Adjust font size:

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Thursday the country has "no difficulty" in having a six-party ministerial informal meeting during the ASEAN Foreign Ministerial meetings in Singapore on Sunday.

Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi would attend the ASEAN Foreign Ministerial meetings.

He said relevant countries had suggested an informal consultation gathering the six foreign ministers from countries involved in the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, namely hosts China, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, United States, Republic of Korea, Russia and Japan, on the sidelines of the ASEAN meetings.

"China has no difficulty with that (suggestion), and is coordinating with other parties on that," Liu said,

Chief delegates of the six-party talks on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue just ended three days of talks on July 12. They agreed to establish a verification mechanism for denuclearization and reiterated the six-party ministerial meeting would be held in Beijing at an appropriate time.
