Adjust font size:

China welcomes "positive results" yielded from an inter-Korean summit on promoting peace and cooperation on the Korean Peninsula, said Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao here on Thursday.

"China always supports two sides of the Korean Peninsula to improve bilateral relations and realize reconciliation and cooperation through dialogue," Liu said.

"We welcomes the positive results of inter-Korean summit and believes that it is conducive to the peaceful progress of the Korean Peninsula and to the peace and stability in the region," Liu said.

President of the Republic of Korea (ROK) Roh Moo-hyun traveled to Pyongyang, capital of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), on Tuesday for the inter-Korean summit, the second of its kind since the Korean Peninsula was divided more than half a century ago.

Roh's predecessor, Kim Dae-jung, traveled to the DPRK for the first inter-Korean summit in June 2000.

Roh and the DPRK top leader Kim Jong Il signed a joint declaration in Pyongyang Thursday, reaffirming their commitment to promoting peace on the peninsula and economic cooperation between the two sides.
