“Our stand is clear, that is to realize denuclearization in the peninsula, safeguard peace and stability and solve problems through dialogue and negotiations.”
Wang further explained that security lies at the heart of the nuclear issue.
“The international community urges the DPRK to give up its nuclear and missile programs, while the DPRK hopes to ease external military pressure. That’s why the nature of the nuclear issue is not the economy but security,” he said.
He said there are two major components in the resolution — one is sanctions and the other is to call for the resumption of the Six-Party Talks.

China hopes the “double suspension” proposal could gain understanding and support from related parties.
