China And North Korea In Nuclear Talks
May 7, 2010
Jong-il and China’s President Hu Jintao have been in talks since Monday, and they concluded this morning.
“The two leaders said that the peace, stability, prosperity on the Korean Peninsula is in line with common interests of China, [North Korea] and the Northeast Asian countries, and the two sides will make joint efforts for denuclearization on the Korean Peninsular in accordance with the September 19 joint statement in 2005,” the Xinhua news agency reported.
“The two leaders said that the relevant parties in the six-party talks should demonstrate sincerity and make positive efforts for pushing forward the six-party talks.”
The move is believed to be an attempt to show the country is serious about rejoining Six Party talks, which were ended last year after the International committee began to put pressure on the nation to stop their missile testing and launches.
