two-day visit to the North, Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi said Beijing was in favour of peace efforts between Seoul and Pyongyang, who have remained technically at war since the 1950s.

The North and South agreed last week to work towards a permanent treaty to replace a 65-year-old armistice agreement at a landmark inter-Korean summit, in the latest glimmer of rapprochement between the nuclear armed state and its neighbours. "China supports ending the state of war on the peninsula," China's foreign ministry quoted Wang as saying in a statement.

Beijing "supports North Korea's strategic focus on economic development and supports the North in resolving its legitimate safety concerns in the process of denuclearisation," said Wang, according to the statement.

Kim reiterated his commitment to denuclearisation during the talks with Wang, according to China's account of the meeting. The visit precedes a planned meeting between Kim and US President Donald Trump in the coming weeks.
