Top South Korean and Chinese nuclear envoys met in Seoul on Monday to discuss how to deal with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s nuclear issue.
"What is important is that the two sides have frank and in-depth consultations," Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Wu Dawei said after his meeting with Wi Sung-lac, special representative for Korean Peninsula peace and security affairs.
It is their second meeting in a month since early June when they met to discuss over the DPRK issues in Beijing.
Earlier in the day, the Chinese vice foreign minister had a breakfast meeting with South Korean Unification Minister Hyun In- taek.
Sharing views on denuclearization, the two sides agreed that it is the goal at the current stage and it should be achieved in a peaceful manner through dialogue, unification ministry spokesman Chun Hae-sung said at a press briefing.
They also agreed to make active efforts to resume the six-party talks, the spokesman added.
Wu will be leaving Seoul on Tuesday after meeting with South Korean Vice Foreign Minister Kwon Jong-rak.
Wu, current chairman of the six-party talks, arrived in Seoul on Sunday while visiting participating nations in the disarmament negotiations.
Last week, he wrapped up his tours to Russia, the United States and Japan.
