China Stands for Settling DPRK Nuclear Issue Through Dialogue
The Chinese government stands for settling the nuclear issue in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) through dialogue, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zhang Qiyue said in Beijing Tuesday.

She summarized China's stance on the DPRK nuclear issue in three points at a regular news conference. Firstly, China stands for safeguarding peace and stability on the Korean peninsular; secondly, it adheres to the realization of the peninsula's non-nuclearization and; thirdly, China hopes that the parties concerned would resolve the DPRK nuclear issue through dialogue.

China has made active efforts to find a solution, she said, noting that it had kept in frequent contact with the relevant parties and played a constructive role.

Zhang noted Chinese Foreign Minister Tang Jiaxuan had discussed the issue by phone with his counterparts in the countries concerned before the new year, and that on Jan. 3 he had a phone talk with British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Jack Straw.

Meanwhile, she added, China consulted and had talks with the relevant countries through different channels.

China hoped that the DPRK nuclear issue could be resolved through dialogue so as to ease the present tension on the Korean Peninsular, the spokeswoman said.
