DPRK urged to con­sider US ‘of­fer’

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

He cau­tioned against ex­pec­ta­tions of quickly reach­ing an agree­ment, adding that talks are bet­ter than iso­la­tion.

“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 that all re­lated par­ties could earnestly take into ac­count and ac­cept China’s “dou­ble sus­pen­sion” pro­posal which re­quires the DPRK to sus­pend its mis­sile and nu­clear ac­tiv­i­ties in ex­change for the sus­pen­sion of largescale joint mil­i­tary drills by the US and the Repub­lic of Korea.

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