Adjust font size:

Actions which may worsen the nuclear arms situation should be stopped China has urged the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). China also expressed its hope that all parties would persist in seeking a solution through consultation and dialogue, President Hu Jintao said on Monday night.

He made the remarks in a telephone conversation with US President George W. Bush after the DPRK announced it had conducted a nuclear test.

Hu told Bush that it was China's consistent stance to realize non-nuclearization on the Korean Peninsula and to oppose the proliferation of nuclear weapons to safeguard peace and security on the peninsula and in Northeast Asia. "This policy will not change," Hu said.

He expressed Beijing's wish to work jointly with Washington to deepen the development of a Sino-US constructive partnership.

Hu noted that leaders of the two countries had maintained frequent exchanges of views and consultations on international and regional issues of common interest. This was conducive to safeguarding peace and stability in Northeast Asia and the world.

Bush said the DPRK had embarked on a dangerous road with its nuclear test. But the US believed there was still room for diplomacy to settle the issue and communication with China would continue on the subject.
